Anytime I try to log into Ichat, it will not except the password. The password I use is the exact same one I used to create the account. Can anyone help?

    If this is an @Mac.com or @me.com name from iCloud, did you keep the password to 16 characters of Less ?

    This is an AIM Server limit.


    If you are using an iCloud issued @me.com name in iChat 5 or an earlier version it will not work.

    They only work in iChat 6 as this version of iChat also logs in to Me.com which then allows the AIM server to "See" the password.


    After that I would be guessing in the dark due to the lack of info in your post.
