Pidgin cannot connect to MSN: the certificate chain presented is invalid

The certificate for omega.contacts.msn.com could not be validated. The certificate chain presented is invalid.

If you have an error when trying to connect to MSN messenger with your pidgin today, this is the easy and quick way to fix the problem: just delete the contacts.msn.com SSL certificate.

rm ~.purple/certificates/x509/tls_peers/contacts.msn.com

This way, pidgin will download again the SSL certificate and everything will be working again.

update: check comments for more other possible fixes
