you mean a third party add-on?

how can MS be so stupid to not allow this ?

Yahoo does, and Trillian does....

This is such basic stuff.....

sorry to spew, it's not your fault !!

;-)

thanks,

It isn't possible to change other people's names only your own 'friendly name', in order to do this you will need to either await a new release of MSN or install a 3rd party add-on e.g. MSN Messenger plus which gives you this feature.
