Fixing iChat in MAC OS X if it cannot find the server for chat anymore

February 26, 2013

First off, iChat is a MAC OS X application for IM chatting. It is a semi multi application hub similar to Pigin or other IM hub applications.

The easiest two chatting platforms that it supports are AIM and Gmail.

To setup iChat is real easy for AIM and Gmail accounts. You just input your account information, email and password and it runs it.

If you were trying for another platform and it didn’t work, and now you want to apply it back to Gmail or AIM but it’s telling you the certificate is out of date,

Simply open iChat and Click iChat and Click Preferences. Go to Accounts. Use this account, check that. Always log in with this account, Check it.

Automatically discover server and port. server name is going to be talk.google.com
