I created a jabber account at earth.li for use with Apple's iChat IM
client. Traditionally, iChat used only the AIM service, but in OS X
10.4 you can now use jabber accounts too. I decided it would be nice
to talk to my MSN and iChat buddies in the same app.
These are the instructions I followed if anyone else is interested:
I had it all working fine until a week or two ago, but now when I try
to use the jabber.earth.li server, it warns me that my password is
being sent in the clear. When I dismiss the warning, it asks me to
enter my password, which I do. It then warns me again about my
password being in the clear. The loop is endless.
Does anyone know why this started happening?
