Contacts don't automatically get added to Outlook Express's address book unless you want them to.

I have used windows messenger and now use msn. The voice chat quality is better on msn. It is as good as skype. And the other thing I don't like about windows messenger is that who ever you add to your contacts get automatically added to your address book in outlook express. I like to keep them separate. So why not try windows messenger since it is already on your machine and if you like it stick with it. Who knows. We like to play with computers so we will try different things.

 Oh, I would have to disagree about windows messenger being less quality
 than MSN messenger. i have tried both and love windows messenger for the
 easy interface. Don't understand the less quality thing at all. I can't
 tell the difference. Except, that windows messenger because of its
 interface is easier to use. and you can add my name to your list if you
 want, jazzpiano@xxxxxxxxxxxx
