    Need help with Trillian.

    I've just downloaded and installed the latest version. I just want to know how to configure it so that messages I receive when I'm away or while I'm gaming will stay someplace obvious. I know I received the messages, as they're available via logfiles, but I want them to be in their normal window on my desktop somewhere so that I notice them!

    I've already done that. That doesn't keep a message window up...

    Re: Need help with Trillian.

    When someone does send you a message, what does Trillian .. do?

    Does it just not show the message? I'm a little confused.

    I have my Trillian settings to pretty much default and it opens messages I get while I'm away in one window. It stays there too until I close it.

    Well, whenever I've been there to receive the message (websurfing, checking email, etc...) a chat window pops up. When I'm playing CS, I have no idea what it does. I hear the IM sounds, but when I close CS to look, there are no windows open.

    Nope, nothing but a new entry in my message log.

    I just unchecked the "group message windows" and the "show messages minimized in taskbar" options. We'll see if that does the trick.

    Re: Need help with Trillian.

    If that doesn't work...

    Is it pro or basic?

    If it's pro (not sure if settings are same for basic) go to:

    preferences>message windows> and make sure that "Close the window automatically after untouched for 30 minutes" box is unchecked
