    For some reason all of my contacts on messenger have just been blocked and I am unable to unblock any of them. I can sign into messenger no problem but I have to go through and accept all my contacts again as if they had just added me.

    How can I unblock them and return my messenger to normal?

    Anyway see this before?

    I would go into your Home directory, drill down to Library>Preferences, and remove the com.microsoft.messenger.plist file. If that doesn't work trash the app and re-download it from the MacTopia site.

    Still no joy

    Thans for the reply. I tried to remove the plist to no avail! I also deleted the app and attempted to reinstall is. Now when I try to open the new version it just freezes! Any additional ideas or anyone else have any ideas? I am stuck!

    Thanks,

    BP

    Have you tried accessing the same Messenger account from another computer? There may be something going on with your MSN account that Microsoft need to look into.

    I recently had this too. It's an easy fix :)

    sign out of messenger and then click on "Sign in with a different account or change your online status"


    Then at the bottom, click on "clear account history"

    Then sign in and all should be well. :eek:
