Some very late quickstart updates: ICQ supports server-side contact lists
for ages already and private is set to true by default for quite some time
as well.

    63 For most protocols (currently MSN, Jabber, Yahoo and AOL) BitlBee can download the contact list automatically from the IM server and all the on-line users should appear in the control channel when you log in.
     63Now BitlBee logs in and downloads the contact list from the IM server. In a few seconds, all your on-line buddies should show up in the control channel.

    67 BitlBee will convert names into irc-friendly form (for instance: tux@example.com will be given the nickname tux). If you have more than one person who would have the same name by this logic (for instance: tux@example.com and tux@bitlbee.org) the second one to log on will be tux_. The same is true if you have a tux log on to AOL and a tux log on from Yahoo.

    133 If you'd rather chat with them in a separate window use the <emphasis>/msg</emphasis> or <emphasis>/query</emphasis> command, just like you would for a private message in IRC.  If you want to have messages automatically come up in private messages rather than in the &amp;bitlbee channel, use the <emphasis>set private</emphasis> command: <emphasis>set private true</emphasis> (<emphasis>set private false</emphasis> to change back).
     133Note that, although all contacts are in the &amp;bitlbee channel, only tux will actually receive this message. The &amp;bitlbee channel shouldn't be confused with a real IRC channel.

     137If you prefer chatting in a separate window, use the <emphasis>/msg</emphasis> or <emphasis>/query</emphasis> command, just like on real IRC. BitlBee will remember how you talk to someone and show his/her responses the same way. If you want to change the default behaviour (for people you haven't talked to yet), see <emphasis>help set private</emphasis>.
