Pidgin Y!M connection

Sometimes the Y!M pager server is down for maintenance. Therefore Pidgin clients encounter connection problem.

You may fix it simply by changing the pager server settings:
(Account -> Manage -> -> [Y!M account] -> Modify -> Advance)

default: scs.msg.yahoo.com

change to: cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com (

or: cs101.msg.cnb.yahoo.com (

P.S: Kopete or Empathy clients issue can be fixed in a similar way, too.
