    There is something I don't undertand about iChat and I'm looking for help with it. Whenever my girlfriend or a friend of mine wants to use iChat and go on their own screenname they simply add their AIM information into iChat and sign on. However, whenever they IM someone it says my name "Jason Stevens" instead of their screenname. In addition, it changes their icon from whatever they set to the one I use on my iChat account and on my mac. How can I fix it so that they keep their screennames and their original icons? Thanks.

    Beautiful Vancouver British Columbia, Canada
    I too would like to know this..

    Right now, if my G friend wants to use IM, she uses Adium, so we have iChat and Adium open,

    iChat for me, Adium for her, both logged in with our seperate info.

    Not the best solution.
