Can you run 2 messenger profiles at the same time?

Does anyone know if it is possible to have more than 1 messenger profile logged in at once? Are there any programs that facilitate this?

No I have more than 1 MSN messenger profile and would like to be able to run them logged in at the same time

No, (at least i dont think so), whenever i have tried it says something like you are already signed into MSN Messenger as *************, if you continue, you will be signed out.

However you can be signed into msn messenger and check a different account via the web site (hotmail)

If you have two computers on a network sharing one internet connection, each one can be signed in at the same time.

There is something on this site from memory that allows you to do just what you want.

I used to have two ICQ conversations running at a time without any problems, but was pointed in the direction of the free version of Trillian, which will cope with virtually all messenger services.

It's well worth installing.

Yes you can. If you have windows messenger and msn messenger, they will both run independently. So log msn in first with one profile, then log the other in with the other profile. It works fine.

paperman 27, bet you had auto login? That happened to me with autologin but if you click the other option log in as diff user while your other one is running it will work.
