Messenger Plus! is one of the oldest and most respected add-ons for MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger, the two popular Instant Messaging softwares from Microsoft. Messenger Plus! adds different features to Messenger to make it more enjoyable for a regular usage.
Important internal change regarding the way Messenger is accessed by Messenger Plus!. The goal of this change is to minimize problems caused by Windows Messenger in Windows XP.
New feature: come-back messages! you've been asking for this since the existence of Messenger Plus!, you know have it thanks to the popup-menu integration added in the version 2.50 two months ago. This feature lets you record a message for an offline contact that will be sent the next times the contact signs-in.
The "Set Come-back Message" menu entry is grayed-out when the contact is not offline.
Messages are sent like Personalised Status auto messages with the only difference that they are not displayed in italic.
To avoid flooding your contacts, come-back messages are sent only 7 to 15 seconds after the contact signs-in.
You can use commands as come-back message. This can be used, for example, to automatically send a file to someone you were waiting for (with the /dropfile command).
Do not abuse this feature or it will get very annoying for your contacts. If you over-use come-back messages, you'll probably end-up being blocked :). Also, do not ask for the feature to be improved by allowing to set a come-back message when the user is signed in but his status is not Online; that is completely unnecessary and could be quite annoying for your contacts.
You can now use the (!M) and (!N) tags in your custom names to automatically add the email or the original name of your contact. You can use each tag only once per name. Example: "Charlot [(!N)]".
