Empathy 2.30.3 has many bugs! Import acounts from pidgen does not work, and it only supports, japper, facebook and Google on when entering accounts.

Yup, Empathy sucks,

I only use MSN, and it doesn't want to work at all. It was just saying 'connecting'. So I uninstalled 'telepathy-butterfly' package, so the Empathy would solely use 'telepathy-haze' instead. After having done that I could finally login to my profile. However, whatever messages I send people on the other side, they don't receive them. I receive theirs fine.

Empathy is really disappointing...

Install telepathy-haze, and you can enter accounts for the other protocols. Lack of features is not the same thing as bugs. If it works as designed, it's not a bug.
