Messenger Plus! 6

What is Messenger Plus! 6?

Messenger Plus! is a freeware add-on for Windows Live Messenger and Skype . The software provides additional functionality to Microsoft's Instant messaging client Windows Live Messenger by adding its own controls to the main interface. These controls affect Messenger's behaviour and appearance, often through additional dialog boxes. A set of text formatting codes similar to BBCode (people who don't use Messenger Plus! will still see standard unformatted text with the BBCode still in place). Event logging and chat logging in either plain text or HTML with optional encryption. Auto-reply messages, usually activated when away from keyboard. JScript scripting allowing users to add their own functionality. Skinning Windows Live Messenger without the user having to physically edit the program's resource files.
