Tried 2 different methods shown, and it will work for a while, then next time it connects the same issue occurs.  Then suddenly it will just solve itself.  I can’t see any rhyme or reason for it.  Its just constantly messing up and its making pidgin unuseable

I run 2 msn accounts thru pidgin.  This afternoon I started getting

 

Your MSN buddy list is temporarily unavailable. Please wait and try again

And had a pop up with this

SSL Certificate error 

Unable to validate certificate

The certificate for omega.contacts.msn.com could not be validated. The certificate chain presented is invalid

 

It causes the accounts to  disconnect.  Then for no reason will disconnect. And it doesn’t always effect both accounts at the same time.

However when it attempts to connect it still kicks me off of windows live so it must be getting some where.  
Server  messenger.hotmail.com
port    

 

Please help cause i hate msn.
