There is no Mac Messenger 5.0, unless you're talking about Microsoft's Messenger.
In either case, both won't support webcams.

Mac Messenger installed smoothly on 8.6 but I receive the same problem, i.e. class NilObjectException. Auto shut-down alternates between that and Error Type 2. Please help.

Adium isn't Classic Compatible, Mac Messenger is, which is probably it's main reason of excistance
you aren't forced to use it on OS X, but if you're on Classic there isn't much of another choice except for Mac Messenger if you still want to be able to connect to the MSN Network.

Justifying a program lacking basic resources such as lack of international characters by sying that's because there's no competition in Classic is just lame. Sorry for being rude, but it is.

I, for one, am glad you still support Classic. My OS 9.2.2 works fine for my needs on my iMac DV. I will not upgrade to OS X until the time comes for me to buy a new Mac.
Your Mac Messenger works better for me than MS's native version.

So, thank you very much for supporting Classic.

@1 There still are some people that use Classic.

I for one, dual boot classic with OS X. It's faster to play games on my G3 300Mhz (i'm getting a new mac soon, but still i like Classic).

I've been using Mac Messenger through a few versions now with varying success. I downloaded and installed this new v.3.5.3.

I tried using the sprocket-looking button's menu to quit the app and got this error message: An exception of class OutOfBoundsException was not handled. Application must shutdown.

I also cannot get it to sign in automatically. I select my account in preferences, but when I click to close the preferences window, the designated account de-selects and the window stays open until I click to close it again. In other words, I cannot select my account and get the sign-in option to accept it. This wasn't a problem with the last few versions.

I've also been having a problem with the mail notification insisting that I have 14 messages in my junk mail when it is empty. This problem has been with me through the last 2 or 3 versions. I've tried deleting my preferences to no avail.

I just bought office 2004. I am having a hard time installing MSN messenger. It keeps saying there are newer versions available. Once I have downloaded them, and the blue bar scrolls across, an icon on my desktop appears that says Messenger511.dmg. WHAT DO I DO NEXT ? Any help is appreciated.

Depends on what Mac OS you are running. If you are using MAc OS 9.2.2 or lower, you cannot use what you've downloaded. The .dmg file extention is a disk image file (installer) that you can only open and run in Mac OS X. MS quit supporting Mac OS 9.2.2 (and lower) a long time ago.

Before getting my new Intel iMac, I was using this Mac Messenger instead of Micro$oft's own client because theirs always gave me problems like those described in other posts here.

After downloading Mac Messenger, you should have a file on your desktop that is labelled:

MacMessenger354.sit

If it has a .txt suffix after the .sit suffix, remove the .txt suffix. Then you can open the file/install the software.

or, the .txt isn't there, and it still opens a word document.

Yup, I'm having hte same problem.

File Transfer is not enabled yet, we're in the process of getting it to work still...
as of the random quitting... try increasing Mac Messenger's ram under file > Get Info > Memory

Pros: very simple to use. Cons: it's a featureless, undeveloped messenger. Infact, i see more tools in my inbox!!!Go Adium or amsn, these two messengers show progress somewhat. Still,video lacks in all! What's going on?

If needed v3.5 is still available on sourceforge.net
if that one doesn't make some of those problems go away, then i don't know anymore

I posted the previous troubleshooting message.

In follow-up, I downloaded and installed MSN Messenger to compare. MSN messenger gave me the same 14 junk mail message as this did, so that at least is an MSN/Hotmail problem and not a Mac Messenger one.

I deleted the MSN and kept the Mac Messenger, although I may return to the previous MM 3.5 as you suggested.
