Dear everyone,

Due to a recent change on the Microsoft servers, everyone running version 0.95 or earlier will get an "Invalid username / password" error message if they try to connect over port 80 or with a proxy or if they disabled the SSL connection On Windows, go to directory C:\Program files\amsn and place the amsn_dev.tar.gz in there. Rename the directory scripts to scripts-0.95 , then extract amsn_dev.tar.gz , it will create a directory called msn . Rename this to scripts and you should be ready.

On Mac, please go to for instructions.

On Linux, extract and compile it:
tar xvfz amsn_dev.tar.gz
cd msn
sudo make install

  • More technically, the servers suddenly disabled non-SSL connections. On aMSN, when using port 80 or HTTP proxy, we wanted it to use port 80 exclusively and we disabled SSL because it uses port 443. After this change, we re-enabled it on the CVS version.
