Names are not visible in contact list in msn messenger 9.0

I recently downloaded msn messenger 9.0. But it doesnt show my contact list. its empty. Although in my e mail account I have all the names, but in messenger i dont see any. i tried to add from e mail but its of no use. This problem was not there when I had 8.0 version. Now even if i try to install that, it says u must upgrade. How to make those names visible n chat with them?

Have you set up the configuration / preferences for Ver 9 properly? Make sure under layout you have show offline contacts selected (at bottom) - then go through the rest of the preferences on by one and make sure they are correctly set.

To get to the settings
The third button on right of "Search contacts or..." is your main menu button - click it
Go to Tools->Options->Layout

Problem with MSN


Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

Sometimes, the user (the contact) update their names that they would like to show when other messenger contacts add his/hers contact to messenger . That´s means your contact name get reset to the default what the contact may have been chosen. You can always edit the name again by right-click on the name and choose edit name.

BTW: It happens some times that the contact names get reset of other reasons (bugs)

Hope it helps
IF NOT then try to return here

Have a nice time over there
