Summary: Auto Message Forwarding

Initial Comment:
Something that I feel would be nice to have is an auto
forwarding system ... the idea is sort of along the
lines of the "away" system and could work with the away
system.  The user would have the ability to set
forwarding on/off ... if forwarding is on then any
message that is sent to the user would be forwarded to
either an email address, another IM name OR an SMS
(phone message).  There are times where I am in the
office but not at my desk ... I always carry my phone
around so it would be great to be able to receive SMS
messages on my phone containing any IMs people have
sent me.  Then if it get one that is very important
then I know I need to get back to my desk to address
it.   The user could also turn the away system on at
the same time which would tell the person IMing them
that they are away but their message has been forwarded
to their phone.

I guess this could be a plugin.  

Just a thought ... I think it would be very handy =)

I would like to see the forward to email feature
implemented.  The reason is that my cell phone provider
provides an email address that is in reality a way to send a
text message to my phone.  So this would have some use
outside of just email.

Also, someone has already implemented forwarding to another
account, although it is very old now.  Check out item 579799
for more details.

A friend and I are working on a plugin which will do at
least the forwarding to another screen name. It should be
fairly configurable. There will be a tab under the 'plugins'
menu in 'Preferences' to configure the plugin.  The email
idea is good too, tho not sure how many people want tons of
email in their inboxes of one line IM's...maybe set a timer
to send whatever is in the IM window after x minutes of the
conversation originating.
