Windows Live Messenger

I've just changed my ISP. I was registered with Windows Live Messenger with my old ISP, obviously under a different e-mail, with my new ISP I have a new address. Should I create a new Messenger account, or will it still work with my old e-mail address?

Suck it and see, if the old one doesn't work then create a new one, use Messenger as you used to and if it doesn't work, you know the solution.

Thanks terryf, it was pretty obvious I suppose and I should have realised it. Gracias pal.

You should be able to change your e-mail address and still keep your original msn account, if you start a new msn account you will have to reset everything again.
There should be something in the settings on msn to allow you to do this just a matter of looking and finding out!! can't remember my self as had to do it last year as i changed isp myself. Hope it helps if not...oh well...!!!

When you connect with to the Internet with your new ISP, just sign into WLM with your old hotmail address as normal. It will just sign in like it did before as it isn't linked to your ISP.
