Unable to add the buddy because the user name is invalid. User names must be valid email addresses. "

Closing all MSN tickets, since it has been removed in pidgin 2.12.0 after being broken for a couple of years (see The skypeweb plugin can be used as an alternative (yes, it supports MSN logins too)

If this issue is still present in any other protocols supported by pidgin, please leave a comment and we will reopen it.
