    Once the Apple ID have been "registered" and is listed in the iMessages account pane in the Messages Preferences it should not need to be entered again.


    However there is a sort of "known issue" with Messages reaching version 7.0.1 with the OS X 10.8.2 update that needs the Mac's Serial Number to be present (It is normally read in System Information or in the About this Mac pane (click the current OS line twice).
