    The public beta is very buggy with many features still not working. The display pictures of other people does not work. I don't know about the custom emoticons as I didn't have a chance to try them, but it wouldn't surprise me if they don't work. I stopped using the beta as it would crash all the time and reverted to running the windows version in a vm. Hopefully, they'll have it all worked out for the October release of Office 2011.

    You're not alone my friend...click the link below and check the "known issues"

    I know microsoft could of done better...could be a strategy to see how many reports they would get which in turn would let them know if final version is necessary....:cool:

    I'm very disappointed with Microsoft with regards to Mac Messenger. I really do like Windows Live Messenger on Windows. However, I find the quality of current stable release of Messenger for Mac incredibly poor in terms of features and stability, incomparison to the Windows version.

    I reverted back to the 7.0.2 version because more features seemed to work in it. Bit shameful really.
