			<p>If the contact is offline, the behavior depends on the instant messaging service you are using. In AIM/ICQ and XMPP ("Jabber") the message is sent to the server and will be immediately received by the contact when next she signs online. On other services, Adium will give you the option to "Send Later". This will send the message the next time you are online with Adium and the contact is also online.</p>
