Hey I've had this problem since yesterday with both aMSN and Microsoft Messenger so I Imagine its not a problem of the software itself and has to do more with the new characteristics of the microsoft network...
This is what happens: every time I've logged in my nickname is reset to my name in my account (Chuck) so I change it again but when I log off and then in again, its back to the old one. In Microsoft messenger my email is displayed rather than my nickname. So I know its not aMsn's fault but is there any way to resolve this?
thanks

Damian

@rewak: your problem is different. You are having problems with your contact's nicks, and he's having with his nick.
@cberryboy: aMSN uses a service of roaming that "copy your nick" directly from MSN server. That mean if you go to another computer with aMSN, you'll have the same nick, subnick and display picture. As you say, with the Microsoft Messenger you're getting your e-mail adress, that means there are something strange with MSN server.
Anyway, I'll try to find a solution, or create, (I see a lot of people are in the same situation) a plugin that set automatically your nick name when you log in (When you log in the plugin changes automatically your nickname to a pre-set nick or the last nick used). But don't say victory xD. I am in test period in the university, so I'll take long time. Keep searching for solutions. I hope another user in the forum can help. They're smarter than me Tongue

I'm having the same issue here, both my nickname gets set back to my passport account name, and all my offline contacts show their email address rather than their last used nickname.

Guessing this is the same issue as http://www.amsn-project.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7360.

Assuming from the other thread that it's MSN issue so there's not much you can do, but if its any use: I'm in the UK and using 0.99b on both Linux and Windows, and it started happening today.

[EDIT]
As a work around, you can go to http://www.passport.net, sign in, and go to Profile Details -> Edit (Under the Name option) and set your first name to be whatever you want your nickname to be.

Autonick is the plugin that I'll create soon (I hope Sad ). It'll change automatically your nick when you log in. So, if we log in as, for example me Nicolas, the plugin will change it to the nick I want.


Now, the bug came to Argentina, so I am Nicolás now =(. Fuck you Microsoft!

And yes, I am start thinking the problem is with Roaming of aMSN. The official WLM clients doesn't read the name from MSN server. They saves your nick. MSN is ownding us =(

this looks like a server issue everyone is having, hopefully it will get fixed soon by microsoft, be patient, if it's not fixed, then we'll find a workaround for it.
