    I don't know how to explain what that text is called. On the Microsoft Messenger client, it will show text beside the person's MSN name... 'personal text' I think it's called.

    Is there a way to show this in Adium?

    I think this is what you're looking for:

    preferences -> advanced -> msn -> check off "show display names as status messages"

    No, he's looking for Personal Messages (called status messages on every single other protocol, but noooo... MSN has to be "special"). It won't be implemented in Adium until the Pidgin team finishes updating MSN support to the latest version of the protocol.

    I understand if what you want is one app that you can use to chat through many different networks (err can't think of the proper word now, but GoogleTalk, Yahoo etc.) but sine A LOT of my friends are on MSN I find aMSN great (Personal Messages and a whole lot more). Just a suggestion.
