    OK, I just installed WLM for the first time, and am able to chat with
    friends associated with my Facebook account. Facebook even has its own
    category in WLM. However, I am having trouble communicating with
    people who have hotmail accounts.

    How do I communicate with them?
    Do I need to sign up with hotmail to chat with them?
    My Windows Live account is associated with my GMail account. Is that
    going to pose a problem?

    I'm thoroughly confused as to the difference between my Windows Live
    account, the different networks WLM reports people as belonging to,
    and what it is I need to sign up with to talk to who.

    Any help would be graciously appreciated.
