I say there is still a problem. Here, with the wildcard rule, it looked
like there was a SRV records to live.com though there is not. Nothing
should have been returned to this SRV query.

Also, just as a side note (that won't change the fact, just sharing my
astonishment), what a strange idea to use messenger.live.com! That is
nearly as though they don't understand "modern technologies", and did
not understand that is exactly the point of SRV records, in order not to
have to create specific domains/subdomains just for IM.
