Hello Brian,

I've downloaded and installed the certificates and they are read on
start of pidgin:

# cd /usr/local/share/purple/ca-certs
# ls -lutr M*
-rw-r--r--  1 guru  wheel  6153 21 nov 10:00 Microsoft_Secure_Server_Authority_2010.pem
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  2202 21 nov 10:00 Microsoft_Secure_Server_Authority.pem
-rw-r--r--  1 guru  wheel  5764 21 nov 10:00 Microsoft_Internet_Authority_2010.pem
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1809 21 nov 10:00 Microsoft_Internet_Authority.pem

But, sometimes it still gives the error message about "could not
validate the certificate for omega.contacts.msn.com", sometimes it
works after a few retries; what I am missing?

This is with 2.6.2 on FreeBSD 8.x

Thanks


	matthias
