    I have just stared using Live Messenger for a course I am taking. I
    generally just view my mail in a browser or on my phone. Are there benefits
    to using Live Messenger that I don't know about? It seems like it took me a
    lot of extra steps to set this up. Thanks,

    I don't use IM for viewing email. Mostly a stand alone email client;
    primarily Pegasus Mail, sometimes Mozilla Thunderbird. Or Windows Live Mail
    for a couple of Hotmail accounts.

    Windows Live Messenger is for Instant Messaging; sort of like real-time
    conversation over a telephone. I've shared photos, and web camera views, as
    well, if you like that sort of thing. Both sides require a web cam for video
    conversations to work.
