Pidgin Yahoo Buddy Not on Server List Problem

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

I think it’s a sync issue between the client and the server. Try to log to ymess with web interface or from the e-mail interface itself and add the buddy there.


That didn’t seem to help.

Hmm, this used to fix it for me when it did happen. I did a search on pidgin trac and I saw that sometimes is related to adding the new buddy by using and not using only the YM id. Is this what you did?

If so try removing that buddy and add him / her in pidgin only with the YM ID.
