I was having this same problem with my AIM account, but it suddenly starting working again. I am getting a "Authentication Failure" message when trying to enable my MSN(Hotmail) account Pidgin(see attached jpg). I reset my Hotmail password, but it still fails on Pidgin. Any ideas/suggestions?....

This was submitted roughly around the time the auth server started rejecting the old ApplicationID, which is what was "fixed" in 2.10.11, but it didn't last long, and now it's broken again.

If you still have issues with things other than msn, open a new ticket.
