Will it ever be fixed? I doubt it :-(

  Hello all. I'm trying to setup my Windows Live account (@outlook.com)
  in Empathy. It used to work OK on Ubuntu 12.04.4 64 bits. However, in
  14.04 it doesn't works. When I add an account, it asks me for my
  username and password, I give it permissions to access my data, and
  the account is shown OK on the "Online accounts" window. However, when
  I go Online, Empathy shows a wheel in the middle, just turning around,
  but nothing else happens. After a while, it gives me a red error
  message "xxxx@xxxxxxxxxxx Network error"

  I have the debug in pastebin: http://pastebin.com/8vQdM4Pg
