Nothing in the above bit of log indicates anything failed, and I didn't
see any attached file in that message. So as far as we can tell everything
worked correctly. If your buddy didn't get the message then either your
server failed to send it or dropped it silently, their server did, or
their client did.

If you attach the debug.log (or even just inline a larger excerpt from it)
it is possible we will be able to see an error response coming back, but
since you didn't see one I think that is unlikely (pidgin should display
any error you get about a failed message to you). Which leads back to
something happening that pidgin is not aware of (let alone in control of).
