    okay so i decided to try adium... and when i had an msn contact i had it so it would be added to the "individuals" area, but every time i re-login it goes back to the buddies area, why? and when i go to get rid of the individuals tab... it says there is 1 person there, and yet there isn't... :confused:

    I keep getting an MSN error saying it isn't available yet it always logs on. Adium is starting to annoy me a lot.

    got a question for all those adium users out there...

    can adium display custom msn screen names? for example say you have a buddy on your msn buddy list who's sn is thisisanexample@hotmail.com however when they logon via msn they have uberleetor something as the display name...

    does adium show the uberleet or the thisisanexample@hotmail.com when they logon?

    You choose which you'd prefer. Just go to:

    View => Contact Name Format => and choose which you're prefer. :)

    FWIW, with the classification in groups issue, I have always had the same issue with Adium. My contacts organized-by-groups list is such a mess that I wish I could just

    here is my problem with adium, i like it except for this thing and it bugs the hell out of me.

    i like to keep invisible so i can pick and choose who i want to chat with. i keep it on invisible but whenever i log in it notifies people that i have logged on even though it shows me invisible. that defeats the whole purpose. is there anyway to have it quit notifying people that i have logged on?

    thanks!
