(Sort of) Solving Pidgin’s omega.contacts.msn.com problem

18 November 2010

Thanks to the fix in the comments at diarizing.com, if Pidgin won’t connect because of a certificate error, then:

  1. Delete all msn/live/hotmail certificates in the folder ~.purple/certificates/x509/tls_peers
  2. Go to https://omega.contacts.msn.com using firefox
  3. Right click > view page INFO > Security Tab > View Certificate Button > Details Tab > Export Button
  4. Save file to ~.purple/certificates/x509/tls_peers/omega.contacts.msn.com
  5. Reconnect
