Creating accounts

To use Adium, you'll need an account on one or more of the IM services that it supports. Before proceeding, you should either have an existing name and password, or you need to sign up for an account on the service of your choice. Note that Adium will offer to register your account on the XMPP ("Jabber") service when setting up a XMPP ("Jabber") account.

-

You'll only be able to communicate with contacts (also called 'buddies' or 'users') on a service if you have an account on that service. In other words, you'll need an AIM account to talk to AIM contacts, an MSN account to talk to MSN contacts, etc. You can have as many accounts, on as many services, as you want, and they can all be signed on with Adium simultaneously.

    MSN Messenger, now called Windows Live Messenger, is a freeware instant messaging client that was developed and distributed by Microsoft in 1999 to 2005 and in 2007 for computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system (except Windows Vista), and aimed towards home users. It was renamed Windows Live Messenger in February 2006 as part of Microsoft's Windows Live series of online services and software.

    MSN censors messages containing particular fragments of URLs. Previously, the message would simply be dropped with no indication to either side that it went away; now, at least, you get an error message (inline in the message view).

    -

    Pieces of text that are known to cause MSN to throw a message into the memory hole

    -

    The most common ones that we know of are:

        Occasionally, servers will report your login information as invalid when it isn't. If this is the case, it's likely a temporary issue which you will have to wait to correct itself.

      Turning HTTP connection on and off

      -

      Adium allows you to connect to the MSN service using HTTP, for situations when the MSN server is not reachable by normal means. This feature can be turned on and off in the Account's Options which you can access by double-clicking on the account in the Accounts list in Adium's Preferences.

      "Retrieving Contact List 100%" / "Reading error"

      -
      -
      -

      This is caused by "incorrect" contacts in contact lists. If you're running into this error you need you need to remove the offending contact. You can identify it by getting a debug log (see CurrentAdiumDebug for instructions) and looking for the following sequence in the log:

      -
      (Libpurple: msn) FQY error 241
      -(Libpurple: msn) FQY response says 
      -<offending contact> is from network 0
      -(Libpurple: msn) Ignoring user <offending contact>
      -about which server knows nothing.
      -

      If removing the contact doesn't work with Adium, you could try with the original/mainline client. #p10023 has details.

      "Unable to add user (Unknown error 204)"

      -
      -
      -

      This can happen when with certain Yahoo users on your MSN contact list. The workaround for "Retrieving Contact List 100%" / "Reading error" also applies here. #p8988 has details.

      6. Try another client

      -

      In some cases the problems encountered in Adium can actually be a result of a server-side problem (i.e. connection problems). These problems can be confirmed by logging in to your account using the equivalent mainline client; for example if the problem is with MSN, login with Microsoft Messenger to see if it occurs using that client as well.

      In some cases the problems encountered in Adium can actually be a result of a server-side problem (i.e. connection problems). These problems can be confirmed by logging in to your account using the equivalent mainline client.

      If the problem persists across different clients, then there is likely nothing we can do to solve the problem except wait for the server issues to be repaired; please do not open new tickets regarding these kinds of problems.
