10.7: Find iMessage capable numbers and e-mail addresses Apps
Using Apple's new app Messages beta you can discover who you can send Messages to.

In Messages, press Cmd+N to open a blank message window. In the 'To:' field, which is highlighted by default, begin typing a name. A list will appear showing all the possible completions. Once you have typed one unique name, the list will show all the addresses known for that person, and will put a blue chat bubble next to any item that you can send a Message to. This works for both e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

[crarko adds: I don't have the beta handy so I haven't tested this one.]

You run a website specifically for Mac hints and you can't be bothered with the free, downloadable beta?!?

While true, this is no hint at all. It works just like Messages on iPhone and iPad.

Messages beta on the Mac doesn't work as well as it does in iOS 5. It doesn't always, or even highlight iMessage users in your contacts list competently. Beta is as beta does.
