Fix 1: Remove Keychain Entries

  3. From the list of keychains on the left side of the window select Login.
  4. Select All items under category list.
  5. Search for entries of IDS and delete all entries that have IDS.
  6. Search for entries of FaceTime and delete all entries of FaceTime.

Fix 2: Reset NVRAM/PRAM

  2. Press the Power Button to turn on your Mac.
  3. Then immediately press and hold the Option + Command + P + R keys simultaneously as quickly as possible after pressing the Power Button.
  4. Keep pressing until you hear the startup sound for the second time.

Fix 3: Sign Out and then Sign in iMessage Account

  1. Launch Messages app on your macOS High Sierra.
  2. Then tap on Preferences.
  3. Next, select Accounts tab.
  4. Now select your iMessage Account (on the sidebar)
  5. Uncheck Enable this account
  6. Click Sign Out.
  7. Again sign back in your iMessage account.

Fix 4: Check for iMessage Service
Check whether if iMessage service is working or not. If it doesn’t work then the issue happens because of poor iMessage server. To verify that you can check the Apple’s system status page
Other Solutions:

  • Make sure that you have set up iMessage correctly.
  • Make sure that you have speed and good internet connection.
  • Restore your macOS High Sierra.
