Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this for me. I'm a hotmail user but i have friends who use yahoo mail and msn messenger doesn't allow yahoo addresses to be added to your contact list. Likewise yahoo messenger doesn't allow hotmail contacts. Simply put, is there any way i can have contacts from both yahoo and hotmail in the same program?

It could be done with Trillian or Gaim or some other program like that but my dilemma is that they require you to have a hotmail address to add hotmail contacts and a yahoo address to add yahoo contacts ect. And call me fussy but i don't want another email address, i already have 2. So if anyone can suggest how i can talk to my yahoo contacts WITHOUT a yahoo address (or vice versa with hotmail) it would be much appreciated. Is there a truly universal program that allows this? Or is there perhaps some way to alter msn to allow foreign contacts to be added?
Thanks
