My Adium (which I just deleted, redownloaded and reinstalled) has gone mad. My chats are seen as normal on my side, but to the other person, the markup is all seen. So this is what the other person sees:

<im:html xmlns:im=''><xht:body xmlns:xht=''><xht:p><xht:span style='font-family: Lucida Grande; font-size: large;'>new adium. same result?</xht:span></xht:p></xht:body></im:html>

What should I do? I haven't changed my Adium options ever.

@grawity I know it looks the same, but it might not be. I'm not pasting or changing fonts or anything. – Dan Rosenstark Aug 18 '11 at 22:52

This is a known issue in Adium that arose in the last day or so. I believe it was caused by something having changed on Google's side.

Judging by the amount of activity on that Trac ticket, I bet this bug will get fixed soon.

Thanks @sbleon, let's hope so. – Dan Rosenstark Aug 19 '11 at 18:01
Updating the sending client to the latest Adium beta resolved the problem. – Dan Rosenstark Aug 24 '11 at 13:26
