Summary: MSN sometimes don\'t deliver messages
Sometimes MSN here don't deliver messages when I'm
talking. The message gets sent, but after a while my
fried says that he didn't receive anything.
I try that using a lot of linux distributions, and get
the same error.
This is not often, it happens on about 5% os the
messages i send.
Only on MSN. Gtalk protocol works perfectly.
And a lot of times, too, I get the "message timeout"
error, then I have to close and open the IM windows to

I see exactly this behavior with Google Talk and GAIM. I'd say
it's less than 5% of messages, and once it happens then no
more of my messages are sent. I receive messages just fine
from the other person though.
I don't believe this is Gaim's fault. Many people I speak to
that use the official MSN client also have lots of problems
with messages bouncing or being dropped. I also have the
problem you describe when using both Gaim and MSN.
