    Hello John,

    Can you help us understand if there will be a new version of Windows
    Messenger for Vista, or if SIP will be integrated into Windows Live
    Messenger? Surely there must be something in the works..

    What is the solution for a customer running Vista and wanting to connect to
    their Corporate SIP server to communicate internally?

  2. Greetings Trevor,

    I'm afraid there is not, Windows Live Messenger which used to be MSN Messenger, dropped the
    SIP functions back in 2002 (version 5). It is purely a consumer product.

    The SIP functions from Windows Messenger were spun into Office Communicator and you'll need
    to use that if you wish to connect to SIP-based communications services in Vista.
