I'm going to assume that the two messages you pasted would translate
approximately to "A message could not be sent because an error with the
switchboard occured" and "Message may not have been sent because a timeout
occurred," which are fairly standard error messages in the MSN protocol.  I know
very little about the MSN protocol; this message should have gone to
support at for assistance.  I'm sending it there for those more familiar
with the MSN protocol to answer.
