    I've installed Mountain Lion, and Messages doesn't seem to do anything. I receive messages on my iPhone, but nothing shows up in my Messages window. I've set up the iPhone Messages to send to two devices (phone and email), and logged in to my email account on Messages. Also allowed full access on Little Snitch. Anything else that I'm missing?

    You're sure you've logged in with your Apple ID?

    Yes. It's the same ID that I use for App Store and iMessages on the iPhone. I minimize the Messages window, send a message from a different iPhone to my own iPhone, and while the message shows up on the phone, it doesn't on the laptop.
