I have about 1000 Contacts on my account (@hotmail.com)
and I planned to add more friends
But it's say my contact list is full
is there any way to expand it?
It really troubled me

Your answer is appreciated
Thank You Very Much:D

Sorry, I am not aware of a way to expand the maximum amount of contacts.

Perhaps if you have a look in the registry you may find a couple of keys which you could change? But only do this if you know what you are doing

Truthfully, I don't know. Why do you have so many friends anyway? You can't possibly know all of them!

yes you can.. I use gmail with msn with no issue..
Did you know that you can use your Gmail email on Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live/MSN Messenger? No problem, if you didn’t. I’ll explain it here how you can do it. Trust me, this saves you two password to remember (if you have a different one for everything).
So first of all, you need to have a Gmail (or any other) address. I chose Gmail because it will make easy for the its users to access Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger and MSN Messenger all with one email. Then the next step requires you to sign up for Windows Live credentials. Most of the work is done here . After signing up you can easily login with your email on MSN Messenger. If you want all your contacts to be shifted to the new address, then read this on how you can import/export your contacts the easy way . Continue reading to see how you can use your email with Yahoo Messenger

Now as for the Yahoo Messenger, you can’t actually sign-in using that email of yours. But your friends can add you in their Yahoo! Messenger’s contact list (and even you can in your MSN Messenger!). This way you won’t even have to leave your MSN Messenger to see who’s online in your Yahoo’s contacts. You can even IM your Yahoo contacts from there. That’s a very nice thing I about MSN Messenger.
