"unable to validate certificate"? If so:
A few interesting notes:
| The problem isn't on Pidgin's end it's a misconfiguration
| of the MSN servers
| How to replace your certficate (the GUI method):
| Go to pidgin's Tools->Certificates to remove the old certificate. Don't
| close this window yet. (You can, but it is easier to not)
| With your browser, go to https://omega.contracts.msn.com. It will give you
| "Directory Listing Denied"
| With Firefox, if you click on the lock in the lower right corner, you
| get a dialog box, where you can click on View Certificate. On its Details tab,
| you can export the certificate to a file.
| Now, back on the pidgin Tools->Certificates dialog, you can add this
| certificate, and all is well.
