    Does anyone have any clue on how to do this? I have noticed in iChat you can have iChat run an Apple Script at login. I'm just a new programmer so I don't really have a clue how to do this? Can anyone make a script?

    I don't think it's possible (From reading the jabber tutorials) although if you link the account with one of your address book cards, you'll end up with the name from the address book card showing up rather than the messy email address.
