Pidgin & Yahoo Messenger

Hi All,

This is only an info post.

Recently I was not able connect to my yahoo mail a/c using Pidgin messenger.

I tried umpteen ways but for all in vain.

Finally I logged into the irc channel of pidgin - #pidgin and got this info. Please read this link for more detail info -

It seems that yahoo folks did some changes in their server settings that prevented Pidgin to connect to the yahoo servers.

This has been fixed with the latest pidgin.

By default, Lenny ports with Pidgin 2.4 version. Please use and upgrade your pidgin to anything higher than 2.5.6 for a fix.

I will post some day -- installation of Pidgin 2.5.8.
