normally MetaContacts should store it in every Subcontact (the one who received the message or with whom the message was sent over) + in his MetaContact... but after all these MetaContacts related changes, I'm not sure how it is now.. Hope it's still that way :P (or somehow only store on Subs, but show from all... so only 1 copy exists..)

History is stored only once - to subcontacts. This way, when you split contact from metacontact you'll still have correct history for all contacts.

Clist_modern:
Options->Contact list->Additional stuff->Use 'Meta' protocol icons for metacontacts

Or if you've meant "real" extra icons, the best you can get is:
Contact list->Extra icons->Account (shows meta icon for meta, other protocol icon for others..)

Also there are new options for communication window (at least TabSRMM), in Options / Message sessions / Advanced tweaks / "Display metacontact icons".

I have a question about this.

What if I have a metacontact composed of Skype (and some other protocol).

Now assume I move away from Skype and disable the plugin (after all, you will be removing it from repository soon, right?). What happens then? I was not really able to add new metacontacts with skype protocols and/or any other "dead" protocols (like msn).

So my question is... how to create and maintain a metacontact whereby one of the subcontacts is from a "dead" protocol? Because it sort of feels like you can't; which somewhat defeats the purpose.

If there is a way to sort of... merge all of the chat history of a contact from a different protocol into the current one (other than metacontacts), I wouldn't mind doing that too.

Any input? :o

As I understand it - MetaContact is just wrapper around 2 or more contacts. If delete some subcontact, history is obviously lost. I just tried disabling account of one sub and you can still read history through main metacontact. IMO it's not good to have here these ghosts, but it looks it works.

well... the original metacontact allowed this.. it kept it's own history... but guess currently the best way might be to disable the account..

Thus wasn't meata-contact at all, it was a real contact with merged history.

evidently you're wrong. when metacontacts are enabled, all subs' history is gathered inside metacontact, though the original contactid gets stored inside each event (that allows the core to split metahistory correctly when a sub gets untied from a meta). but a sub has no its own history at all, thus all its history remains untouched when you delete a sub as a contact. its history remains forever inside a meta, and would be deleted only with it
