While I (and others) reported in august that the MSN service is closed (at least in Europe), these days I noticed I can connect again to my MSN account (using Pidgin, the same settings as before).

So either they were reopened or never really closed.

I just connected to my MSN account with Pidgin. So the service still works.

My account settings are (on the "Advanced" tab):
Server: messenger.hotmail.com
Port: 1863
"Use HTTP Method" is enabled
HTTP Method Server: gateway.messenger.hotmail.com
The last three optios are enabled.

I had issues early in the week and worked for a bit on Wednesday and then my accounts stopped working by Thursday morning and haven't worked since.
