I currently use trillion for my WLM client. It allows you to set nicknames.

WLM 2011 is the mail program...not the entire suite. That being said, it works very well. WLM lets me sync my e-mail, contacts, and calendar across three computers. It's been years since I knew anyone who communicated via IM programs, but if that was the case, I'd be using something like Trillian, as mentioned above. If you want one entity to be professional....keep them separate.

WLM = Windows Live Messenger >_> not Mail.

P.S Already using aMSN as my alternative.

Considering IM is kind of a dated, dying method of communicating, and given the popularity of Windows Live Mail on these forums, WLM means Windows Live Mail, as mentioned above. In the future, showing attitude at people taking time to post in your thread isn't the best way to get solutions...especially when you aren't specific enough with your questions in the first place.

I am someone who uses Im as a daily part of life. I use it to communicate with co-workers about things that dont need to be on out corporate email, and hold conversations that are too short to deserve a call but will require a quick response and several correspondences than could be done by the time the send and recieve is done on both sides.

Aside form internal IM apps, like Jabber, you'll find IM programs blocked on most corporate networks.

WLM no longer suits my requirements. Back when it was called MSN Messenger, it was lightweight. How,ever now it is filled with features I never use (is why i uninstalled it.)
