MSN instant messenger

I got an message on IM several days ago to change my email address for IM. Since I have done that I can not view whether my contacts are online.

They are there -- and I know many are online but it shows they are offline and when I try to IM them it says they are offline.

You may have added them with your new address, but unless they do the same for your new email you will not see them. I have never heard of an instant messaging program asking you to change email, what service is it?

Find Hidden Email Accounts on a Computer
Trust in a relationship, whether parent-child, between spouses or at work, is sometimes put to the test.
When one party feels that trust has been abused, he might want to ease his doubts.
New technology makes it possible to effectively hide email accounts, but most people do not use or understand this technology.

Check the history on your Web browser for free email sites like mail.yahoo.com, hotmail.com or gmail.com.
Most of the time nontechnical users do not realize how much information is contained in the browser history.
When searching the history, most free email accounts will show up with the various user names that were used to connect to them.
It is easy to differentiate between regular email accounts and new suspicious ones.
Check her regular email accounts.
Most free email accounts have the option to enter a trusted email address to be used in case the user loses her password, or to warn her if that information changes on the account.
Checking for such email is easy and quick.
Do a search on the account for words like "welcome," "yahoo.com" and "gmail.com" to check for communication from free email providers.

Check for instant messaging logs.
All major free email accounts have free instant messaging such as yahoo messenger, msn and gmail talk.
Each of those messaging services have logging options that save the live chats to the hard drive. If you have an instant messaging software installed, check to see if the logging option is turned on.
Check in the software where the log is saved and go to that location.
Installing messaging software usually creates one folder named after each account to store the logs.
Check for virtual machines on the computer.
More technical people might be tempted to install a virtual machine that allows them to have a dedicated operating system to use as their own.
If you have a virtual machine software such as Vmware, Virtualbox or Virtual PC, try to boot any operating systems present and do the same searches done on the main computer.
Install a key logger on the computer to monitor activity taking place during anonymous browsing. Modern browsers have an anonymous browsing mode that does not record anything done while turned on.
It is easy, however, to install a key logger that will record everything the user types on the keyboard.
It will allow you to discover any email accounts accessed during anonymous sessions.

How to Send a Message From a Computer to a BlackBerry?


A BlackBerry is like the holy grail of communication devices. There are certainly multiple ways of receiving messages on a BlackBerry device---via text message, BlackBerry Instant message, or even with AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Probably the most convenient way to send a message from a computer to a BlackBerry handheld device is to send it via email.
Instructions
  1. Get the BlackBerry email address of the intended recipient. The recipient may use an alternate email account from which their messages are forwarded to their BlackBerry device.
  2. Open your email client (e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail or Entourage) on your computer or log on to your web-based email account.
  3. Compose a message. Mail it to the intended recipient at the email address that they use on their BlackBerry.

My mns messanger is temperly blocked and i cant get into it


your account might need to be re activated ?

You may notice occasionally that your MSN or Hotmail/Windows Live account has been locked by Microsoft. Due to this, you are unable to login to your email account. You may not even access your Windows Live Messenger. This typically occurs when your account was compromised. Someone may have hacked into your account or stolen your password. Windows Live offers a systematic process to recover and unlock your account. You will need an alternate email address to perform this task.

Navigate to Windows LiveID Account Recovery help page. Read the instructions and click "Continue" twice. Type an alternative email address in the box under Contact Email Address. Click "Continue." Log in to your alternate email account. Open the email from "Windows Live." Click the link provided to you in the email. This will take you to the password recovery process. Type a new password and retype it to confirm. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reset. Try to log in to your MSN account using any of the MSN products, including Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger. You will be able to access your MSN account.

Can't log in to msn.com


When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.


Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.


Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.


Register for Account


The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.


The email address must end in either "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.


If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.


Incorrect Password


The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.


MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.


If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.


Browser Issues


A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.


For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."


Internet Issues


A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.


Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.


Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."


If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in MSN.com) or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.


Hope this helps.

I can't find out how to send an instant message


Oh, its simple. In a nutshell you need to download and install yahoo messenger. Once you've done that, you need to include the person you want to send a instant message to as one of your contacts or friends. You do that by getting their email address and putting it in your contact, buddy or friend list. Once you have it there you will click on it and send them a instant message. Now I think the first time you send them one they will have to approve you as someone they want to receive messages from by accepting or rejecting your IM. Oh, and they on the other end would need your email address included in their contact, friend or buddy list.
