    Hi there. had some trouble with WLM, couldn't get signed in. that was resolved (thanks!) but I am having a new problem. I cannot connect to a contact with a gmail address. I added her, and she shows up in my contact list but only appears as offline. We were both on line, but she showed as offline. then it suddenly changed to Mobile, but I could still not connect and chat with her. Other contacts popped up as available and I could chat with them. Is it the gmail that is the problem?

    any suggestions?

    is she signing using a Google Talk or using MSN?? i dont know if it is possible to chat to Gmail users thru Google Talk.
    The only way is if she registers her email with .NET Passport and signs in using WLM. did she do that already?

    she is signed in through WLM. We had no problems until the whole issue started with my WLM. I couldn't get it to let me sign in, and now it is back doing that again. I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it. Now for some reason when I sign in it comes up saying it is ebuddy, but I did not use ebuddy??
    I don't know why it stopped working and started to do all these odd things. My son uses the same computer but has his own account/profile, and he is not having these problems with WLM.
