Can't log onto iChat

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since I upgraded to Lion I can't use iChat on my 2.2ghz i7 MacBook Pro. Simply won't log on. Tried deleting the account and adding it again but nothing. It's a Mac.com account.

It works ok on my Mini.

I'm up to date with 10.7.2

What chat service allows an @mac.com e-mail address?

The one I've been using for the last 8 years. When setting up my account, I select the .mac option from the list that includes AIM and Yahoo/Google.

Huh. Really?

I guess it makes sense that iChat would allow that. Oh, but that also might be your problem. .Mac is dead, MobileMe is dead; Apple could be cutting that off.

iChat does cut in and out sometimes, though. Leave it alone for a few days and then see if you can log in again.

It still works fine in my Mini. But I haven't been able to use it on my MBP since I installed Lion months ago.
