    Ok so I want to use my .mac account on iChat. I have an aim account for my pc but i want a seperate account to use on my mbp. basically, i want to see if there is an easy way to get all of my aim contacts onto the .mac buddy list. i would rather not manually add 200 or so people :(

    is this possible? ive searched and the only thing i seem to come up with is how to import the contacts into another aim account.

    you can on leopard, i suppose thats not all too much help, but if you give me log in for the accounts i can move them all over in a flash, you can have multiple accounts of any type and just drag the list accross.

    nevermind, i figured out how to do it. but thank you for the offer! i knew you could log into aim through ichat, but i didnt know you could log into .mac through aim. i just exported my aim list, logged into my .mac account through aim, imported the list, and then went into ichat and its all there =D
