Hi folks.

I recently installed MSN 6 and deleted Windows messenger. When I go into Outlook Express, I now cannot see my MSN contacts (if they are on line or not) on the left hand side along with my Outlook contacts.

What can I do to make them appear automatically.
OS Win XP Home

Cheers Smithie

Go to View>Layout and put a tick in Contacts.

Also go to Options>General and put a tick in Automatically logon on to Windows Messenger.

Thanks Susan B

Both items you refer to are ticked. I have my normal list of contacts showing in the left hand column of O E.

Its when I sign into MSN the icons showing who is on line or not, does not appear at the top of the list of contacts as has been the case previously.

When I used Windows Messenger they appeared,but since changing to MSN the icons are not appearing. Any clues??

Thanks Smithie

If you deleted Windows Messenger AFTER installing MSN you could try reinstalling MSN again and see if that helps.
