How do I send instant messages to offline buddies with AIM?

You can only send offline IMs to buddies who have the offline messaging feature enabled. For more information on enabling offline IMs, see Send or receive offline IMs using the AIM software.

Here's how to send an offline message:

1. On your Buddy List window, scroll down to your offline buddies group, and then double-click a Username.




2. In the IM window, type a message for your buddy in the text box, and then click Send.




Your buddy will receive the IM once he/she signs back into AIM.
