    Make an exception in your firewall if it's turned on. Otherwise, the issue is with the product and I'm not sure how to help.

    This worked for me:

    open a new finder window, choose your user folder under 'places', go to the 'libary' folder, then 'preferences', then there should be a 'Microsoft' folder with a file called Microsoft Messenger User Cache.plist inside. Delete the folder, restart Messenger and it should work.
