Hi,
A few things for you to look at.

1. Do you have a software firewall (like ZoneAlarm)? If so, check its settings.

2. Are you using an ADSL modem/router (rather than a "frog") ? If so, your router is probably doing NAT. Messenger and NAT do not play together nicely. Do a search on the forums at http://www.adslguide.org.uk or the Microsoft support site, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q278887. The answer lies in setting up port fowarding on your router I believe but it ain't easy Wink

If neither of those apply to you, then sorry, maybe someone else can offer you some suggestions.

Good Luck,

I noticed the same thing and found a workaround fix.

Not much seems to want to upload unless I compress with WinRAR first. It seems to be a problem with actual file types u upload. JPG and RAR are fine afaik.
