Long time to reply ... sorry about that!
Anyway, I was using an msn account (yeah I know) and that's what I thought though I couldn't seem to find this in any of the GUI menus and looking through the /usr/bin directory I couldn't seem to find anything matching this.
I'm now using aMSN which works fine for me, as I was never such a big fan of kepete, because I prefered to use GAIM. Then again, I like to be able to use web cam which GAIM seems to lack unless there's a plugin for that.
So in conclusion I'm fairly happy at the moment though the problem still remains unsolved.
Unfortunatly, aMSN only lets you sign on with one account at a time
seems like they decided to REALLY clone MSN and bring in the disadvantages that come with it.
