Strange things with Pidgin.
Some of you will probably laugh at this, but I simply cannot change my Nickname in MSN using the Pidgin messenger on my Fedora 7.
Here's the deal. When booting in WinXP, and using crappy Live Messenger there, I have no problems whatsoever - I can change my nick to whatever I like. In Pidgin, however (and even Gaim on Solaris Sparc machine that I use in school), I cant change the nickname. Whatever I put in the settings, the only nickname that I can have is a nick that I used like a month ago, that I no longer even use when using WinXP/Live MSN.
What's the deal?
Am I missing something?
A MSN-server/protocol thing or what?
I simply wonder where this old nickname is registered and why I can't put it away, no matter what I write in my Pidgin/Gaim settings (I save settings, of course, and the chosen nick name appears in my preferences - but NOT to people who see me online, but they see the old nick).
Thanks in advance.
