1) Open imov Messenger.
2) On the Login screen, enter 'talk.google.com' as in the 'Servername:' field. Enter your full Gmail email address in the 'Username:' field (including '@gmail.com').
3) Click the 'Setup' button and on the next dialog box click the 'Advanced...' button.
4) Check the 'Encrypt sessions' checkbox and click OK to dismiss the Advanced Setup dialog box. Click OK again to dismiss the Setup dialog box.
5) Click the 'Connect' button on the Login Screen to connect to the Google server.
