    I am fortunate enough to beta test the new Windows Live Messenger. However,
    I can only use it for ONE of my Hotmail accounts. I was wondering if anyone
    can tell me if I can have Windows Live Messenger Beta AND MSN Messenger
    (7.5?) running at the same time?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    To the best of my knowledge, no. I suspect that it isn't too hard to circumvent,
    but on the same PC, only one version should exist/run. Someone else may offer
    better details on this.
    As a beta tester you will eventually be granted "invites" and you can invite
    your other identities to the test.

    I wouldn't test anything if I don't have access to MS's private newsgroup

    If you've still got some left I'll give it a go, since things area pretty
    quiet on the beta front for me at the moment. 8-( Reply address is good if
    you do the modification at the bottom of my sig.

    Thanks muchly.

    Sent. I'm out now so when you get some invite some of the people below whom
    I've not sent 'em to will you? <g> I'll reply when I send 'em and I'll only
    reply when I send them. First come first serve and only as I'm given them.
    I'm far too lazy to invite myself and then make mass amounts of them.
    Besides, that'd be cheating in my opinion. Actually I'm not sure if invited
    people get to send invites or not?

    Share the wealth (here please first if you don't mind) when you get invites
    of your own.

    Thanks mate.
    Will do, still saying I don't have any invites yet, so we'll wait and see
    what happens.

    Thanks again!

    Nope. I'm out so it was sent. Look in your spam folder. One invite each. You
    *should* already have it but it's likely in your spam folder.

    They don't forward a copy to us unfortunately otherwise I'd resend it. Maybe
    they'll stock us with new invites today?

    To all of you, when I get more... I'll send 'em when I get 'em in the order
    they came in. I understand that people were selling/buying them on eBay but
    if you'll wait long enough and I get more than I'll happily contribute them
    here in the order that they came in at.
