No, that's not possible.

BB Messenger uses PIN messaging as it's transport over the RIM network. Only the BlackBerry device has a PIN... not your PC.

Ok thanks. I thought that I read somewhere on the WWW that there was a PC version of the BB Messenger, but had to be installed on the computer which has the DM installed and associated with the device PIN. Would be a good thing so I can chat with the wife rather than having to log onto MSN.

Other than I posted, I don't believe that is possible.
