    Hey guys,
    I bought a new iMac 24" about a month ago.
    It runs Mac OS X Snow Leopard (all up to date).
    So I used Microsoft Messenger for Mac from the first day I bought it.
    Yesterday I installed Adium.
    So everything went well yesterday.
    When I went to sleep, I closed all apps from the background (Command + Q),
    And put the iMac on sleep.
    Today I tried to use Adium and it won't log-in.
    It says sometimes "Retreiving buddy list"
    or some problems with the network (of the MSN).
    I tried to used Microsoft Messenger for Mac and it says
    something like "Service not responding or no network connection"..
    * I HAVE FULL NETWORK CONNECTION (Plug-in straight to the router) *
    I tried already reinstall everything, reset the router, reset the computer,
    Changing the port of Adium to 80 (I brought it back to default later)..
    I also installed OniX and clean the data with it, it still have this problem.
    I've done everything I can to solve it, but I still can't figure it out.
    Someone can help me?
    I need my MSN.. :(

    I have the same problem. Think it might be something to do with the Hotmail server:confused: I tried Adium also. It didn't connect. Probably the server is timing out? I don't know. Would love a reply for this question also. Cheers.

    I have the same problem too. It's weird, my email account will sign in perfectly fine if I use eBuddy or something, but when I try to use Microsoft Messenger it won't work.
