Please can you post the contents of the Help->Debug Window when your
connection attempt fails. Check it before sending and obfuscate any
information you don't want on a public mailing list such as user name
and password.

Please post this to the list address and not directly to me, I've CC'd
you as I don't know whether you are subscribed to the Pidgin support
mailing list.
