1. These do not use secure login, so we recommend using a separate password, which you can manage in
your Legacy Settings.
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 can work on Windows XP, they have some incompatibilities out of the box because of
the way older systems handle SSL, as such, we recommend using a newer operating system or trying the same fix
as MSN 5/6/7/8 (point 2)
6. MSN 1 only supports login on
@hotmail.com, however simply enter your username without
@escargot.chat and ignore the @hotmail.com part.
