Whilst Microsoft may have changed something recently, that has broken it 
this time, you shouldn't be using Pidgin to access MSN for any mission 
critical purpose as it has always been against Microsoft's terms of 
service to access it using Pidgin.  For many months now, any use of MSN, 
even with the official client, is at your own risk as support was 
withdrawn in favour of Skype, and, in principle, Microsoft could pull 
the plug finally without any warning.
