    cannot sign into messenger with aol account

    my messenger signin is *myname*@aol.com when I try to sign in I get the
    message "we were unable to sign you into windows live messenger, possibly
    because of a problem with your internet connection" error code 80072745

    I have looked that up and what it says does not apply since borh my desktop
    and my laptop signs into messenger with no problem... tho its a
    *myname*@hotmail.com...

    neither computer will sign into msn messenger or webmessenger with the
    @aol.com account, both Will sign in with @hotmail.com

    I have had the @aol.com messenger account for four years and this is the
    first time it won't sign in... also it will sign into msn free games with
    @aol...

    so why am I now unable to access the msn messengers with the @aol.com account?

    I'm having the exact same problem, and on the exact same day... obviously
    this has nothing to do with anything on our end.

    Greetings,

    Well, I have to sleep sometimes.

    Given there's been no new posts to this thread in 9 hours, I assume it's been resolved?

    Actually, no. The problem still exists. I also cannot sign into any messenger
    anywhere with my .net passport ID which happens to be on an AOL account and
    has been since MS created .net passport. When will this be resolved?
