Disable Messenger from Hotmail inbox


How can I disable the Messenger option from the Hotmail inbox? It's quite annoying, each time I open my inbox, my status on MSN is set to "Connected".


  • Top right in your Hotmail inbox you'll have your name (with a green square). Just put the cursor over it to get your potential status on MSN:
  • Click "Log Out" to close the MSN.
  • You can also set MSN to "offline" mode, if you don't want your contacts to see if your connected or not!
