Well i just switched from hotmail to gmail because i was not able to support the windows logo appearing on my screen any more , so i'm using pidgin with gmail, but when i've added my hotmail contacts it's saying "To Pending" since two weeks , well i know the distance between me and my friends is long but going walking might be faster then !

so it's possible to use gmail messenger to talk with hotmail contacts ? and if yes how .

Thanks in advance for any help.
