There are a few small differences in MSN P7 and P8, but the big thing is SSL
for authentication.

I have a Java Libraray that supports MSN P8, ICQ and AIM for JDK1.3 and
higher at http://sourceforge.net/projects/miu The license is Apache style.
Could help build the transport if you need it or feel feel free to borrow
from or integrate the library.

hope this is useful,
