I think Gaim no longer supports aMSN , for they didn't update to Protocol v9.0 which means Gaim cannot connect to MSN Servers since October 15th, 2003.

if you mean gaim can't support msn, then maybe you should actually try it... my gaim client kinda says otherwise

Latest version of GAIM (0.71) works with no problems.

Take a look to the GAIM FAQ, MSN section.
