Attach the output of the Help->Debug Window when connecting to one of  
the accounts in Pidgin, please. What versions of Pidgin and Adium are  
you using? How was the account in Adium configured?

(libpurple) for connections, so if it works in Adium, it definitely  
should be working in Pidgin, too.
