I have MSN messenger on my phone and I'm unfamiliar with it as no one I know uses it. Anyway, afaik you have to add people before they can message you, but my phone doesn't alert me when someone adds me before they message me, it only alerts me when I get a message from someone on my contact list.

Is there anyway that I can change the settings so that I don't have to approve messages from users not on my contact list? Thanks in advance and excuse my ignorance with the service.
