Two simple questions about Kopete

Okay, I love this program but I have few problems with it. Please help if you have any clue of what I'm asking :)

1) Receiving files with MSN Messenger protocol. I can send files with ease, but when someone tries to send me a file they get a message that I cancelled. I never see any text about a send coming towards me, so I can't receive files with Kopete which is rather annoying. I set up a ftp for my friends so that they could send me files there as a temporary solution, but it's not very practical and I would want to be able to receive files via Kopete if that is possible.

2) The MSN Display Picture... I'm just wondering if it is possible to have the display picture show as full-size somehow. The tiny 22x22 icon is way too small, even though i can see the full image with mouse-over, but still I'd love to have it full-size all the time.

I'm using Kopete 0.8.0 on KDE 3.2 if that helps :P .

As with most of the protocols, sending of files in supported, but I do not believe recieving files is supported as of yet. As for the MSN picture, I do not believe there is a way to make it appear full size all the time at this moment, but if you would like to see this feature in the future your best bet would be to file a feature request on
