The newly released build 792 of Windows Live Messenger continues to surprise, some days after its release. Mess.Be, in its third "review" part of the build, points out a few interesting error messages which appeared in the string tables:

- "The following message could not be delivered because you have exceeded the maximum number of messages per minute. Please try again later."

- "This message was not sent because you don't have permission to send an offline message."

- "This message was not sent because it is too large for the user's offline message store."

- "This message was not sent because Offline Instant Messaging is not yet available in your region."

Those seem quite limiting. It is unknown yet in what cases those error messages will appear in future builds, but it is suspected that those will happen during an offline messaging session with Yahoo! Messenger users, as this seems to be the point of this build: preparing users to Yahoo! Messenger interoperability.

Back when the final Windows Live Messenger build was released, many users were disappointed by the temporary drop of what is one of its most important features: The Yahoo! Messenger-Windows Live Messenger interoperability.

This disappointment should now be forgotten, as the two services are rolling out support for the interoperability as soon as tonight! (PST) In a blog post, the project's Program Manager Dan mentioned:

"Technically, this wasn't easy; we have been working on this for a while and had to try a few different ways to make it work. We're pretty excited about the solutions we've come up with for our first version of yahoo + messenger. "

He also noted that there would be a few new features added in a future release and that the build being released tonight will only be covering the basics.

Update: The sign-up page has now been made available. If you are interested in testing this, sign-up Here or go to ideas.live.com
