Live Messenger. How do I change the way messages are received?

    Hi guys,

    Just a quickie here, I've downloaded the Live Messenger beta program (MSN8 iirc), installed it without a problem, but annoyingly, all the messages are appearing on top of each other rather than the way it used to.

    Hard to explain it really, but it's something like this:

    Blah blah says:
    how are you

    Then when another message is received, rather than display it underneath like MSN7 did, it adds it onto the end of the last thing they said so it ends up looking like:

    Blah blah says:
    how are you
    yeah good thanks
    what you up to?

    Hope you guys get my drift, its early :p Any idea's how to sort it out to go back to the old MSN7 way of formatting it?

    Cheers

    Never mind. Got it sorted :D

    Seemed to have done something when I tried to patch it to get rid of the ads. A quick reinstall seemed to have done the job.

    That wasn't it, there is an option in settings under messages where it is 'show "contact says" before every message' ;)
