    Hi guys,

    Im new to this forum but certainly not new to mac. I have been using both messenger 7.0.2 and the beta version of 8 for some time. I have recently upgraded both to Snow Leopard, and changed my ISP to TPG (Australian ISP). Ever since, when I attempt to connect to messenger (either version) it says the connection failed as I am not connected to the internet. My internet works fine so I am at a loss as to what the problem is.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Get Adium, the best Mac IM client. Once I used it, I realised how crap MSN for Mac really was.

    I have tried, but also to no avail. The adium logo has a square/circle thing that rotates continuously next to its head, and the program doesn't connect.

    Hmmm...that's strange. I sometimes get automatically signed out of MSN for Mac but when I sign back in everything seems to be fine.

    Try Palringo, another IM for Mac...and it has a multi-network feature! Note that it's currently in a Beta version.

    And if all else fails...you could always go on eBuddy web messenger! :)
