MSN: Issues Adding Contacts

Post by noeylani94 »

My last thread wasn't replied to and I think I might have posted it in the wrong section.

I've been an Adium user for several months and this is my first time experiencing any issues with the application. This morning I went to add several new valid addresses to my contact list; however, the program says they are invalid. This problem occurs with both AIM and MSN contacts. Here's a screenshot of what occurs:

Unfortunately, this is a known issue that has not been resolved, yet. It appears Microsoft has changed something server-side that has caused the breakage. See http://trac.adium.im/ticket/14965 for details.

I'll add this issue to the list in the "Known Issues" thread.

Hi.

I'm having the same issue, it seems I can add the contact from the live-homepage or in the official messenger client - but the contact doesn't show up in my Adium contact list after that ,(

Any idea on when this will be solved?

I'm having the same problem as Sebastien. When I try to add a contact, or someone adds me as a contact, I am able to add them and they appear online until I sign off. The next time I sign in, they appear offline even if they're actually online.

This is a huge problem. When will this be resolved? Due to this problem, my business is being affected.

With Adium 1.4.2, this will be fixed. A beta will be released next month at the latest, I guess.

@Robby,

Great. Adium is truly one of the superior mass chat messengers online. I've been holding onto Adium despite this problem.

I know this is a known issues but still want to add that I got the same problem.
Doesnt matter if someone adds me, or I add them, they automatic goes to the offline part of my list (not visible) and I can chat with them the first session, next time they wont ever be visible or online again, even if they are...

Running Adium 1.4.1 and this has happen to ALL my new contacts the last weeks....

I'm adding contact with Microsoft Messenger, you can download that on the Apple site but is also deliverd in the Office for Mac.
Make sure you delete the contact in Adium and add them with Microsoft Messenger.
Also I noticed contact will add to your list, when adding the contact with Adium, but won't come online even if they are.

First it worked for me to add contacts with the online clients of Messenger but that doesn't seem to work for me now.

I also have not been able to send files lately either. Plus in the latest version if I drag a photo into the window it no longer does a file transfer, it attempts to put the photo right into the message which doesn't work for everyone.
