Can there be more than one instance of msn messenger open at the same time?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have two different hotmail accounts. Some of my contacts email me at one
    account and the rest email me on the other account. I was wondering if I
    could log in simultaneously to both accounts using MSN Messenger 7.0 with
    messenger plus (having two copies of MSN Messenger 7.0 open at the same
    time) without logging out and then logging in to the other account so I
    could chat with the others who email/contact me on the other account.

    I could direct all contacts to just one email account and close the other
    account but I'm try to keep the contacts separated. If I am online I would
    like some contacts to know I'm online (not busy, not away, not on the phone,
    etc.) and available to chat, but other contacts I don't want to appear
    online at all unless I want to initiate a conversation with them.

    Thanks to all who reply,

  3. Unfortunately, even if you have multiple instances of messenger 7 running,
    you cannot login to both accounts simultaneously using that method.

    That said, there are a few ways to do it if you don't mind not using
    messenger 7 for both sessions.

    For example, you could use MSN Web Messenger (located at ) and Messenger 7 at the same time, provided you
    have the automatic passport sign in option disabled in Messenger 7...

    On the same token, any IM program that connects you to MS passport can be
    used to access two accounts simultaneously (read: in conjunction with
    another account signed in from MSN Messenger)
