Or you could look in your accounts.xml.  You can find this file in
Pidgin's configuration directory.

On GNU/Linux, the configuration directory is: "${HOME}/.purple", which
is generally /home/USERNAME/.purple

On Windows, the configuration directory is: "%userprofile%\Application
Data\.purple", which is generally C:\Documents and
Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\.purple (Windows 2K/XP) or
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\.purple (Windows Vista), and
Application Data or AppData is a hidden directory.
