This new issue is persistent though and very annoying. The only thing I have noticed is that the messages seem to get through while in an active conversation but don't if left idle for a number of minutes.

going to their site, I noticed that there is an update to 7, and they have a new version of office and messenger 8, which does voice and video chat on the mac now.
would this cause them to change their settings in how messenger works causing errors in older versions? it is microsoft...
still unable to view ALL messages on hotmail via adium...

Either their programming is bugged or my computers messed up but if it is bugged i dont know how it would effect adium since adium already does some basic functions that microsoft messenger wont do *cough* offline messages *cough*
is it just me or does it seem that most people have more trouble on adium using msn accounts they either use more often or have more contacts in than other accounts of the same?? its just a hunch.
I have been on the Messenger forums, since I cannot log in with messenger any more, odd, after 10 years of reliable service, when I needed it as I used Adium and before that was ... Fire ... to access my hotmail chat... anyway, apparently others are having issues with old versions and the newer 8 version with the same error. "Sign in to messenger failed because service is not responding...." error message. and it is not OS specific, meaning it happens on any MAc OS and any cpu, intel or not.
So MSN messenger is out of the question as well, so far, I am only able to chat with my hotmail contacts ONLINE with a browser logged into my hotmail account. this is so unacceptable since I have been using adium for more than 2 years without trouble and messenger app, for 10 years.
i have told all my hotmail friends to create a yahoo account, since yahoo has no issues, so far, and I am also recommending to the ADIUM developers to stop support for hotmail, since it is not working across the board and does not look like it will be fixed any time soon.
I still want to use ADIUM, it ROCKS, or does so for me, just the services they try to carry are the problems, I do not blame ADIUM for the MSN / hotmail issue -- it is a microsoft problem and business does not do well with problems, so the fix is, another service.
