AIM 6.0 features offline messaging, conversation logging and message forwarding to cell phones.

AOL was set to unveil on Wednesday its latest instant messaging client, AIM 6.0, which lets people send messages to offline users to receive later and allows people to log and save conversations. The service also includes a new mobile dashboard that lets users manage mobile alerts and forward instant messages to their cell phones once they log off. AOL has doubled the number of contacts users can have in their buddy list to 1,000 from 500 and provided deeper integration with AIM Pages, AOL's social networking service.
