    It happens ALL the time. It's really annoying, especially on dialup. It happens a lot less if your on broadband but still often! Tip: Don't use it...

    I use Adium: http://www.adiumx.com

    It logs into MSN, Yahoo, AIM, iChat etc etc etc and it has amazing. You can also mod it with different emoticons.. and file sending is really good.. unlike MSN for mac :p

    Adium is the way to go indeed. It looks cool and you can even see when your correspondents close the conversation window:

    Wot? Am i not interesting enough? :mad:

    :D

    i use AMSN

    just do a search on google for AMSN for OS X --- it's a lot more stable, i think i get a disconnect once every few months since i got it

    i ALWAYS get the same problem and i have rogers highspeed so i don't think it has nehting to do with connection speed cause some days i'll sign in and 3 seconds later i'm off, and also, there is often a delay and it won't say i'm signed out untill i actuallyy try to msg someoen :mad:

    Fire

    I decided to try Fire after having the same problem, and haven't had a problem with it.

    Haven't tried Adium, though.

    I certanly agree Adium is hand over foot better than messenger but I've found the exact opposite with the file sharing. I've found it's almost un-useable with adium.

    Microsoft has had serious problems with it's MSN servers lately, chances are it's not a problem located on your machines, but rather a server error...

    And, yes, Adium X is by far the best piece of (free) IM software out there at the moment...
