Question for MSN Hackers: why can't I see some offline buddies display names?

    If you have just added the affected contacts, then that's
    the reason why you can't see their nickname... I've found
    out that in order for a nickname to be 'recorded', both
    users have to be online at the same time... after
    the 'mutual contact' (if you want to call it that), you
    should see their nickname correctly, even if they're
    offline. However, if some of the nicknames affected are
    those of people you have spoken with in the past, then
    that's beyond my expertise...

    I hope that this was helpful...

    If someone is online, and goes off line, try to sign out MSN, and quit the
    program. Restart it. You see for this person also the email address?

    I guess, when someone goes off line you continu to see the nick, but as
    soon as you stop the program, and restart, it's gone?
