    Overview
    Messenger for Mac 6.0.1 makes it easy to take advantage of the full power of instant messaging, and it is a Universal application built to run on both PowerPC-based and Intel-based Macs. If you encountered a sign-in issue with Messenger for Mac 6.0, you should upgrade to Messenger for Mac 6.0.1.

    By using Messenger for Mac users can:
    • Chat with Yahoo! Messenger contacts
    • Add a status message that your personal contacts can see
    • Share what you are listening to in iTunes with your personal contacts
    • Create, send, and receive custom emoticons with personal contacts
    • Send and receive custom animated emoticons with personal contacts
    • Search for conversation histories using Spotlight
    • Check the spelling in your instant messages

    By using Messenger for Mac, you can see when your friends, family, coworkers, and associates at other companies are online and then communicate with them instantly. Messenger for Mac offers two types of communication services — a personal account and a corporate account.

    A personal account works with the Windows Live Messenger service. Contacts that you add to your personal account include friends and family members. Instant message conversations with users are not limited to users who have Messenger for Mac installed on their computers. You can also have instant message conversations with Yahoo! Messenger users.

    A corporate account uses the Microsoft Office Live Communications Server service. Contacts that you add to your corporate account include coworkers who are in the same company as you and associates at other companies. Instant message conversations with other corporate account users are not limited to corporate users who have Messenger for Mac installed on their computers. With the federation features enabled on Live Communications Server, users can also have instant message conversations with users who have other instant messaging services, such as AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Yahoo! Messenger, and iChat users who are signed in with AOL accounts.

    I don't think there's anyone who still uses this awful app.

    I used it for a day when Proteus refused to connect to the MSN network. It wasnt too bad, but its very laggy in normal use.
