Strange.. I had that problem last night.. Seems to be working fine now though. Could've been an issue on their end perhaps.

Have you tried restarting msn?

I am having the same problem as of yesterday! I've been trying to find a way to contact someone who can help me troubleshoot... please let me know if you were able to unblock your contacts and how.
Since this happened my word, and excel docs keep closing unexpectedly! Something's going on!

Hey guys, I just wanted to say that I'm having the same problem here (Belgium) since the day before yesterday. I blocked 2 people and when I wanted to unblock them, it was'nt possible anymore!! I've tried several times to uninstall and reinstall messenger but they just won't unblock!!
I have VMware to run Windows XP on my macbook and when I try to log on to msn there, the people aren't blocked, how crazy is that!!

If anyone has a solution for this "unblock" problem, please let us know, thx

Have you tried unblocking them through Adium or aMSN and seeing if that does it?

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

wow ok i think i found the solution....simply clear your account history! I did so and all the contacts I had unblocked (but still appeared blocked) were now appearing as they should!

So basically if you want to block someone you won't be able to unblock them again until you sign out, clear account history and sign back in.

Hope this helps you guys!

This may sound stupid, but where can I clear the account history?
I can clear the message history, but this (ofcourse) doesn't help *** :p

After 2 hours of searching online this worked -----

Windows Live Solution Center
"here is the REAL fix:
1. shut msn down
2. open up /user/library/preferences/microsoft/
3. remove "Microsoft Messenger User Cache.plist"
Problem solved! "
