Pidgin and MSN (certificate error for omega​.con​tacts​.msn​.com)

Microsoft did something today.

My wife started getting dozens of dialogs with this error – “The certificate for omega.contacts.msn.com could not be validated. The certificate chain presented is invalid.”

Once I disconnected from my company VPN, I started getting them too (I can’t quite make that make sense, but that would be another story entirely.)

Anyway, I consulted Google, and found that Andrei Neculau solved the problem already and shared the solution here.
