Hmm... so the "Messenger" that my friends use (I assume they all installed
the service pack 2 by now, since it's been a while already) can do SIP?
That'd be cool.  If/when you get it to work, can you add a little note on
the wiki (with an announce here) explaining how to get it to work with
Ekiga?  Even if you don't get it to work, please write how you *think* it
should be configured.  I don't have access to such an MS machine (thank
god), so I'd love to have such explanations so I can pass them on to
my friends.

Would my friends have to use an ekiga.net account from Messenger, or can
they use their "regular" account (whatever that means)?
