Are you trying to use the HTTP method in gaim?  I'm pretty sure that is broken.  Let me know for sure what you're trying to do.
Comment 2 spiffy 2004-11-29 11:33:11 UTC
How can i tell if im using the HTTP method?
Comment 3 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-29 12:21:53 UTC
By default it won't.  To try it (which shouldn't work anyway), edit your MSN account and click the "Show more options" and check "Enable HTTP method".
Comment 4 Don Seiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-13 12:43:30 UTC
Haven't heard in two weeks.  Hollar back if you still have problems.
Comment 5 spiffy 2004-12-13 12:46:18 UTC
Completely forgot, somehow the HTTP method was enabled.
