I have both messenger services which may or may not be the root of my problem.If I contact someone from my Yahoo they respond through MSN messenger & to them I show up offline.They also say that I`m not getting all there messages.I tried shutting down my Yahoo to meet them on MSN but then they show up offline.My girlfriend says that I shouldn`t even be able to contact her through Yahoo because she doesn`t even have it.Do I only keep one?Is that the answer? I`m getting frustrated.

Usually Yahoo to MSN and vice-versa does not work. Nor does intermixing communications with other IMs. I really thought the new MSN Windows Live and latest Yahoo overcame these problems, but not sure since I use neither. Only AIM and ICQ are compatible with each other.

If you only use the chat window for your IMs, may I recommend the free version of Trillian? Once set up with all the services and screen names, Trillian will connect to all of them at once. If you wish to use Trillian, but with sound and video, then you will have to purchase Trillian Pro which has many more features.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
