This is probably a problem with the server, almost certainly so if you 
are trying to use MSN.   Please see 
<>, but 
note that Pidgin has never been officially permitted as a client and MSN 
could finally close any day now.

If you are using MSN, your best options are either to move to a more 
open source friendly service, or install and use Microsoft's official 
Skype client.

Generally, if reporting a connection problem, you need to identify the 
service you are trying to use and provide content from the debug log.
