Messages & Facetime
I’m running 10.9.2 on both my home and work iMacs. I got Messages to work on my work computer and both my iPad / iPhone. They all sync just fine. The issue is my home iMac. When I launch Messages I get the top menu but almost all the items in the drop downs are grayed out. I can’t even open the preferences or add an account. With FaceTime, I login with my Apple ID as instructed but when i gets the verification I get ‘Server encountered error, try again…”.
Am I doing something wrong? I’m totally stumped at the moment and I’m sure it’s silly thing I’m overlooking. Any help would be appreciated.
iMac (HOME): late 2007 / 4 GB / 1 TB / running 10.9.2
iMac (WORK): late 2013 / 32GB / 3 TB / running 10.9.2
First I would try deleting com.apple.ichat.plist
Second would be to reset your Keychain. CAUTION: THIS WILL DELETE ALL OF YOUR STORED PASSWORDS.
