XMPP. I can try the Hangouts plugin…if it would echo entire conversations into Pidgin, that would be great (I lose my replies from my phone currently).


They just show as Offline.

Hi there,


Just to check, are you using GTalk (XMPP) that's built-in to Pidgin or the Hangouts plugin?


Also, are the buddies that are offline showing as "Not Authorized" when you display offline buddies in the buddy list?

One of my GMail correspondents has started showing offline, even tho she’s online. I deleted and re-added, and it was OK for a while. A bunch of Googling suggests this has happened before, but my search fu did not find anything useful. Ideas?
