are you using your gmail details to sign onto windows live ??

basically all you have to do, is register whatever email you want to use for live messenger (or any messenger which uses windows live IDs) to a windows live id.. uhh. do i make any sense here?

basically you just need to sign the email up to a windows live id account for it to be used with live messenger.

go to this link: https://accountservices.passport.net/reg.srf?fid=RegCredOnlyEASI&ru=https://accountservices.passport.net/ppnetworkhome.srf%3Fvv%3D500%26lc%3D1033&cru=https://accountservices.passport.net/ppnetworkhome.srf%3fvv%3d500%26lc%3d1033&sl=1&lc=1033

i hope i helped.
