Everybody has hotmail account, don’t they? I created my first email account in Hotmail 9 Years ago. MSN Hotmail and Yahoo were the heroes of free web mail system at that time, and still they are. Later in 2004, Gmail showed up with large email space capability. The only famous messenger was ICQ. Later Hotmail introduced MSN messenger, now they’ve named it Windows Live Messenger which we are using at the current date.
Since you have lots of email account in several domains, it is necessary to run their own messenger. Try to log in using your Gmail or Yahoo account, messenger will return with 80048821 error saying, Windows Live ID or Password is incorrect, because Gmail is not domain of MSN.
But after following this trick, you won’t have to open install multiple web messengers. Let met guide you how you can access Windows Live Messenger using your own email account which is not a domain of MSN. You’ll be able to login using Gmail, Yahoo or any email account you have.
