Message:

Remove MSN. Use the skypeweb purple plugin instead.

RIP

As per http://ismsndeadyet.com/ all versions up to MSNP22 died a few
months ago. We had a MSNP21 implementation, bought us two extra years.

Implementing MSNP24 is technically possible but also pointless given
skypeweb, and the authentication requires some fairly messed up crypto
and legacy old-skype-protocol servers. For a long time I tried to
reverse a potentially simpler method, and got fairly close, but never
completed that. I haven't done any attempts to continue it in the last
year, so I'm fine with giving up at this point.

    929                                 For MSN: This setting allows you to read and change your "friendly name" for this connection. Since this is a server-side setting, it can't be changed when the account is off-line.

    1035                                 Mostly meant to work around a bug in MSN servers (forgetting the display name set by the user), this setting tells BitlBee to store your display name locally and set this name on the MSN servers when connecting.

    1630                         <para>
    1631                                 With this setting enabled, BitlBee will send keepalives to MSN switchboards with offline/invisible contacts every twenty seconds. This should keep the server and client on the other side from shutting it down.

    1635                                 This is useful because BitlBee doesn't support MSN offline messages yet and the MSN servers won't let the user reopen switchboards to offline users. Once offline messaging is supported, this flag might be removed.
