I haven't seen any other threads about this, so... as stated in the title, when I attempt to send offline messages using the newest version of aMSN, I am simply disconnected. With the previous version, I was, theoretically, able to send offline messages, but they weren't received by my contacts; with this version, all that happens is that I disconnect and it goes to the "reconnecting to server" interface (?). It also seems to take a little longer for the contact list to load with 0.98.9, which isn't necessarily a problem, just an observation.
PS If this information is relevant, I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.4...
PPS I've just remembered something else. Whenever I receive an e-mail and open Hotmail while aMSN is open, I "disappear offline", almost as though I'm invisible, but I'm still able to communicate with people (?!).
