I don't know what sort of problem this might be (other than what they
claim it is) but it might just be a temporary server issue. If it doesn't
resolve itself you can get the output from the Help->Debug Window from
when you try to connect and send that to the list and it might contain
something useful in it (though I don't know that it will and you will want
to look it over to make sure it doesn't contain anything you don't want
being made public).

If you mean you can't add three different accounts all at once then no,
you can't. But you can add three different accounts to pidgin
individually.

No. This mailing list and an IRC and XMPP chatroom are the only official
support venues.
