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

works after a few retries; what I am missing?
