Connecting mIRC to Microsoft Chat servers

Is it possible to use mIRC to connect to microsoft's chat servers instead of using their shitty chat client? If so, how would I go about it?

mIRC = shitty chat client

I don't think it would be possible. mIRC uses the IRC protocol-thingy. I don't know anything about this Microsoft chat thing. Are you talking about MSN Messenger?

Microsoft "Comic Chat" could be used to access IRC networks in the past - but don't know about other MS chat servers or services.

What I was getting at was the java chat rooms you can access at microsoft's sites, not Messenger. There is one I go to because it is bike collectors group and I hate using the browser-based chat. I have read about the old "Comic Chat" and how it can be used to connect to regular irc chat rooms other than microsoft's. Reading this gave me the idea to try and figure out how to use mirc to connect to the chat room I tend to haunt.

I have found old info that gave addresses to do just this but it seems to be out of date and no longer works. I suppose that either their systems have changed and no longer allow connecting with irc or simply the addresses have changed.

the microsoft chat server used to be at
so you could use /server
to connect to it with mirc.
