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.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
