I appear offline to my contacts but I'm online

Discussion in 'Windows Live Messenger' started by amazing_red_fan, Mar 23, 2010.

  1. For some reason I appear offline to all my contacts and everytime someone
    sends me a message I get the message telling me I recieved an offline
    message...but I am for sure logged in. I've already made sure my status wasnt
    set to appear offline and I dont know what else to do. Please help =( I have
    used MSN/WLM for years now and never had a problem until this. Thanks

    I'm getting the same thing, it seems to fix itself when I go on Window
    Web Messenger, but Windows Live Messenger, my contacts say that I appea
    offline. Though it seems to only be with some of my contacts who see m
    as offline, while others see me as online.

    I'm assuming this is some kind of glitch

  3. Two of my friends are having the same issue..... Apparently this problem
    is common....does anyone have a solution to this?.... Only difference is
    that one has Vista and the other has XP. I know this forum is for
    windows 7 but this is the only place I have seen this posted...and very
    recent at that....

    What I did was sign in on that website as well as the regular windows live (if you have the newest windows live you can sign on in two places). So everyone could see me as online again, and I could use windows live as I normally do with the web messenger running in the background. I hope we get a solution soon.

  6. Greetings,

    It's a server problem, will probably be fixed by tomorrow sometime.

    It's not a new problem either, I'm surprised you haven't seen it before.

    I am using VISTA 64-bit and I am having the same issue. The world sees me as offline, but I am actually online. I have reinstalled as well as repaired. Nothing is working.

  9. Hi,

    The only thing that's been proven to show the majority of contacts online is Hotmail's web
    messenger. Everything else is hit or miss right now.

    Hi, Im experiencing this problem right now.
    But this was posted in March, so Im not sure if its another server problem.

    yeah, I got the same problem under Windows 7.

    I been having this problem for over 2 weeks now. Could it really be a serve problem?

    I think I found the solutions as I had the same problem. I had my PC and my laptop on different dates, i.e. by error I turned the date on the PC one day back. On the PC I appeared offline, and on the laptop, with the right date, i appeared online.

    That means if the date on the PC is not correct, and set to the past, then one appears offline.
