Can't get my IM to work

Somehow I can’t get it to work. Hopefully someone could help me out here.

I already created a JID (Jabber ID) (blablabla…
Now I wanted to import a MSN contact from my contacts, but when I click a folder, nothing happens.

After that I tried to add the contact manually:

althouh the contact is online via Messenger, I don’t see it via EmClient. Am I missing something? When I try to send a message, I see the message twice in the msg-box.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Finally… Had to read a lot of sites and test several servers before I understood how it works (partial).…

The pages that are referred to, within EmClient, are dead. That’s why it took me a long time to find it out.

I recommend “”. Works like a charm (finally).
