dotblu has partnered with Meebo to bring instant messaging to dotblu. This is another feature we've received many requests for and we have been working for a long time to bring it to you.
With dotblu instant messaging, you are automatically signed in when you sign in on dotblu. You can see which of your friends are online, and anyone on dotblu will be able to instant message you. You'll be able to see your friends' status updates, and send messages when they're offline that will be delivered as soon as they sign on.
If you'd rather only receive IMs from your friends, you can set that in your preferences. If you would rather not be messaged, you can disable instant messaging from the chat window, by clicking on your own status message, where it says 'available'. From that drop down menu, select 'sign off chat'.
