Remember when I mentioned we know our Beta’s aren’t perfect? Well I have some info on a non-perfect situtation.

We are in the process of upgrading some of our services over the next few days, this may cause a problem with sign-in on Messenger 8.1 Beta.

If you receive sign-in error 8004800E please:

  • Exit Messenger (right click on the icon in the system tray and select Exit)
  • Start Messenger again
  • Sign-in and it should be successful

Good news: we are working on a fix for this for our next update 

Thanks so much for being a Beta user – Beta users make Messenger Bet-a for sure
