Hi, I haven't been able to try out Bitcoin yet as I have an old PPC Macintosh, so I'm out of luck for now.

Reading through the threads, I got the impression that there is no way to have a message field when sending to bitcoin addresses as opposed to IPs? If that is the case, how is everyone managing transactions through their websites that access the API?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

The best practice is to generate a new address for each transaction. That's safer than sending to an IP and there's no message field to be misspelled.
