Message History and Logs

Adium's storage of past messages consists of two components: full chat logs and most recent messages in the chat window, called message history.

How do I view my chat logs?

There are three methods to opening up the chat logs window:

  1. Choose "Chat Transcript Viewer" in the Window menu.
  2. Click the Clock icon in the chat window's toolbar.
  3. Select a contact from the Contact list, then choose "View Chat Transcripts" in the Contact menu.

How do I disable chat logging?

  • Open the Preferences pane from the Adium menu.
  • Uncheck "Log messages" under the General tab.
