Got a question about iMessage status. I'm able to initiate a new message inside the app. However, I'm not receiving new conversations from others unless I initiate the conversation first. I noticed that on the menu bar there is a dim message icon. When I right click it status menu appears. On top it says I'm offline. Even when I'm in a conversation that I initiated. Same goes for the icon in the dock. I try to select online status on both dock and menu bar icons. Nothing happens. Status remains offline. I'm familiar with iMessage on iOS. If I have a problem I go to settings. But I don't see a setting under preferences in OSX for messages. I'd think there would be a place to manage your iMessage account. What am I missing?
