Do you have a router or software firewall?

Generally, in a case where one internet-based program is working while one is not is related to opened and closed ports.

Ports are different 'doors' to the internet and each program has a different port that it uses.

If you have a software firewall, make sure that MSN is setup so that it can act as a server and client to the internet. The same pretty much goes for a router, except routers seem to auto-detect such things.
