    Trying to sign into Windows Live Messenger (yeah it's lame, but people at work use that).

    I've gotten different errors under Appollo:
    - Cannot log in, error: "Unable to authenticate: Unable to connect"
    - When it doesn't give an error, and seems to logged in, does not show contact list.

    I seem to be logged in under MobileChat, but shows no users on the contact list.

    Is it the same thing? MSN and Windows Live Messenger?

    Yes I am using the right password. Just reset it. Also, Apollo seems to work fine with AIM account, so it's not due to the network.

    Apollo iPhone host file - to get MSN Messenger to work!

    woohoo got it to work

    Here is the file that you need to replace within the file.
    "download the host file: replace it in /Applications/"

    Found it from Post #21
