Click on Tools, and then plugins
Load the MSN plugin (pretty straight forward names)

Ok, now when you add the account, make sure in the drop down menu that MSN is the protocol used.

Cool

yes I have and was logged in but I find I can not join in the chat.
File -> Join A Chat

then I get the message :

"you are not currently signed on with any protocols that have the ability to chat'
