I changed my email address as part of my Msn passport and now all my contacts in Messenger appear offline and I appear offline to them. I believe I have MSM configured properly but to no avail.

    The problem of you not seeing them online might because each of your contacts might have to re-add you to their buddy list due to the email change. You appearing offline to them is probaly because you have imported your contacts but are not online? Check to make sure your not in the 'invisible' mode.

    Greetings, TWC_Cobra !

    Since you have a new email address, in essence you have a new account.  You need to contact each of your MSN contact and have them add your new account.

    Best wishes!
