Are you using webproxy?
If yes you can block by url:
webmessenger.msn.com
loginnet.passport.com

MSN uses port 1863, you can setup a rule to block dst and src 1863

No, you won't be able to block MSN Live Messenger. Whatever port you block, it will try to a different one untill it connects.

Live messenger try to connect using the 1863 port first, if it can´t, then try with anothers...

My solution to block Live messenger is :

/ip firewall filter add chain=forward action=drop src-address-list=30segBlock
/ip firewall filter add chain=chain=forward action=add-src-to-address-list protocol=tcp address-list=30segBlock address-list-timeout=30s dst-port=1863

When it try to conect, i block the source IP for 30seg to avoid trying with another ports.

This is not the best solution, but work for my.
