Hi Alex,

Do you have the "Adjust to status" checkbutton checked in accounts
window -> Account tab on both side? What are the priorities you're
connected with on both side? (You can check that in the tooltip of the
account row)
Message generally (it's server dependent) go to the highest priority

Now if you want to receive messages on all your resources, and if your
server supports this feature, you can check the "Receive conversations
from other resources" checkbox in accounts window -> General tab
