The cert expired in February. I'll talk with my IT department again.

Thanks for all you help.

Normally everyone would get the same certificate.  It is possible that another client, or even an older version of Pidgin, doesn't check properly for expired certificates.

In any case, if you use the View Certificate button, you should be able to see the expiry date.  If that is in the past, the error message has been confirmed.  If not, then the problem gets interesting.
