     441                                To mark yourself as away, it is recommended to just use <emphasis>/away</emphasis>, like on normal IRC networks. If you want to mark yourself as away on only one IM network, you can use this per-account setting.

     445                                You can set it to any value and BitlBee will try to map it to the most appropriate away state for every open IM connection, or set it as a free-form away message where possible.

     449                                Any per-account away setting will override globally set away states. To un-set the setting, use <emphasis>set -del away</emphasis>.

     768                                Certain protocols (like Jabber/XMPP) support status messages, similar to away messages. They can be used to indicate things like your location or activity, without showing up as away/busy.

     772                                This setting can be used to set such a message. It will be available as a per-account setting for protocols that support it, and also as a global setting (which will then automatically be used for all protocols that support it).

    88 As you might've expected, you can just use the <emphasis>/away</emphasis> command in your IRC client to set an away-state. BitlBee supports most away-states supported by the protocols.

    92 Not all away states are supported by all protocols, and some protocols have different names for them. BitlBee will try to pick the best available alias from this list for every connection:
