    I don't know why but my MSN Messenger for Mac would automatically sign me out after 10 to 20 minutes or so for no reason. Anyone experienced this before? Any fix for this? It's kind of annoying.

    Every 10 - 20 minutes? or sporadic? I've sometimes had it sign out automatically for some unknown reason, but most of the time it stays connected. Usually 14 - 24 hours. The app is a bit flaky at times. Saying that so is the the MSN network.

    What version are you on, latest? 7.0.1 (080527)

    Yes, I've had the same problem. I switched to Adium and it's been excellent.

    Yes Adium is excellent.

    But it doesn't support webcam video calls however.

    Get Mercury Messenger, it's a MSN only messenger (Adium does GTalk and others as well), and it works seamlessly, with video etc and have all that funny pre-defined fonts just as how it appeared in MSN.

    Mercury Messenger is awful, the UI sucks up the CPU something rotten. More so when resizing a window or any activity.
