I was wondering if theres any way to make Adium show my status the same as an MSN Messenger personal message, when listening to a song on iTunes?

All of my contacts on Adium are MSN messenger contacts, so the normal iTunes status in Adium just shows up as text on a windows pc running MSN messenger, whereas when on windows it would show the Song Name - Artist, and a clickable link, if anyone has used MSN you will know what I mean!

Is there anyway I can make it the same, so someone looking at my status on windows will see this (see attachment)

Sorry for any confusion! Its not important, but is really bugging me!

Click on the status clicker in Adium right under the username up top where is says available, Away, Etc. Select iTunes from the Menu. It will show everyone your iTunes track you are currently playing.

Yeah I tried that and it works fine, although to a windows user it just shows up as 'Title - Artist' and looks as though it has just been typed in there, notice on the attachment its a link, but if theres no way to do that then it doesnt matter.
Ive tried custom statuses with different tags, but with no result!
Thanks for your help anyway!

I would have to check it on a windows machine but I will take your word. That is the only way I know of in Adium. If you want a URL to the song I don't think Adium supports that. I could be wrong though since I have never gone beyond what I told you.
