ALL Contacts in MSN Messenger appear offline after email change

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 solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
