I'm using Pidgin 2.5.4 at work. I have a colleague who has a yahoo IM. Even when he is logged onto IM, he shows up as not online. Also, when I am logged on to pidgin, I show up as not online on his MSN Live IM.
If I send him an IM message via pidgin. He does not receive it via his MSN Live IM. However, I do receive his messages on pidgin via his MSN Live IM.
Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround?
