Dear Windows Live Messenger Beta Tester,

As we get closer to the final release of Windows Live Messenger + Yahoo! Messenger Interoperability, it is time that the managed beta comes to close. We appreciate your contributions to this beta and for putting the voice of the customer into this monumental feature. With your help we were able to identify key issues with the servers that have since been fixed, leading to a better experience for all Windows Live customers.
