    ok... presumably they haven't offered to cut you in on a money dear for a dead guy in that country... or south africa or whatever.... you can go to the message properties to see where the message is coming from. won't do much good if they use hotmail or such... ask him/her for their phone number ... you need to talk to them personally.... then note the area code

IM cannot send

Hi, should be able to tell which version of IM you are using by going to help at the top and clicking about. A window should pop up with detail information about the IM you are using and a version number. I know yahoo and msn messenger allows you to send and offline message. not sure for AOL and others.
