#5928 new enhancement

when waking up as away, dont autoresponde to offline messages received

Reported by: dave1g Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Patches welcome Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.2 Keywords: offline message auto reply


Pidgin will sometimes connect in the away state if you have chosen for it to do so.

When signing on, all the previous messages sent to you offline are then shown ( although pidgin doesn't tag them as such), and then pidgin attempts to auto respond with an away message to the senders of the offline messages. Specifically this is with AIM as that is mostly what I use, but it might affect others.

I think the official client is able to notice an offline message versus a regular one, but i don't know if it auto-responds when away. since I have used pidgin exclusively for quite a while now.

Received offline messages should be marked in some way as being offline, and pidgin shouldn't auto respond

I guess this is partially related to #2994 which I just not happened across.

Given #2994 was closed as a Won't Fix...should this fall the same way?

  • Component changed from AIM to pidgin (gtk)
  • Keywords aim away removed
  • Milestone set to Patches welcome
  • Owner changed from MarkDoliner to deryni

No, #2994 is the other side of this "issue". #2994 was asking for better conversation window marking of offline messages, this ticket is asking that pidgin not auto-reply to offline messages.

Moving to Patches Welcome.
