Since a while, the Yahoo and Windows Live Messenger network are 'merged', making it possible to add contacts from each network to another. I've several WLM-contacts in my Yahoo-account, but I'm unable to talk with them in BitlBee. I can receive their messages, but the messages I send don't reach their screen. I've no problems chatting with native Yahoo-contacts.
