    Hi there

    Yesterday something really strange happened. All my iChat buddies disappeared (went offline at the same time) and since then they're all offline when i go onto iChat (via AIM).

    Now i tried to change the server port settings to 443 but that didn't do anything.

    Then I read the exact same issue here: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=6670971

    I did all those steps and deleted the plist files to reset it and also force quit the agent and repeated the deletion again but it still doesn't work.

    What's going on? Neither changing server settings nor deletion of the old plist files did anything.

    What else can I do?

    Have you tried manually deleting a buddy and adding them back?

    Have you tried to access them through Adium?

    Just throwing out some suggestions :)

    I don't think re-adding manually again is gonna change anything. I see the buddies greyed out, just shows them as offline. Really don't understand.

    Adium, well i wanna use iChat not Adium. Just because of this issue i can't suddenly give up expecting iChat to run the way it should.

    Any more tips/ suggestions greatly apperciated.

    Any other people with this issue?

    Anybody know if AOL is fixing it?

    Last i heard was it might be happening because of the whole iPhone Push thingy but not sure.
