    Status: Open => Answered

Steven Rose proposed the following answer:
It depends where you have set this display name.

The one that your friends will see is set under the account options for
the particular MSN account. The friendly name setting in the Pidgin
options, from what I can recall is only for use on the host machine.

You received this question notification because you are a member of
