Please be a little more specific regarding the steps that lead up to the problem.

This seems to be an issue currently with aMSN. A friend of mine uses it, however I use emesene instead, and I am able to sign in just fine.

May I suggest trying to run emesene temporarily, to see if it's just aMSN that isn't working, you can install it by running "sudo apt-get install emesene" as it's in the Ubuntu repositories.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Thanks man I tried Emesene earlier but it wouldn't show my contacts. Seems to work fine now though.
