Apologies all for number of posts, after some debugging this appears to be a
certificate validation issue. Any ideas how to fix?

(16:33:58) certificate/x509/ca: Lazy init completed. 
(16:33:58) certificate: Failed to verify certificate for
local-bay.contacts.msn.com
(16:33:58) msn: Operation {} failed. No response received from server.
(16:33:58) msn: C: NS 000: OUT
(16:33:58) connection: Connection error on 0x8f34ef0 (reason: 0 description:
Your MSN buddy list is temporarily unavailable. Please wait and try again.)
