Karl, it pains me to say this, but one reason you seem unable to
configure Pidgin correctly is because Oracle's internal IT department
seem to be deficient and do not provide you or your co-worksers adequate

Oracle seems to have decided to use Pidgin internally but has not
bothered to alter the installation so that the help links point to
corporate resources inside Oracle instead of causing users to
constantly be sending emails to the peer support list provided by
ordinary Pidgin users who have no greater power than the ability to
read and type replies to this list.

Please do us a favour, speak to whoever is in charger of messaging
applications within Oracle and ask them why, despite several years
passing, they have still been unable to complete the simple task of
supporting their users.

While you're at it, you could also ask them why your display is

I wish you luck.
