    You can re-install iChat from your Mac's Tiger installation disks. You will need to find the package that contains it (I don't have a disk with me, anyone else able to help with the location?), then extract the iChat program and drag it back to your Applications folder. Use a program named Pacifist to extract the iChat files.

    Remember though that the version on your installation disk will be older than the one 10.4.6 needs. Download the OSX 10.4.6 combo updater from Apple and run it again. This will update the iChat you've installed to the correct version.

    BTW, if you have an Intel Mac, you will need the 10.4.6 Combo updater from here. For PowerPC, use the link above :)

    Remember that the version of iChat must match the version of QuickTime installed, and that the poster has not specified which architecture they are on yet. The version you have may not work on the OP's computer.

    I will, I just did.

    EDIT: I just realized that you are running 10.4 and I'm running leopard. It might not work.

    Follow my instructions on this thread about how to get back photobooth. Just substitute photobooth for ichat

    NOTE: ichat may be in a different place than what i said for photobooth but if you just search for it in the search bar that shouldn't be a problem

    Just FYI, posting your email publicly is never a good idea
    You would be better off sending a PM with your email as suggested above
