Using with Apple iChat

Greetings all,

I created a jabber account at 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 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?
