Hello Jeff,

This error message occurred because of auto updates you can solve this problem by using GUI method by following these steps. First close Pidgin, find your certificate folder, Windows: %appdate%purple, Linux:/home/.perple. After find certificate folder delete everything in the certificate folder finally restart pidgin and eventually you should get a new certificate that works

Hi Jeff,

The first and foremost step is to remove the invalid cer­tifi­cate. Go to Tools->Certificates.

Next you need to try to recon­nect and it may get a valid cer­tifi­cate, then we are done.

If we are not, then you can do the following:

echo QUIT | openssl s_client –con­nect omega?.con?tacts?.msn?.com:443 | openssl x509 > omega?.con?tacts?.msn?.com

And copy that file to: ~/.purple/certificates/x509/tls_peers

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Baker
