    When I installed it, I got some old voicemails from others sent to my email account. Strange as it may sound, does anyone have the same experience?

    brill finally no reason for me not to recommend a mac. before it was always well you can do this, that and this but oh no you can use im with video and voice. Well now you can.

    No iChat has never been something i can recommend it uses AIM witch has America in the title and scares of a lot of Europeans and Asians.

    Yep... I too upgraded it yesterday. As soon as I signed-up into my upgraded YM!, I got few old voicemails from yahoo! :mad: it's strange.

    Also I failed to do voice chat with one of my PC friend. It is not allowed any voice communication between my PC friend and me though we have perfect setup (headphone, mic). :(
