    i have lots of issues with mac messenger, friends couldn't talk to me or see me i couldn't talk with anyone even though i was signed in.

    best bet is to go and use aduim (i think thats it) best thing ever created if you ask me

    yea im kinda using adium already also! but im not too used to the interface yet. since we're on the topic, haha ive got a few qns for adium! can i use webcam? how do i change my font colour?(i changed the font colour from the "font colour" option already, but there isnt any like 'confirm' button, so whenever i start another convo, the font colour goes back to black. ) also, does adium have a PERSONAL MESSAGE function like that of microsoft messenger?

    i've only been using it for about 3 days myself really so i cant really help you atm but its very customizable if you go to xtras manager and go get more you go to there website and some fun stuff on there. when i'm done messing about with the funny doc icons i'll probably worry about my font colour and that

    Same problem here. I was unable to get connected to MSN Messenger for some time. I have had to revert to an older .Net passport to get in at all. Which raises an interesting question. I haven't used that older .Net credential set in two years, and yet it is still valid. How do you DELETE a .Net credential set? I am not sure that there is a way! Does anyone know?
