    Hi all

    Is there any way you can change the listed name of one of your contacts within MS Messenger?

    If you add a contact via the e-mail search, what appears within your contact list is that very same e-mail name. This obviously is no good for recognition as many people do not use their names in their hotmail/messenger e-mail.

    Any advice?

    John... I think its going to be, they have to tell you their user name or when they approve it when they receive e-mail.. asking for permission to be granted for you to have them enabled on your contact list
