I think that there is a problem using voice with Messenger. Myself and a friend have not been able to use it for sometime. We use Yahoo Messenger. click here

aubrey, i have tried to create an account in yahoo, but when trying to enter my post code, it is saying it is invalid. and asking for only 5 digits?

  AubreyS 20:06 27 Jan 2004

Try putting in 5 digits then. I just make up any postcodes.

Set up audio in Messenger for the kids and they have no problem talking to their friends so if there is a problem its not across the board.

damn, thanks bremner. can you tell me what i might be doing wrong with msn then?

All I did was ensure the microphone was working.

Then run the audio /video tuning wizard in Tools.

When you connect with someone you then click on Audio, the other person then has to accept the invitation and off you go.

Me and my dad have downloaded the latest version of MSN Messenger 6.1 and are using Logitech Webcams.

We are having this exact problem. Have used the tuning wizard and all is ok. But still no voice in MSN Messenger.

We are now using Yahoo Messenger 5.6 which seems to work fine.
