Default Re: MSN to charge

that site is old, look at the date, it says feb 2001 so if they were going to charge it would have started a long time ago.

That's about the same reason I use MSN. Just to check e-mail every once in awhile, and the occasional chat or two.

Your right, this is an outdated piece of news... I personally don't think this topic has much use anymore now... in my personal opinion it should be closed.

this is no different to how Yahoo cahrge for premium accounts, to give you more space/imap / pop3 access or improved spam filtering...

I'll be sticking with my free account I think.

I only have an account to use messenger anyway.

Yes it has happened, it's been that way for a long time now. You pay monthly or yearly for extra services, bigger inbox....etc.
