MS blocks 3rd party MSN Clients.


Well, now MS blocks 3rd party MSN Clients like GAIM. What can i do to connect? Is there anyone who has been successful using Wine and MSN Messenger?

Im locked out with Gaim, but tried AMSN and that works. However, IMO AMSN isnt as good as Gaim, so I hope the Gaim team sort it out....

Edit: Got latest 0.71 working now... Sweeeet!

you need a third party client that supports MSNP9, which I believe the newest version of GAIM does. as a few people have already attested to.
