Getting MSN to work in Miranda

You may remember my Miranda Meanderings back in October where I managed to get AOL, Jabber and ICQ working, but not Yahoo or MSN. Well, I’ve fixed the latter.
If you want to connect using MSN, get the latest revision to the plugin first. Then, if you can’t connect, get the MSN gateway plugin. This seems to work fine for me, and now means I don’t need to have MSN Messenger running.
There is a beta Yahoo plugin available, but, alas, I can’t connect with it. I fear it may be related to why I initially couldn’t connect to MSN, but I haven’t been able to find a similar gateway plugin for Yahoo.
Oh, how I miss Trillian. Darn university firewalls that block it 🙁 .
