    Does ichat let you communication with people on windows?
    Also my MBP tries to logon using my gmail email address but when i type in my gmail password it doesn't work and says its wrong?
    So I havent even managed to logon.
    Its really confusing.

    MSN on mac isn't good either, no video chat option.
    So now I've downloaded Skype 2.7 for mac and trying to get some of my friends to join Skype.

    1) Proof read your posts next time buddy
    2) Yes iChat can send instant messages to people using windows machines. All that iChat does is manage different instant messaging services, and those services are not mac only
    3)If I read your post correctly, you are trying to use gmail instant messanger with iChat. I do not think iChat is compatible with gmail. Try using adiumx (it does not have video chat though)
