Gaim: Changing MSN server nickname

Hi there,

I have been through the FAQ and searched on the net and can't seem to find out whether or not I can change the global server nickname for MSN in Gaim.

I can change the Alias, but that doesn't seem to be visible on other people's computers (alias for myself).

Is it possible? Or not implemented yet?
