Try posting a link to:

www.google.com
www.youtube.com
www.tinyurl.com

I just get this:

The following message could not be delivered to all recipients:
www.youtube.com

Apparently they have blocked these links due to the possibility of malware.

Anyone else want to confirm it's not just my PC?

It's happened to me before.

I just put a space in the URL somewhere and make sure that the person copys and pastes the link, then removes the space. Tadah.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

Yeah obviously, but the fact is they shouldn't be blocking these sites.

Well, after some extra help, it seems that ALL LINKS are now blocked in MSN.

Fuck Microsoft.

No youtube, yet I constantly get sent the obvious phishing attempt links that the system is supposedly trying to prevent from reaching your messenger client.... ridiculous.

Yeah, I was trying to show some videos of a gig I was at to a friend using YouTube but it blocked it. **** YOU MICROSOFT!!!

Hey you're right. Why would they want to prevent you from sending links anyway?

Apatch is great, you can remove all the ads and unwanted shite that comes with the stock msn.
