    I don't use iChat much, but I've had a friend using it on my computer. Now when I open it, it signs into Rendezvous using his name. How do I change it? I've looked through all the menus but can't figure out how to change it back to my name.

    I just looked in the Accounts pane in System Preferences, and I'm the only user in there (with my name set correctly), so that's obviously not where iChat's getting the name from. Any other ideas?

    It sort of makes sense though - the name shown in iChat is the same name as an account he created on my system. I've since deleted that account, but iChat still connects with that account name.

    Thanks, that worked :)

    The funny thing is that it all seemed to be correct, but I re-saved it and it's working now.
