That version is ancient.  The MSN protocol no longer supports that version!

Microsoft don't approve of open source clients, so they don't announce 
when they change the protocol to make it incompatible.  You need a 
recent version, preferably 2.7.4, which is reverse engineered against 
the current MSN protocol.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
