Does the problem still happen with the 0.2a version?
http://instantbird.com/download-0.2a1.html (this version is stable)

If it solved the problem, it may be because of the version of the MSN protocol (MS servers that don't accept old very anymore).

Anyway thanks for your report and for your interest in Instantbird.

yeah, actually i downloaded .2a first and noticed the problem, then
backtracked to the slightly older version and still had the same error. i'm
able to login to the accounts on adium and on windows live for xp...not
sure if there is something wrong with the server settings? i couldn't find
them on the site to verify.

Today we received a report with a similiar problem, so it might be the same issue as yours. In this case it is the problem that someone has a ID that is not "@hotmail.com" but "@hotmail.fr".

Would be nice if you could tell us if this (ie other toplevel domain) applies in your case as well.

Thanks for your help :)

Any news on this? We'd need some more information to see if it is reproducible and what to do about it. 

Thanks in advance!
