1. Requires "Old MSN support" option.
Beware: MSN 1/2/3/4 do not have secure login at the moment. It's recommended that you only use "Old MSN
support" with an account that has a throwaway password.
2. MSN 5/6/7/8 and WLM '09 work on Windows XP and Vista, but have issues logging in due to known incompatibilities with the HTTPS protocols between the server
and the affected OSes and us being unable to tweak our setup to effectively support those systems. Refer to this
guide for a fix.
3. MSN 7 supports receiving offline messages (OIMs), but can't send them to others.
4. Only 8.1.0178 and 8.5 are known to work; others might not.
5. While WLM 8 and '09 work on Windows XP, it is ill-advised to use them on that platform in a vanilla setting as they relies on HTTPS for several core functions
outside of login (a few major ones being group/contact management, roaming profiles, and group chats in WLM '09's case) and without applying a reliable fix to
your system, changes you make while logged in might not sync over.
6. MSN 1 only supports login on
@hotmail.com accounts by design (we are working on a patch!).
