Joe thanks for the reply but I am still confused here is the problem:
I opened The accounts window and went to my ME.com account but it wants me to set up an AIM account , what is that all about . I was sure I was sending the messages thru the apple server .
Second I am a PC person and this is my wifes I-Mac, so I am new to MACS but I have used PC's for 35 years.
She wants to be able to send me I-Messages for her MAC that is why I am trying to set this up for her. She is NOT a Techie and so she depends on me. I am very confused by the MAC as I have buily trouble shoot and fixed PS (not as a profession but as a hobby) I am trying to get used to the MAC so I can help my wife. As I have an IPOD and an 4S I-Phone. Now you know the whole story. Sorry to bore you with the details but I was sure it would help you give me a better Idea of where to go to correct the AIM situation.
OK when I go to the ME.com account there is no where where I see Caller ID???
What I see is My wifes e-mail a Bonjour ( imactive) account, & Yahoo account. I may be in the wrong place
Toi be frank I don't see an Imessages account. Under mail accounts I see My wifes 5 e-mail accounts and one of them is a .ME account ( I assume that is the icloud account) but where it says account type it says AIM how do I change it to an I Cloun account?
OK the next question when you say click on the DOCK I go to system preferences and click on DOC and I get some screen that shows SIZE, Magnification Position on screen and so on.
When I go to the Finder and click on Applications I get a window that says messages but there is nothing on that window that I can adjust?
Help Where is i messages
