I feel a bit dumb asking this, but I've scoured the preferences and can't find any option about how to disable the built-in notifications (ie, not growl) which are shown when a contact comes online.

I'm using Mac OSX 10.6, latest version of Adium.

I think you are looking for Preferences --> Notifications (I guess this will be the english term in the menu).

Here you can not only add and delete sound and growl notifications, but also any other alerts.

Thanks! Still seems a bit weird that they would call this option "growl notifications" instead of just "notifications", as those route through growl if available. Anyways, got it sorted out. – Nik Reiman Mar 29 '12 at 10:23
