      Angry IM problems. ''the following message could not be delivered-a connection error occ..'

      hi,

      iv tried using microsoft messenger for mac and adium (another instant messaging app.) and i am havin problems with messages not being sent. i keep gettin ''could not send the following message-a connection error occured'' or something along those lines. on both programmes! drives me insane because it totally ruins the conversation and i get called ignorant by the other person for not replying!

      any one else have similar problems?

      at this point in time its so annoying im going to end up ringing sky and cancelling! my primary use for the internet is IM!

      any help would be much appreciated.

      cheers

      rick

      if your cooker stopped working would you phone up your gas supplier to cancel ?

      (not having a go, i just cannot understand the reason for wanting to cancel)

      Re: IM problems. ''the following message could not be delivered-a connection error oc

      That is one helpful error message...




      I see this problem listed a lot on Google. Adium in particular. Is it every message, or just some?

      Here and here

      I don't use either program, but if somewhere in the settings you can choose NOT to use a proxy server, then try that to see what happens. Also, make sure you are using HTTP method.

      If that fails, you could try to change your ID from R.I.C.K.Y. perhaps that may be a cause?

      Re: IM problems. ''the following message could not be delivered-a connection error oc

      As I say, I don't use the programs, but I have seen it suggested that under settings in adium (and presumably msn) you can choose to send the messages via http (port 80) instead of the usual IM port, and that this seems to have fixed the problem for a few people.
