windows messenger won't close unless I close OE can be a pain, people see me online for a chat when I want to get on with work. Any ideas?

open messenger and click on tools/options/preferences/ and untick allow this program to run in the background. now open outlook express and go to tools/options/general and untick auto log on to windows messenger.

right click on the messenger icon, go to my status - and you can show urself as offline, busy, away, etc.

If you're reasonably confident with editing your registry, click here It gives you instrctions on how to remove Messenger completely from Outlook Express. OK, you no longer have your Messenger contacts listed in OE, but I just added their email addresses maually. Now I can check emails without being pestered
