I have allready try this :
sudo gedit /usr/share/pyshared/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py

search :
 url = "http://contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"

and replace by :
url = "http://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
url = "https://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
url = "https://local-sn.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
url = "http://local-sn.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"

killall telepathy-butterfly

but nothing else...

And so I look for RequestMultipleSecurityTokens.py
to verify CONTACTS = ("contacts.msn.com", "MBI")
It is still good !

So I don't know...

Same problem with yahoo contacts : they can see me but I can't see them even if they're online.

(problem also with Facebook chat : I can see my contacts, they can see me and talk to me but I can't talk to them. Maybe it's linked, maybe not ?)
