I am using Windows Messenger v.4.7. My friend is using Yahoo Messenger.

How can I communicate using Messenger facility with my friend?

Many thanks.

As all the IM clients use different protacols, you will have to download the client with which your friends are members of.

There are some cross protocal clients such as GAIM click here

and trillian click here

I personally use trillain. Trillian is a fully featured, stand-alone, skinnable chat client that supports AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, and IRC.

(you will have to set up a user name for each of the clients)
(not all features work with all the IM)

Don't think you can by just using your windows messenger they are run by different messenger services.

You could download yahoo messenger and use that or I was reading about a messenger service called trillian which supports most messenger services you can find it here click here
