    I've tried exactly the same thing, uninstalled, re-downloaded (again it took ages) and reinstalled but the damn thing still won't let me back in.

    Their server status shows that they're "experiencing problems" at the moment.

    I managed to get back on soon after posting above there..its 20:54 here (GMT). I wonder if Microsoft actually know anything about it, or were just doing "maintenance" on their servers

    Well, typically when their service is down their "MSN Messenger Network Status" page mysteriously doesn't work either. Other times it just says "Everything is working fine."

    But MSN has a lot of issues.

    Unfortunatly, even if you use a different IM client, like trillian instead of MSN messenger, you are still using the same port/protocol to connect to their service
