    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 however when they logon via msn they have uberleetor something as the display name...

    does adium show the uberleet or the when they logon?

    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?
