Yes, it is.  Unless you are frequently using some other client.

There is not, but a plugin could add it.

Sounds like a bug.

You can tell it to ignore incoming formatting.

This is not currently possible.

> * Is there a way to set up a different kind of logfiles? Currently it seams that every time I close a chat window, a new logfile is created. It would be helpfull, if there is a mode where all messages are tracked into one file until Pidgin is closed.

A plugin could do this.
