It is released under a proprietary license and is currently free to download though the developers and software company are looking at various business models to earn revenue. It needs registration, which can be done through the program’s installer or through a web interface. Digsby currently supports only Windows, but has announced mac & Linux support.

Features

  • Email :The program includes an email client, with new mail notifications, POP3 and IMAP support. It automatically retrieves a “from” email address from the logged in instant messaging profiles.
  • Social networking : Digsby allows you to add social networking sites to the application.

Users did not want to lose their logs, and without a built in function to import their old logs, many decided to remain with their old chat client. With a Log Converter users can switch to Digsby without losing their chat history.
