Microsoft Messenger not logging in on Mac OSX

If you run Microsoft Messenger (MSN) on a Mac OSX and you keep getting the message “failed to login” then you have to remove these files in ~/Library/Preferences/Microsoft folder :

com.microsoft.Messenger.plist
com.microsoft.MessengerDaemon.plist
Microsoft Messenger User Cache
Microsoft Messenger User Cache.plist

(short posting mostly to serve as a reminder for a myself because I keep on forgetting the exact path)
