It depends on several factors.
Which version of iChat you have.
Whether you have it set to Log Out when Quit.
To a certain extent what you have it set to do for Fast User Switching plays a small part.
iChat 3 can receive Off Line Messages when it is Launched but can not send them.
iChat 4 can be set not to allow Off Line messaging.

It's one of the things it does by default and you can only change it by replying to the message from the AIM System message that should pop up with the first one of the Day (If you were Off line through the computer sleeping or being shut down).
However if you have the AIM system message ID (aolsystemmsg) blocked then you will not get the pop up message.

It now appears the messges were being received, but... when you send more than one iChat to someone who isn't at their desk checking, the window will only show the first message. Have now realised that they were clicking on the window, which maximises to include all messages received.
Is there a way to make iChat show all messages on screen without it collapsing the window to show only the first message?
