GAIM unable to sign on to MSN with a non @hotmail.com address...


I've recently switched to Linux, and am really missing MSN, so I tried out GAIM. The problem is that my .NET passport doesnt end in @hotmail.com, @msn.com etc., instead it ends in @btopenworld.com. For some reason GAIM (and aMSN) can't conect me. Is there a Linux MSN which can?
