kopete help for a newb

Hi there. I'm new to all this stuff but I'm trying to learn. I've installed KDE 3.2.1 with Kopete 0.8.1. I've configured an account for MSN but it just keeps telling me the password is wrong. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

RE: kopete help for a newb

@dwhalen: I think your version is simply to old. MSN is a closed protocol. That's why a third party (Microsoft) can change the protocol any time they like. AFAIK, that is the reason why old versions of Kopete doesn't work any more. More information about MSN and Kopete can be found at . That page also have a workaround if you can't upgrade.

@Radio999: Maybe there is some usefull information on that page for you either.
