You cannot use Messenger at this time because your contact list is not available. Please try again later.
Click Help to learn more about your contact list. 81000377
There isn\'t really a solution, it means you can\'t connect to the messenger servers. First check the status of the .NET servers here
. If that says everything is OK then it will be a problem with your net connection. You should still be able to connect to other services like AIM and web pages. If this problem persists please start a thread in our forum requesting help.
