How do you get a blank message box to send a "new" message to someone not on the list.
Until now, I did not know that was possible with any IM service

all the offlines and try to find their name on there to click on it. On pidgin you could open a new box,
type the first 2 letters and the rest of the name would show up - which is much much easier.
Hmm...I dunno 'bout Yahoo as I don't use it that much (not many contacts and either offline or also on IRC, which I prefer waaaaaaay over any IM), but offline sending is something I never got to work with the msn-protocol.
Jabber supports it though.

Oh it will, I should have been clearer on that.
Pidgin is 'written for' Gnome, Kopete is 'written for' KDE, maybe Wolfden can take over and explain that to you
(Sure you can Wolfden, try to be as nice here once as you always are on FB
After updating (you should know that process by heart now
I know all the previously helpful messages above, lol
things like that.
*chokes in sm0ke*
you could do 'equo search pidgin', see what comes up.
Kopete will be fine if I can figure it out, for example how to open a new messages,
and most of all how to connect to Yahoo in the first place. Any suggestions about that? Thanks.
Hmm...I dunno what the problem could be here, first of all you're using KDE4.x now, I'm still on good old 3.5 and I don't know much (or anything) about the 'KDE4-version' of Kopete, and all three protocols I use (msn for those left behind in the Stone Age, yahoo for the odd American
and Jabber, because I can
) connect through Kopete (all in one single little screen) without a problem, so I wouldn't know where things could be / have gone wrong in your case.
Then again, I think that's a question you may get a much quicker response to if you ask it on the KDE forum, as Kopete is sorta part of KDE (sorry, dunno how to explain this in a way that both makes sense and is technically correct)...
