…this didn’t quite fit into any other category…
We’ve been working on bringing MSN Chat back for some time, we now have a working product that may be able to be integrated into Messenger.
Due to the requirement of Internet Explorer, we’re using a separate application to host the MSN Chat Control. We do plan on having an IE version soon.

We’re interested in working on bringing back MSN Messenger, too. We have a custom server and a Microsoft Server. Not sure we’ll go down this road though.
A clever take on an old friend . Perhaps I missed it, but I don’t recall seeing anyone doing this previously by hosting the COM control in a separate winform app (as opposed to hosting IE instead).
Small side note, it’s been a while since I’ve seen the chat control, it’s funny how some of the aesthetic fits in with the current Windows styles (ie. curved rectangles).
thank you very much for your project

i can drop an idea if you gonna be occupied with the project :
''connect"" WLM2012 (msnp21) with the Skype (if msnp24 still exists https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Notification_Protocol) in order to use the official ms server again–even the basic use like chatting.
too pity he abandoned the project…
what do you mean ? who leaked his ip?
the screenshot: MSN has detected that you are cconnected from this chat session from the IP address 192.168.2.197, and Couldn’t resolve your hostname; using your IP address instead
Well, Duh. Every IRC server does it, Not just MSN.
