Messenger for Mac 5.0 makes it easy to take advantage of the full power of instant messaging. Messenger for Mac offers two types of communication services- a personal account and a corporate account. A personal account works with the MSN Messenger service on the Microsoft Passport Network. Contacts that you add to your personal account will include friends and family members. A corporate account uses the Microsoft Office Live Communications Server service and can include contacts who use other instant messaging services, such as AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Yahoo Messenger, and iChat users who are signed in with AOL accounts.
New features in 5.0 include: The brushed steel skin, great new icons and new ""Personal"" and ""Corporate"" tabs make this dual-purpose program just as stylish and intuitive as other Mac programs. Chat securely behind your corporate firewall with Live Communications Server. Maximize communication while keeping control of critical company information. Use the same program to chat with contacts outside of your company across a variety of popular IM networks including Yahoo, AOL, AIM, MSN and iChat. Control the status of your personal and business accounts by synchronizing them or setting one to busy while the other one indicates you are online.
