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 !!

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.
