As it says at the bottom of the page not all the @mac.cam names are current emails addresses as they may be trial @mac accounts that work in iChat only after the 60days.
Chrisbel, as he posts here, does have a valid iChat account of that name listed. However as the individual note says he is not always on-line.
I have no other French contacts myself.
You could also try a search for "France" in the discussion area to see if you can reach anybody that way.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 28, 2006 11:56 AM (in response to Ralph Johns (UK))Hi Ralph, thanks for replying. Actually I emailed 'Chrisbel@mac.com' thinking 'mac.cam' was a spelling error. Is it actually mac.cam? Thanks for your other suggestion which I will do. I did search for Free+France earlier, only one item found but not relevant. I'm deep into the Free terms and conditions at the moment, dictionary to hand!

That is a typo. I will change this as soon as I can.
Edit. Should be done now

Currently Being ModeratedMay 29, 2006 9:53 AM (in response to Bob Taylor1)I am, of course, not using Free, since I'm not in France. However, my sister does use it (she forwards everything to her current residence in China, unless she's at home in France for holidays). She uses Windows, and she and I can AV chat quite successfully.
That's the good news. The bad news is that customer service is so bad that she's going to change ISPs as soon as she moves back to France permanently. She is allowed to contact them via email once -- and once only -- until they've answered that email (with a canned message, more often than not), and it usually takes them at least a week to get back to her. So, when she has a problem, it gets very frustrating. Right now they seem to be blocking everything to and from China, so she's having to switch her email to GMail and hope for the best.
You may not have the same problems, since you're not in China. As I said, the AV chats are quite successful. 14" iBook G3 800Mhz 640MB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.6), Airport Extreme, iSight, 5G iPod
