For all not germans:
Protokoll = protocol

Are you sure you have specified the correct protocol (Protokoll) in the account settings?
You must specify the msn protocol to use it with an msn account.

What does that mean?
You have to specify a new account. You can do that under "Accounts" (or "Konten" ). Then you add (=Hinzufügen) there a new account, specifying the msn protocol.
