    Sounds like your OS isn't supported.

    As regardss to the iChat and iChat Sharing categorisation you have used.

    In iChat 6 (lion) and Messages (Mountain Lion) the apps login to AIM and to Me.com


    The Login to Me.com allows AIM to verify the password to the iCloud issued names (@me.com and @iCloud.com)


    This "Dual" login also prevents the newer iCloud issued name from using this site

    (it has extra Privacy settings that iChat can't access for your AIM and Aim valid Accounts)


    Ignoring the @mac.com and MobileMe entries in the Add Account Screen in iChat and using the AIM one does not get around this issue.

    AIM and @mac.com names still work in older versions of iChat.


    The short answer is that iCloud issued Apple IDs do not work in iChat 5 or Earlier.

    MobileMe is gone, and you need to be running Lion or Mountain Lion on your desktop for iCloud to work.
