hey guys!

A quick question - Do you know of any messenger programs, which will join the Microsoft Passports Network on a Mac, and support webcams?

The next release of Microsfot Messenger for Mac (MSN 7) will be out Q3/4 of 2007. In this version, Video Chat will be available. It has been delayed because for the mac version would need to use a different type of server to transmit the images, and it isnt compatable with the current Windows server. Next year, they're are using a cross platform server for both Windows and OSX.

Theres a press release around somewhere. I read it on here actually. go have a look for it :D

EDIT: Updated info.

Really cant see it being that hard and just wish they would hurry up and get it done, but looks like it will be at least another year
