Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

This is something that hasn't even been implemented in Pidgin. It's very simple compared to how complex it might sound. Simply keep the current system for a universal status across all accounts, but add an option per-account to ser a different status from the "main" one.

Changed in empathy (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
summary: - Allow different status' for different accounts
+ Add option to override system status for each account

This is the one crucial feature keeping from using Empathy. It is necessary to be able to set a different status and status message for each account.

I.E. -

My "Play" account status is - "I'm not here."
My "Work" account status is - "I'm not here, call 555-555-5555 if you need me, back @ 1700h"

This is a critical feature for users who work remotely and have active mobile work and social routines.

Pidgin has the capability of setting different status messages for each account.
