If you are like many iChat users, you might have multiple iChat accounts. For example, maybe you have a personal account and an account for work. New to iChat in Snow Leopard, you can now select a different status for each of your accounts. For instance, maybe on weekends you want to set your personal account to a status of Available while setting your work account to Only if it's an Emergency. To enable multiple statuses, go to iChat > Preferences > and under the General tab, uncheck Use the same status for all accounts, which is a new checkbox here in Snow Leopard version of iChat.
Now I can set separate status messages to each of my accounts. So I can set my Mobile Me account maybe to Available, and you can see my AIM account is still set to Recording, or I could say In a meeting. So you can see this allows you to keep both accounts open and active through iChat while letting different buddies see different messages.
