Use iMessage Mac with MSN Live Messenger?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got the beta version of iMessage and I like it a lot. I have previously used Adium and I have friends on so many chat services such as AIM, Yahoo, and Google Talk. Most of my friends are on Facebook Chat and MSN Live Messenger though. After posting on another forum I was given instructions that can be used to set up iMessage through Jabber. It worked very well but the person who responded said that MSN Live Messenger can also work through Jabber but the instructions he had didn't work. Has anyone been able to get iMessage to work with MSN Live Messenger through Jabber? Thanks.

Just to clarify, it's Messages, not iMessage. One's a program, the other's a protocol.

Since MSN works perfectly fine in iChat through Jabber, I'd imagine it remains so in Messages.

You could try this for easy setup. I'm not sure if it accepts Mountain Lion.

Worked for me. Thanks DrinkBrainJuice! Apple should have made the Messages app more complete by including this.
