iChat recieving messages Error

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Just transfered my files, account etc onto a new MacBook Pro from an old G4 Mac Mini.

Come across a problem with iChat. The bonjour side of it.

If someone else in the office tries to message me they get the error "This computer is not reachable"

But if i start the conversation, everything works fine. I have tried deleting ichat preferences in Library/preferences but i still encounter the same problem.

Something else to note is that i tried using adium, and i get the same problem, so maybe its not directly ichat related?

    Is your new machine named the same as the old one?

    I think so, but does it matter?

    My old machine has been formatted and is not in my posession now

    It sounds like the other machine has cached your machine name which is no longer on the network. On which machine did you delete the preferences? Your's or the other one?
