    For the last few months I have not been able to sign into Adium and have been forced to use messenger instead.
    I'm trying to sign in using a hotmail account. It used to work perfectly for me then after the update before 10.5.2 I think it just hangs on signing in.

    Has anyone experienced anything similar?
    I just got a MBA as well so I was hoping it was some software issue with my older macbook but now it's doing the same thing on the MBA right after a clean install of Adium's latest version.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have had no problems using MSN Messenger with Adium...

    With 10.5.1 or 10.5.2. Both work perfectly.

    Try removing all your accounts, then removing ADIUM's cache (/YOUR/HOME/DIRECTORY/Library/Caches/Adium) and creating the accounts again to see if that does the trick.

    Good luck. :D

    Adium Menu -> Accounts -> Account List...

    That wil display all of your accounts.

    Select the ones that you want to remove and click the "-" (erase) button.

    If you haven't tried this, try a simple "Account Removal + Account re-creation" before doing the CACHE thing. This might be all you need.

    Good luck.

    The latest release of Adium brought with it a few annoyances -- there's a certificate problem, for example, which prevents a problem-free log-in to gtalk.

    You may have to reinstall. I know I had small issues and I just started from scratch again.
