Messenger presently offline
At approximately 15:45 UTC, the Messenger bn2 servers have stopped responding. Investigations are still underway but you will be unable to connect.
You will receive the following possible error codes: 80072efd, 81000306 and 80072efd 81000301.
If you are still signed in, do not sign out or you will not be able to sign in again at the moment.
EDIT: Scanning through IP ranges hasn’t found a suitable replacement, Butterfly Messenger and the Windows 8.0 client do not appear to be working either. Skype is still working.
EDIT 2: Also of note, if Messenger cannot be restored, all focus will shift towards the Escargot server and continuing its development. Visit the forum for discussion and contacts to add.
EDIT 3: After more scanning and hoping, there’s no sign of the public Messenger server. Unfortunately this means, Messenger Reviver 2 support will have to end. If you haven’t already done so, please read my final Reviver 2 post as I’ve tried my best to pay tribute to a great messaging client and service.
