Adding a Buddy

Before you can send instant messages to other people, they need to be in your Buddy list. Your Buddy list shows you who's currently online and offline, their audio and video capabilities, and if they are available for chatting. You can add a person who has a screen name from a .Mac account or AIM to your Buddy list. You can add as many buddies as you like to your Buddies list. You can add them from your Address Book or type new ones. When you add a new person to your Buddy list, a new card is added to your Address Book. Your Buddy list is stored on an instant message server, so you can log in to your account from any computer and see if your buddies are online.

Add a Buddy

If necessary, click the Window menu, and then click Buddy List to display the Buddy List window.

Click the Add New Buddy button (+) in the Buddy List window.

Use one of the following methods:

  • Select from Address Book. Select a name from your Address Book, and then click Select Buddy.

  • Create New. Click New Person, select an account, type the screen name for the person, and then click Add.

TIMESAVER If your buddy uses more than one screen name, you can type more than one by separating each with a comma.

TROUBLE? If your Buddy list is empty, click the View menu, and then click Show Offline Buddies to show all buddies, regardless of availability.
