Question about Microsoft MSN Messenger Connect Service
Three weeks ago I downloaded the latest MSN Messenger version. For a few days it worked fine, but then it stopped flashing popup messages when I get an email (I use Hotmail and the Firefox browser). Today I uninstalled Messenger and downloaded again the older version, Messenger 8.1, but it still does not alert me when an email comes in. (Although it does tell me when a contact opens Messenger.) I tried unchecking and re-checking the "alerts & sounds" box in the tools/options menu, to no avail. I'm a reporter and need this function to keep track of newsbreaks, editors requests, etc. Canst help?
I would re-download the newest Windows Live Messenger and try again, Microsoft was reporting a bug about this a while back that has been released and is included in the newest verion available at

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
