It annoys the hell out of me that when you start MSN messenger its default start up is "online" which is a pain as it alerts people that you have come online, and should you not wish them to know it seems rude when you just click "busy"

Can the default be set to "busy" or "appear offline" that way you can see whos on first?

cheers

dont think that is possible. this is from the creator of msn plus:
Currently, you can't start Windows Messenger in Appear Offline mode. This is due to the fact that the Messenger server automatically sets you as "online" when you sign-in. I may add a feature to modify your status as soon as you sign-in in future versions of my software, however, in the case of "Appear Offline", your contacts will still be able to know that you signed-in as they'll probably see you online one or two seconds.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
