I haven't used Pidgin much these days, so when I opened it recently I noticed none of my MSN contacts were online. I checked my accounts and saw that MSN was disabled. So I enable it, and it keeps showing an error message. I thought it was because of 2-step verification, so I turned that off, and still get the error. I read all about MSN messenger shutting down, but I just assumed 3rd party software would still have it running somehow.
The error message is: "Connection error from Notification server: Connection refused."
