    alright, after having a mess of problems with msn chat 5.0, i have decided to give adium another try. for those of you who are using the latest version of adium and have contacts via msn, how is the connection quality with those contacts you have? does it constantly drop the connection during your conversations or is it fine?

    any input would be great, thanks. :eek:

    For me it's more stable than Microsoft's client.

    I've never had a connection problem with Adium; but always had disconnects with the official MSN client.

    Adium is definitely more stable than Microsoft Messenger 5. I've had a few problems with messages not being delivered, but I haven't seen one of those for a long time.

    Never had any problems with Adium at all, even with the current 0.83b9 release. Very impressive program. Would definitely recommend it!

    Nope. Its not an official client, so it can't use AOL's (AIM) or MSN's servers for that stuff.

    I love adium!

    I've never had connection problems.
    I've never had file transfer problems.

    I love the extent that it can be customised. The number of extras, skins, sounds on their website is great! Best multi log in client I have ever used on either Windoze of mac platforms.
