You cannot log in to the Pidgin IM program, but you can use the Pidgin 
program to log in to an IM server.  It is the server that is rejecting 
your login and you need to contact the people running the server.  They 
are completely independent of the people who maintain Pidgin, and most, 
or all, of the people who use it.

People here cannot tell which server you are using so have no idea 
whether they know about your server.  I'd start with your IT department.
