gtmess is a console MSN Messenger client for GNU/Linux and other systems that conform to the POSIX standard. It supports the MSNP9 protocol version. Apart from the basic stuff like file transfers and chat windows, it offers some advanced features like message logging, contact list cleanup, spoofing the typing user (on some clients), and a popup notifier (via Tcl/Tk). It is UTF-8 compliant.
