    hey. i need help. is your messenger 7.5 working? mine dosent seem to work.
    when i sign in it says that " Msn messenger had made several failed attempt
    to sign you in.Your firewall may be blocking messenger from connecting to the
    service.Please review your firewall settings. see the retailers instructions
    for more information." below there is this number : 80072ee6

    i have checked my firewall settings, my firewall is off. furthermore, when i
    run the msn messenger connection troubleshooter all the individual test
    results has a green tick beside it except for wireless. i do not know what
    that means. when progress is completed, repair button is clickable. when i
    click thr repair button nothing exactly happens.

    Then i go to tools>options>connection. over there my connection status says
    that i am currently NOT connected to.NET Messenger Service. A refresh button
    is there but nothing happens when i click it. right below is connection
    settings. an Advanced Settings button is there. i click it & it brings me to
    Internet Explorer Connection Settings screen. there are 3 tests here. the
    first is a TCP test.

    My Tcp Test says that : Success, you can connect to Msn messenger service.
    the 2nd test has a few things to fill in. my SOCKS is already been filled is
    but i do not know if they are right. my username & password blanks are blank
    so i do not know what to fill up & when i click test, is says :Connecting to
    the proxy... We are unable to connect (8007274D).the third test is a HTTP
    Proxy server one. however the HTTP Blacks are grey( cant type in them) again
    the username & password blanks are blank & i have no clue on what to fill in.
    However when i click test it says : Connected, Verifying ability to send data
    now...Success, you can connect to the MS messenger service.

    After all this i still cant sign in my msn messenger 7.5. i have reinstalled
    it a few times but no avail. all this did not happen with my previous MSN
    version.

    It is all so confusing. please if you can help me i wold be grateful. anyone
    who has a clue please reply me or e-mail me jellysotong13@hotmail.com.Thank
    You.

    "Voice Clip" is pretty cool. Cooler if the recipient didn't have to press
    "play", tho
  4. Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger (More info?)

    Hi,

    Actually you shouldn't have to as long as the 'Play voice clips automatically when they are
    received' option is checked within the Tools menu, Options, Messages category.
