        ok - an error 400 usually means that you're trying to connect to a site with mismatched hostheader, ip, or other details.. so it's an IIS config error.

        exactly how it ties in to messenger, i'm not sure sorry.

        as an example, my IIS srever has two web site instances, using the same iup ( and same port (80)
        so i have a hostheader on one called and a hostheader on the other called
        if i try to browse to I'll get an error 400.
        if i try to browse to http://iisserver/ i'll get an error 400.

        soI have to browse to
        (for instance)
