There was a previous report involving that message that turned out to be 
from a third party, Facebook, plugin, that is not supported here. 
Facebook can also be accessed via XMPP.

If this is  not the problem, you are going to have to say which service 
you were trying to use.

Note I was unable to find this message in the official Pidgin code.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
