If I go online on MSN with BitlBee and someone want to add me I get the following error: msn - Error: Error reported by MSN server: Internal server error/Account banned

And the connection lost, is this a bug?

I am experiencing this same behavior. I created a hotmail account, registered with msn, did an

account add MSN <username> <password>

and then an

add <connection> <handle> <nick>


msn - Couldn't log in: Error reported by MSN server: Internal server error/Account banned

Hmm. It happened before for me, but maybe Microsoft have changed their protocal's again,

Used to fail once or twice with this error message, then finally login, so far 12 attemps and no connection.

bitlbee -V BitlBee 1.2.8 API version 010208

Could simply be MSN servers are down according to specifications here:

Will report back in the morning.

"Some people might be experiencing sign-in issues."


(Probably not the same bug that was reported here, but there we go.)

I won't fix Microsoft's servers when they're broken. :-)
