MSN Messenger 7.5 – Helpful Hints #3

Q: I get a connection error 8XXXXXXX when signing in to Messenger and don’t understand what it means. How can I fix this?
 
A: Read the various error message shown here and then follow the steps given to solve it.
 
Q: Can I remove the ring tone for voice invitations?
 
A: Yes – read this.
 
Q: Is there a keyboard shortcut for voiceclips?
 
A: Yes! Press and Hold F2 while you are recording, then release F2 to send the voiceclip. More on Voiceclips.
 
Q: Why won’t dynamic backgrounds load?
 
A: Make sure you have Flash Player installed on your system. If you try to send a dynamic background to someone not using Messenger 7.5, they will only get a stationary version of the background. They will need to upgrade to v7.5 in order to have this feature.
 
Now some more advanced stuff 🙂
 
Q: Contact cards, DDP’s and Winks all seem slow to load. Is there any way to speed them up?
 
A: You can try installing the latest Flash Player Beta after having installed the version of Flash Player I linked above.
 
Q: File transfers always seem to go so slowly but I know both people have fast internet connections. Is there anyway to speed them up?
 
A: Firstly make sure that if you are behind a router or firewall that Messenger is allowed to open the ports it needs. You can read more about this on the MSN help page here.
 
In order to make sure the file transfer goes direct, and not via the MSN servers, try sending a voiceclip a short while before you start the file transfer. This will start the direct connection, and should result in a faster file transfer. Note that direct connections remain active for a maximum of 4 hours.
