    I know on messenger for windows when you send a text to a mobile device they can respond to your computer. How do you set this up on messenger for mac?

    Which messenger for Mac are you using/meaning? Which software? Which protocol? Yahoo! Messenger? AIM? MSN? I don't honestly know if it's possible with any of these, but I don't have a clue where to start researching without a wee bit more information. :)

    messenger for mac

    in messenger for windows i know they can just hit reply to thetext and it goes to the computer. In my messenger for mac it states in the message box that that i will not receive an instant message response. I am not sure if this setting can be changed. I cant find where to change this setting.

    You can't.

    MSN for Mac is severely outdated and Microsoft really needs to get it's act together.

    Apparently a new on is in production, but I wouldn't rely on it. Best to put our hopes in something like to get this functionality instead (although it's unlikely).

    I don't think there IS a solution for you. Sorry. I guess you'll probably have to use a mobile cell phone again =\
