    I'm getting this message constantly. About 1 in every 20 messages goes
    through if I'm really lucky. Other people on my list are seeing this. The
    service status says everything is fine, so what's going on?

  2. Greetings James,

    Have you or your contacts been using handwriting recently? If so, you'll need to completely
    close and restart Messenger in order to send messages again.

    Nope.. No handwriting usage. I've also tried restarting, rebooting, etc.. No
    luck. I was under the impression that this was a more widespread issue since
    lots of people on my list have been seeing it. I haven't been logged in since
    Friday (due to a lengthy power cut), so I'll try again today and see if it's
    still happening.

  4. Jonathon, I have begun to notice this, and wondered if you had a fix?

    I too have been getting this message. Just started today. I 'm havin
    trouble fiding info on how to fix this matter. Only about half of my
    messeges will go through. My Windows messenger will work flawlessly but the
    MSN will not. I obviously prefer the MSN messenger over wthe windows one,
    doesn't everyone? ;)
    can somone please followup?
    i am using Version 7.5 (Build 7.5.0324) by the way, in case that helps..

    thanks, Doyle

    I'm geting this too - and it's driving me nuts. For me it drops at random
    intervals - and then just picks up again a few minutes later.
    Sometimes I close the window - sometimes I just keep trying.
    There seems to be a bit of correlation with whether I'm downloading files at
    the time. But it happens when there are no files being downloaded as well.

    apologies, just realised how old this thread was

    but im getting this problem all the time nonetheless - just upgraded to
    windows live messenger.

  12. Greetings,

    Are they actually set to offline (aka invisible) when you're speaking to them? are you set
    to Appear Offline? If so, then the server which carries offline messages can be extremely

    There may also be some connection problems occurring, especially if you're using a proxy or
    something similar -- usually signing off and back on may assist in solving that.

    Also, this can happen if you've been using the handwriting/drawing feature in which case
    you're need to completely close Messenger and restart it.
