What version of Pidgin at work? What version of Pidgin at home?

What protocol? Sounds ICQ or Yahoo - or any of the protocols that 
require authorization. My INITIAL suggestion (I could be wrong) is 
that for some reason Pidgin didn't see the accepting of the buddy 
request. Try resending it (delete him then re-add him as a buddy).

I don't see any other posts from you - at least in my archives which 
granted only go back to November 2007...

This is mainly a group of fellow users. You aren't paying for 
support. You aren't 'entitled' to support. Perhaps asking nicely, 
rather than stating it like you are entitled or DEMANDING support.

>My boss is pushing for resolution on this issue.

Sounds like your boss has unrealistic expectations.. Using a free 
software and demanding things from it? Wow.
