    Yes.. You can download MSN for mac. MS doesn't seem to put importance to it and therefore they don't update it as they do with the PC version as well as it doesn't support webcam... You could also look for Adium (which is open source and has a number of addon/plugins) and supports many different chat platforms not just MSN (sadly not webcam yet). There are others that support webcam but I didn't find them too stable.

    Hope that helps

    Well thanks for the quick and useful answer, but that's not what i'm looking for.
    I mean if I have 2 MSN accounts, can I run them both?

    Why not just try it? Instead of asking? It's not like anything bad is going to happen if you do try.

    Report back to us, as I would like to know if it works or not.

    I already did, but I try to open it twice it open just the first one.
    Is there a script/mod/patch or whatever to make 2 msn accounts working?

    What you need to do is download MSN Messenger, then extract the .app to different locations, for example, one in Applications, and one in Applications/MSN.

    Since it's technically two different "installs," it should let you run multiple instances.

    Otherwise, Adium supports multiple accounts under the same client. I believe aMSN and Mercury Messenger do this as well.

    That seems like a hassle though. If anything I would just use Adium. >_<"

    As much as I agree, I like to be flexible and have options.. Some chat apps don't have features like others do, that's all

    It's not Adium, I used Msn twice on a different place, but that didn't worked.
    If I'm using Adium the emoticons don't work at all :/
