    Messenger and Hotmail (Win XP MSM 4.7)

    As I recall, messenger is supposed to tell me when I have hotmail messages in my in box. I run msm and log in with my passport, get the buddy list okay, but no hotmail notification. I can access hotmail through the web using the same passport, and find new email in the inbox, but messenger cant seem to see it.
    Any help with this appreciated.

    It's ages since I've used MSN Messenger, but I assume you've checked the Preferences (Tools>Options) and made sure that any 'alert'-type settings are correct?

    It seems that you are using Windows Messenger. I'd encourage you to update to the latest version at .NET Messenger Service -- Free Instant Messaging service. Also, you might want to consider using MSN Messenger Version 7.0 instead. Windows Messenger is considered to be a corporate messenging program that is increasingly being tied to the Office Communicator Server product.

    Yes - I see I am running Windows Messenger.
    Upgrading to the 'real thing' will do the trick
    Thanks
