Okay, this has been annoying me for a while. Time I did something about it.

I am using MSN 7.5 and I have a few mobile contacts. Sometimes these guys are not online, yet they are shown as being online (because their mobile is supposedly online). I only want msn users to be shown online when they are using msn.

How can I do this? Could not find anything in MSN Plus! Maybe someone can help with this?

Wouldn't hiding them satisfy you? ;)

Cheers :)

Well... what I have done is grouped my friends by location. It is not grouped by status. My online contacts are shown online while those not online are shown in an auto-group called offline.

For some dumb reason, the mobile contacts are shown as being online when they are not actually online (and they use an ugly yellow msn icon yuk!)

I had the same problem.. Until I started using Gaim (http://gaim.sf.net)

I never found a way around it :(

Amsn has hybrid sorting which I liked!

I was using trillian for a few years. Tried GAIM... did not like it.

If you go Contacts>Sort Contacts By>Group Mobile Contacts Together, then the mobile contacts should be hidden in a seperate group
