MS just announced that Microsoft Live Messsenger will be replaced by Skype (no choice after March 15).

For details, please have a look here: Talk to your Messenger Contacts on Skype.

The point is that msn (email) is integrating Skype and not the other way around. The email will work as before, only the Messenger function is being replaced by Skype... Skype will NOT handle the email function.

Please, have her log on to her MSN account

Can she still send and receive email in the MSN account? If the answer is yes, then there will be no problems after March 15.

As I have repeatedly said: the only change in this whole affair is that messenger will no longer work, it has been replaced by Skype!

I got the same email from Microsoft. All my stuff still works!

That is the point I have been trying to explain:

Skype does not replace email, Messenger is replaced by Skype.
