I can't believe that Pidgin is wrong about this. I rather think that
another client might in fact be signing in to your account. This might
be a spammer who has obtained your login credentials using a virus on
your computer or through phishing. Please make sure that your machine is
clean and that noone but you knows your password. (You wrote that you
tried to reset your password. Did you actually change it?)

I'm unable to sign in to MSN on Pidgin. I just get a message at the
bottom "1 account was disabled because you signed on from another

- Version 2.6.6
- I've tried rebooting.
- I am not signed on from another location, all of my coworkers see me
as offline.
- I've tried resetting my password to something different.
- I can sign in from the Windows Live site, so it isn't a
username/password problem.

Thanks for any help,
- Jared
