Windows Live Messenger - Unable to create an account using an email address othe that a hotmail account

Hi. I have a few staff on a small SBS2003 network who signed up to Windows Messenger 7.5 with
non-hotmail email addresses ie abc@domain.com.

It worked fine for a couple of years but now if I try to add another user I am taken to a page that asks my to reeate a hotmail account.I don't want to use a hotmail account but my proper Email account. The same thing happens on Version 8.1. Does anyone know if this is possible...
