    this apears to be how trillian handles multiple msn accounts so i recommend msn users to stay away from this one.

    http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/forum...by=&sortorder=

    All my msn accounts have had their contact lists emerged. This is non reversable and when i log in to each msn account using msn messenger i get the same contact list as the others (meaning one big contact list)

    No more work account, friend account, looking for babes account..etc...

    each fricken account has all the contacts merged so it's like logging into the same account.
    No more special hidden account used for just my friends

    they are all merged

    man i'm pissed at this program.

    oh.. and each contact on your list has been givin all other misc account into to add you.

    example
    1 contact on 1 msn account
    i have 6 msn
    the contact gets 5 notifications (whatever@hotmail is requesting to be added to your list)

    if they add me they ask me (who are you) as soon as they get online.

    Meaning - you get a frickin popup requesting that so and so added you to their contact list etc....(do you wish to allow this user to see your online staus?)

    arghhh!!!!!

    I am seriously thinking of closing my msn accounts and starting over.

    anyone know how i can delete multiple users in msn?

    You mean delete your own accts or contacts that you have setup for those accts? What I did within Trillian is just to block the users I didn't want to see me (from a previous life ) but I created a group calling it TZrs and just moved all you fellas into that group.

    that is one serious drawback of Trillian. i use it primarily for AIM (which makes no difference if multiple accounts have the same list, simply b/c of AIMs composition of not asking for verification before adding someone to a list).

    unfortunately.. i cant really think of a solution for you right now. sorry man.

    thanks guys!

    you see the problem is sorting the contacts for each account which nowe have over 100 contacts each

    100 x 6 = 600 contacts to delete or sort.

    this is way to time consuming

    try to delete a contact in msn and you will see it's no fun..

    now try to remember the contacts email address and wonder do you delet this person from this account?

    i'm pissed cause of the 60+ from my work account are now mixed

    I'll have to look when I get home to see if there is a way to do this.

    i've uninstalled trillian and will not be trying that software out ever!....

    ok maybe one day when i am not busy......or when i feel like sorting some accounts.,

    I guess it gave me a warning when i added my accounts but i was in a rush and got the dialog box mixed up for something else,

    the damage is done and unreversable.

    Electronic Punk at osnn.net said it happened to him ages ago and a search on google showed frustated users everywhere.

    I'm going back to messenger2
    www.messenger2.com

    for education I would gladly share my experiences with the hope that this prevents our members from being cautious and preventing these types of disastors.

    if you guys have managed to get your msn contacts merged you can try to sort it out simpler by logging into your hotmail and you can choose the contact tab. from there you can check the contacts to delete faster.
