    Does anyoneh here use POP messaging with your macs?

    What app would I need? and

    How should I configures it? (i hope there are step-by-step guides)

    We're using POP messaging a lot here in the office as our phone lines are always busy with calls. It helps us get things done twice as fast. Unfortunately for me, I get to do that only when im using someone else's winbox. I still cant join them using my (personal) mac, although, Im already connected to the network, e-mail, and internet. Is iChat good for POP messaging? sana pwede.

    You may want to check out SnapTalk. It goes with 2 other "snap" applications to form a mini-suite. Just install, and you're good to go. No configuration required. As long as the computers are in a network, it will recognize each other. And yeah, SnapTalk is bi-platform -- will work in mixed environment.

    Sorry, What i meant was: Without any 3rd party applications, is there a way that you can send a message to other macs and windows pcs within the same network? -- ex. office environment or house.

    Thanks!
