Answer to your first question: in Windows Live Messenger 8 select
Options from the Tools menu. Then select the General tab, and the
options you want are at the top.

Other versions of Messenger have similar options under the Options menu.

Answer to your second question: I'm not sure if Messenger tells someone
they've been deleted. I use an alternative messaging program which
does. Blocking is probably a better alternative to deleting someone,
because when you delete them they can still see your online status.
Although sometimes some hacks show up that allow you to check if
someone's blocked you.

Greetings,

It doesn't make a direct alert when you get deleted, but you can always check by clicking the
Tools menu, then Options, the Privacy tab and right-clicking through contacts to see if the
Delete option is available. If it is and not grayed out, they've deleted you.
