Gaim: Auto-respond?

I know AIM has an option for auto-respond with away messages. I want to do that with Gaim but I can't figure out how. The online documentation isn't very helpful in that respect, and google just shows old crap that doesn't apply. How can I turn on some type of auto-respond (with away/idle messages)???

I'll have to check to see if I have the lastest version when I get home. You might be right. I'll have someone else IM me when I'm away to see if it shows up.

 

EDIT: downloaded and installed 1.2.1 and it still doesn't auto-respond when I message myself. Nobody else is online right now, so I can't try that.

it wont auto-respond _after_ you message that person... so you msging yourself is not going to tell you if it works or not

Well, I had someone else IM me while I was away and it didn't do it. Is that a useless/dead option?

 

Clarification: I put up an away message and then they IMed me.

well, I left my computer for 10-15 minutes and it did do the auto-reply thing. but I don't know if it was because I was idle or because I was away... oh well, at least it works. thanks.
