It is an appropriate place to get help on problems using Pidgin.  If you 
have enough information to raise a bug report (which you do not appear 
to have), you should use the bug tracker instead.

What are "emsene" and "amsn".

More generally, you seem to be saying that proxying using HTTP works, so 
I don't understand why you have a problem.  The need to use HTTP will 
arise because of firewall policies, or sometimes because of broken DNS

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
