MSN Spim and Pidgin

So I’ve been using pidgin forever now ever since I stopped using miranda-im.  A couple months back, I enabled my MSN account which I haven’t logged into for a while.  Since then, I’ve been receiving MSN IM spam everyday.  EVERYDAY!  Sometimes it gets so bad, it’s almost on the hour.  Today I finally beat the spim.  I could have beaten it on day one, but I was too lazy to check up on pidgin options.

First, go to “Tools” -> “Privacy”.  From here, it’s just a matter of selecting your account and the appropriate privacy settings.  For MSN, I just changed mine to “Allow only the users on my buddy list” and Presto!  I haven’t received any MSN spim since!
