Pidgin is something you use to connect, not something that you connect 
to.  Also there is no "administration" of Pidgin; it is community 
supported open source software.

As MSN has been refusing to accept connections from Pidgin recently, I 
suspect you mean you are unable to connect to MSN.  Please see 
<https://pidgin.im/pipermail/support/2014-November/028325.html>, but 
note that Pidgin has never been officially permitted as a client and MSN 
could finally close any day now.
