I'd like irssi to highlight all messages from a specific nickname. How can I accomplish this?

From /help hilight:

Hilight all messages from "mynick":

/HILIGHT -mask mynick!*@*

  • Why did you include the phrase "Please do your research [...] before asking!"?

  • That's the instruction in How to Ask: Do your homework. Have you thoroughly searched for an answer before asking your question?

  • Why do you post and answer such a question yourself then (I do not oppose the question just the phrasing)?

    Since I found the answer five minutes after posting the question, I obviously didn't put enough effort into research before asking.
