Now I've become a little experienced with MSN Messenger :)

 |Using DeleGate as a Socks proxy is easy, basically like:

I confirmed that using Socks-DeleGate like above works to relay MSN M.  
I needed to change the proxy setting for MSIE too, to do something
like "Go to Chat Rooms".  

Also I saw using HTTP-DeleGate with the option "HTTPCONF=ver:1.0"
works too, even without any "HTTPCONF=methods:..." option.
It seems that MSN M. uses only standard methods (like POST) but
its usage of HTTP version 1.1 could be bad.  For example, it send
a broken message like "POST url HTTP/1.1 HTTP/1.1" ;)
