    When i first got adium and logged in my name was 'matthew beech', my full name. I changed it to 'matt' but my friends says it still shows as 'matthew beech'. Anyone know how I can change it?

    cheers

    Adium>Preferences>Account>Click your account and change it. Have you tried that?

    I'm also wondering this, I see your instruction.. But to be honest, I have no clue how to find the preferences..haha..

    You see, I'm a very new mac-owner :p

    If anyone reading this, how about a beginner explanation to find preferences to account for adium?:)

    Here's how to change your username ... (Also, it's because Adium can handle several different accounts at once that you can't change it the way you would expect to).

    Go to File in the menu bar>Scroll down to the account you want to change>Highlight it and click on Edit Account>Click on the 'Personal' tab and you can edit your nick/photo etc.

    Hope that helps ;)
