    I've had this macbook (my first mac) for about half a year now and never had any problems with Messenger for Mac;
    However just now a friend logged on to his Messenger-account (a gmail one) on my laptop/messenger for Mac, all good and well so far ,
    but now I can't log in on mine anymore;
    when I log on on Messenger for mac (I have downloaded version 7, but this didn't help) it just says that my password is incorrect or or that my e-mail address is inexistant.
    When I log on on Adium (wich I have recenty downloaded) I get pretty much the same thing.
    When I log on Amsn ( this never actually worked :s ), it keeps connecting, it never makes the actual connection I think

    Now I've
    -checked my password a dozen of times, I can even still log on on my gmail e-mail inbox etc. so that's not the problem.
    - I've checked my Windows Live Status and it's up and running
    - I have gone to my fire-wall tab to make sure it allows those 3 programs, but no improvement.

    Mac is all good and well, but I've never had msn-problems on my -now in the trash- Windows computer, ... so ..err..
    please help asap

    :apple: is still the best
    - for now

    I'm having a similar problem. Suddenly I can no longer connect to MSN through Adium or MSN messenger. It works fine in windows though. I just don't get it...
