Just downloaded MSN on my Mac but I keep getting disconnected. Any idea why?
I'm on Mac OS X Version 10.3.8 and I downloaded MSN messenger for MAC Version 4.0.1.

Ok, I've downloaded Adium but guess what? I'm still getting disconnected!
Am I experiencing a firewall or something?

Check with ur system admin. High probability they blocked all ports for ICQ, MSN, IRC, etc, etc.

then most likely your admin blocked MSN/ICQ to prevent workers to chat online during working hours lor :nono:

Likely the sysadmin has blocked IM ports to prevent spread of IM virus - heard that theres a Kelvir worm variant thats making the rounds.

For those who still have access to IM, just practice caution and NOT click on any URL being sent over IM.
