This is because the certificate for rsi.hotmail.com, the server whence offline messages are retrieved, makes libpurple throw up a certificate warning thing which haze throws on the floor.
Workaround: ship the certificate as known-trusted in haze until I get a chance to fix libpurple and then deal with it properly.
Recent libpurples whitelist the rsi.hotmail.com cert, so this works again.
But the underlying problem is not fixed; retitling.
