My company recently blocked access to emessenger, which i used to access my MSN messenger. :(

Can anyone suggest an alternative?

It depends on how they blocked it, have you tried trillian? It may be that all p2p message systems have been blocked

Hey Minime, means you are not able to access any of the internet pages from you company.

Guess, most of the emessenger use an http protocol. Do check your internet explorer-cookies and proxy settings :)

Oh SMS,

Hi Scorpion, thanks for your suggestion. I still can access other internet pages, just that my company blocked those sites that have messenger properties. :cry:

It's always good to know there are people out there like that (not hardworking) as it means those of us that are can take their jobs when/if necessary. Obviously, the only reason I am typing this is because I'm so efficient - or I own the company. :lol:
