You need to uncheck the "clientLogin" box in the account settings. This is fine for migrated settings, but for new accounts, it breaks until you uncheck with a completely bogus SSL error.

  • Upstream bug set to LP:831624 LP:506647
  • Milestone changed from The Distant Future to Upstream Utopia

Those are two different upstream bugs, but the fix is the same: Pidgin (and friends) don't quite support "clientLogin". Documented in knowledge base
