    Many people have trouble with consistency of file transfers in Adium, unfortunately. :( Have you tried iChat AV?

    But also, isn't IM file transfer awful slow for your purpose? Have you considered using a web-based file storage site and sharing an account with your friend, or hosting the files on a webserver? It would seem much better.... If you're using a desktop, even enabling it as an FTP server....

    Im his friend and I too have switched over to Adium. I think the problem is that we dont have certain ports open that need to be open, because we both have our firewalls enabled.
