You can't log in to Pidgin.  Pidgin is a client, which allows you to log 
  in to many different instant messaging services.  Your problem is with 
logging in to one of those services.  The specific error number will be 
coming from that service.

The contents of Pidgin's debug window may help identify the service and 
the stage at which the process is failing, but interpreting the error 
code probably requires reference to the documentation for the particular 
service, or contact that service's support department.

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.
