Howdy folks
I have run into a spot of bother with trying to log into msn messenger, I have downloaded a few different applications with no success. I use to use Adium ages ago, but it shat itself on me so I gave up. But now found that I have use for using msn again, nothing works. They just sit there and say "connecting" for hours on end to no avail. I've tried MSN for mac, msn text, latest adium and latest version of fire. I can log into my hotmail using the same name and password but not into msn messenger so it can't be my user account details that are faulty. Anyone else had similar problems? four applications with no success, username same as always been and am able to log into hotmail with that username and password but nothing with msn. What the fudge?

MSN is working fine for me using adium.

Can you try using a different email address (for example a gmail address) as a new msn account?

This should be able to tell you if the problem is your computer / account / software etc.

Try the 'connect via http' option in Adium as well, I know that a while ago a lot of us has problems connecting to msn, and the http option fixed it. Might be worth a go.
