Is it possible to configure Yahoo Messenger on iChat? There are options in iChat to configure Google talk, yahoo messenger, AOL etc. So far I know it is possible to configure Google talk. But I did not get any document or evidence to configure Yahoo Messenger. I do not know why? Is it possible to fix this problem??? I am talking about Mac OS X Lion.
You will need to sign up for a Yahoo! account by going here.
Once you have done that, you can configure Yahoo Messenger in iChat by doing the following:
- Open iChat
- Open iChat Preferences by going to the menu item iChat > Preferences or by hitting ⌘ + , on your keyboard
- Go to Accounts
- Click the + button
- Select "Yahoo" from the drop down menu under Account Type:
- Authenticate using your Yahoo account credentials
- Enjoy using iChat with Yahoo.
This method works for text chat. iChat claims to support video and SMS via Yahoo, but used the method above to configure Yahoo, and I got no option for video chat. Any more ideas?
