Here's what I am trying to do. I want for all text (except screen/handle names) to appear in a certain color (lime green as I am a Matirx fax) but I do not want the lime green to be sent to people I IM. Instead I want for black to be sent.
Under "Preferences" --> "Font" I have "ForeGround Color" set to the shade of green I want. And I have "Send w/ Message" deselected. But in this case BLACK text is sent to the user I IM AND to my IM window.
However, if I select the "Send w/ Message" checbkox then the shade of green I want is sent to the user I IM but does appear in my IM window.
