Pidgin/Yahoo issues


2751831222_483d947f0a_oIt seems that Yahoo has dropped support for legacy way of login, causing some problems with Pidgin. Possible solutions:

  • Update to version 2.5.7 (works for me :-))
  • Accounts -> Edit account (to yahoo account) -> Advanced -> and to Pager Server erase “scs.msg.yahoo.com” and put instead 66.163.181.189
