"Edit: Have you tried the official Microsoft Messenger:mac 7?
Its description sais it supports file transfers. Don't know about the offline messages though.

Otherwise I don't think what you want exists. aMSN will come closest to what you describe. The problem I think is that Microsoft created their own 'protocol' regarding file transfer and offline messages. I even think the Microsoft servers (which are closed) are used as a middle-man for those things.

I think you will have to resort to other ""more open"" ways of dealing with those problems.

Possible alternatives:

file transfers: e-mail, dropbox
offline messages: e-mail"
