    I use MSN & Yahoo chat account.
    Is there any multi-messenger that can enable me to chat through both accounts simultaneously.
    I have tried IMvite & EM but they are not able to send or recieve files, they don't even show any prompt for accepting file.
    Pl help

    Have u tried Trillian .. its good .. or else try meebo.com .. its a site that allows u to log into yahoo, hotmail, icq and gmail accounts simultaneously and it doesnt even requires the messengers to be installed.

    I chat very rarely. On these rare occasions, I use Yahoo, and msn (very rarely and only because it is installed automatically with winxp)

    then its of no use, i want one multi messenger that is capable of doing all things as the individual messengers can.
    It should also be having a good look like of trillian.

    @ashfame, the advantage is dat any 2 gaim users can exchange files, even if one is on yahoo and other on msn
