    Hi, having a problem with my msn. I usually use aduim but this morning that wouldn't connect to msn, so I try the msn messenger, that doesn't either and get the 'service not available or maybe your not connected to the internet', i was and am. So I thought it was the service. However my msn account works on my xbox and it works if I use the web msn messenger on the same machine aduim and msn messenger wont work! Really don't know what to do, any suggestions?

    Go to System Prefs->Network->Advanced->DNS, and add the servers:
    208.67.222.222, 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1

    Thanks for the replies. Still seems to not be working. I thought it might be little snitch but even when disabled it doesn't work. The port it uses is and always has been open on my routers firewall.
