Time to ditch ICQ, but...

Discussion in 'Windows MSN Messenger' started by Peter Eriksson, Dec 8, 2003.

  1. Hello everyone,

    since I first started using "MSN Messenger", things have got better and
    better. I really enjoy the most recent version (6.1). In fact, I like it so
    much I think the time has come to ditch my first instant messenger program
    ("ICQ"). Now, I have a small problem (and I bet I share this problem with a
    lot of you guys). Many of the ICQ-contacts I have don't use MSN yet. As I
    don't see it as my task to convince them do stop using ICQ just because I
    ask them to, I'm hoping there's another way to resolve this.

    Here's what I'd like to know: are there any "ICQ-plugins" for Messenger that
    will allow me to send and receive messages from the ICQ network via MSN
    Messenger? (no, I'm not interested in programs such as JabberWocky and
    Trilian - mainly because I like MSN Messenger and its
    video/audio/application sharing features)

    Kind regards,

  2. Greetings Peter,

    No, I haven't seen anything like this that would connect Messenger up to ICQ contacts, you'll
    have to use a separate client (like one of the ones you mentioned) in order to stay on with
