    Hi,

    Could someone point me in the direction of a tut on how to get ichat set up, please? Do have to pay to get an @mac.com ichat name? Do I need an @mac.com name to chat with someone who *does* have a @mac.com name?

    Thanks,

    NoBob.

    Thanks. I have a gmail account, so can use that, but can I speak to someone with an @mac.com username? or only @gmail.com users?

    If you want the @mac email address you have to pay for it.

    It is part of .Mac and costs around $130 a year. This gives you:
    - Email address @mac.com
    - 1GB of iDisk Storage (basically an FTP)
    - Easy synchronization of iPhoto, iWeb etc to your iDisk

    Only downside is once your year is up, unless you renew quickly it's bye bye @mac email.

    I have one and its great - just need to make sure I renew in time.
