Are you referring to "@msn.com" email addresses? Or just MSN Messenger?

Look, MSN messenger accepts multiple account types for registering Messenger users (meaning multiple types of email domains). So, it isn't going anywhere....anytime soon. Also, with Gmail about to go live with 3GB Free for every email account....it isn't likely to happen with the next 5 years.

I work with (not for) Microsoft and Google. I have never heard about this from a reliable source.

It's like acompany telling you they are going under a month before they sell out. They just don't do that, wouldn't it make for an interesting stock market though. consider it a joke.
