MSN Showing Offline

Reported by: smallbizwhiz Owned by: rekkanoryo
Milestone: Component: MSN
Version: 2.6.4 Keywords:
Cc: tabbifli


For several versions now, some, but not all MSN contacts show offline even when they're not. I cannot identify any one person or reason that would cause this. The only thing I common denominator is they are all employees within the company and therefore use pidgin. However, even those that sign on from home--not using Pidgin cannot be seen.

It probably goes without saying that I can still communicate with these people despite being shown as offline.

The log I just attached shows? the same issue using Adium. Other buddies using Adium are not showing up, while those using other clients are.

I also have this same problem with MSN in 2.6.4 and previous versions, however, the problem is reversed. I am showing offline to some (but not all) contacts on my list. If I hover over these contacts the 'has you' status is NO even though they do have me on their list. All privacy settings are off on both sides. If I log into Windows Live, I show on line to the other party's and everything works fine. This problem occurs with multiple clients when one party or the other is using a Pidgin client.

  • Component changed from unclassified to MSN
  • Status changed from new to pending

Which contacts are you expecting should be online?

I can't remember. I think that the issue was that I was offline to most everyone in my buddy list.

Replying to thraxisp:

I can't remember. I think that the issue was that I was offline to most everyone in my buddy list.

That is not the same problem as this ticket.

As I said, that was 5 months ago. The users that were missing were using Adium, I think. They weren't listed in the logs. The flip side was also true, as I wasn't listed as online in their buddy lists.

Maybe next time you could follow up in less than an eternity. I've moved on to another IM client because of the delays.
