    Hello,
    I can't display my username as I would like.
    Up to the status(Available, Away, etc) it shows the name I want, but, on the contact list, it keeps showing my e-mail!
    I've already changed:
    Adium > Preferences > MSN account > Edit > 'Personal' tab > Display name. (it has the name I want).

    Adium > Preferences > Personal > Name.
    (it has the name I want).

    Adium > Advanced > Messages > Checked 'Custom name format' > Choose user name.

    What could be wrong?
    Any help is appreciated!

    Does it allow you to connect to your friends list on that account?

    Uhh... are you able to chat with your friends??

    If it's working, I don't see the problem? Maybe I'm not understanding your question correctly.

    Yes, of course I am. But my nickname is my e-mail address, not the one I want to use.
    Instead of Wowzera, let's say, my nickname is wowzera@gmail.com. How can I set it to Wowzera?

    I'm having the same problem! Has anyone figured out why this is happening? I've gone into preferences under both the account, and general preferences - and it still shows my email.
