Escargot services are moving to m1.escargot.chat and as such you'll need to prepare your client.

Important: If your password is saved in your client, you will need to uncheck save, retype it, and check save again, otherwise it will often not authenticate correctly after the server change.

Choose your client

MSN 1.0 - 4.6

The fastest way is to download the registry update, open it, click Yes. You can find more detailed information with screenshots here.

MSN 4.7, 5.0 - 2009

Edit the file msnmsgr.exe-escargot.ini present on

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSN Messenger\ (MSN 4.7-7.5) 
or 
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger 

Note: In some cases you will need to edit this as administrator, by first opening Notepad as administrator (right click on Notepad, click Run as Administrator) and then opening the file to edit.

Update the following lines at the end:

server = m1.escargot.chat
configserver = escargot.chat

Those lines should look how they appear in this example:

MSNP edit ini changed.png

Important: If using 2009, edit

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Contacts\wlmcomm.exe-escargot.ini 

and add these lines as well.
