Well people, I have manages to come across the most useful messaging tool on the face of the planet. It is called Miranda IM. It allows you to connect to ANY instant messaging network. ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Jabber, ...
The list goes on. This is a fantastic program and well worth the small wait to install.
This little program can check your mail, work as a multiple instant messenger and still only a tiny memory usage!! Only 9.0MB! Thats less that MSN messenger and it is running all the tasks you need!
