    Should read this, it is the difference between MSN Messenger and Messenger:
    It says Messenger is for the Business environment and that consumers (most of us) should use MSN Messenger. However, it is fully compatible with MSN's server as well as it's own so I think I'll use Messenger as I don't like all the extras. I just want a clean interface.

    Better than MSN Messenger by far, but I recommend using GAIM instead.

    New build provides fixes and enhancements to previous release... continues to work well and do what it's supposed to.

    To Adriane79's comment... I suspect that it could be something to do with firewall configurations either on your end or your contact's end. You may want to check those things.

    should be called msn light, but the feature to share the desktop, as the other guy stated is great for your friends and family members that need help with thir computers
