    There is also the way you can get to call back the previous or part of the Last chat you had with that person.

    If you tick the box I have marked and then chose one of the options in the indicated drop down you will see either the whole of the last chat or the last x IMs of that chat when you click a Buddy to start a new Chat.

     

    It does take a while to build up a history.  (mine goes back to 2004 in some cases).

    However it an be useful also when someone contacts you as this will trigger the setting as well.

     

    iChat 4 does not have this setting but has a different one that keeps the Last Chat (with whoever) open across Shut down and restarting iChat.

    With a good history of chats iChat 5 can run a close approximation of this.

     

    iChat 6 will reopen any window that was open when your Quit iChat.
