There is no such thing as a Pidgin account.  Pidgin can provide access 
to many different kinds of account; you need to identify the type of 
account, who is providing it, and the detailed error message.

Quicktate by any chance?  I believe they run their own IM service, so 
you need to talk to their IT department.  Unfortunately I get the 
impression that they don't support their workers well, as we've had 
several people who have been told, by them, to use Pidgin, but who 
haven't had it properly explained to them.
