I dont have time to search forums for this bug, I know its a known
issue, but in the end if this doesent get addressed, im migrating to
something that works withough me needing to Fuck with MSN SSL
certificates every 20 Minutes.... Forward this message to someone, or
don't. If this isnt fixed in less than a week, I will have no choice to
migrate to Empathy or another Multi-Chat client....

So Technically if all I have to do is the steps below, can this be
scrippted into the software, to acquire new certificates whenever
required, or at least to verify it on connect?

Updated to the Latest Version
Tried Manually Getting New Certificate ---> Fixes Issue
( Executed steps listed here )

Looked like an SSL error, which I confirmed with Goggles. I mean
Googles. I mean Google.

Anyway, to fix it, do this:
1. Open Pidgin. Go to Tools / Certificates and you should see
omega.contacts.msn.com. Delete it.
2. Then go to https://omega.contacts.msn.com . You’ll get an error on
the page, but don’t worry. Just double click on the certificate icon and
export the file to your Desktop or wherever.
3. Then go back into Pidgin and go to Tools / Certificates and Add it
via the Certificate Manager.

It should work now. Yay.



Randomly, or on next connect attempt certificate

Coming From an end user, I will discontinue use of this software, if it
does not support MSN in a stable fashion.... I tried to Supply as much
usefull information as possible with this message.
