    I have used MSN Messenger for both Mac and Windows and the Windows version has a feature so that if people message you when you are offline, those messages will be delivered once you go online. With the Mac version, it seems that you never receive those messages. Is there any way to enable that feature on the Mac version or does it just not exist?

    The mac version is missing a lot of features that the windows version has, I am not sure about any that have that particular feature, but try looking at some of the other clients that support MSN to see if any of them do.

    @poohat1000 -- Adium (its msn messenger part) doesn't receive offline messages.

    I use MSN for Mac. It isn't as advanced as the windows version so there are lots of features that would be missing. You will find a big difference between :apple: MSN and Microsoft MSN.

    aMSN is what you're looking for. It will display offline messages and it's the closest thing to Windows live messsenger for the Mac that I know of.

    the only thing that bugs me is that the scrolling of the contact list is a big laggy. but the other features makes up for it imo.
