Why isn't the ... instant messaging alert no longer working?

Most of the instant messaging providers are using none-documented protocols.  This means that each time they implement a change (and they do that often) we can have a problem with the login or sending of messages. 

That's the main reason why using instant messaging as alerting is not very reliable.

All IM alerting works again in Servers Alive v6.1 (ofcourse until one of the IM servers changes the protocol(s) it uses).

Customer praise

"This product has been the best monitoring tool I've found under $500 per seat! It can do almost anything (except monitor the coffee maker). I'm using it for monitoring websites and doing all kinds of other tests on various machines and have not found it seriously lacking in anything."
