Set custom auto-away messages and timeout in iChat
Authored by: rlinsurf on Mar 08, '06 12:27:37AM

Um. Open the iChat Buddy Window. Select the Status (e.g. "Away") Popup Menu. Select Custom under Away. This opens a field where you can type any message you like. Or you could choose Edit Status Menu from the bottom of the Status Popup to add as many custom Away (or Available) messages as you like, so they all appear under that menu in the future for easy access.

Go to Preferences-->General. Check the Auto-Reply with my Away Message checkbox.

Done.

This will enable a default auto-away replay, yes. However, when you automatically go away after a certain period of time, iChat will set your status to a generic "Away," not to any of your custom away messages. This allows you to set your auto-away message, not your auto-reply message.
