    Gaim will do both of those, as well as a number of others.

    Although I second the gaim motion above and am a long time user, I thought this link might be interesting for you. Also although most people (including myself) prefer gaim, Kopete is quite good too.

    Kopete, IMO, is much better. You can have your AIM, MSN, ICQ, etc accounts all opened up in 1 window. Its really convienient.

    Yeh, I prefer GAIM aswell. Dunno why thought.

    Also, some time ago I tried a CUI msn-client written in python with msnlib or something like that, did'nt find too much out of it, you have to run "/send" commands and such IIRC
