This may help: a Windows/MSN Messenger clone for linux.
http://amsn.sourceforge.net/. Looks like it should connect to Windows Messenger also.
Another option may be Gaim - all searches indicate that it doesn't discriminate between Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger.

You can try SIM - very nice and sample IM client. http://sim-icq.sourceforge.net Supports many protocols. You can try it.

I attempted to use the SIM, wouldn't allow me to connect to my companies Live Communication server using SIP over SSL. In order to connect to the LC server in windows world it requires windows messenger 5.1 you cannot use MSN messenger to connect to LC.

Thanks for the suggestions.
