Default Cant get any messenger program to work SimplyMepis 6.0

I am totally new to Linux, I tried the live CD, it works fine, I have now installed it onto a hard disk and am dual booting with XP windows as the main booter.Both are on separate drives. The problem that I am facing is I can not get any messengers to work in Mepis. The messengers (yahoo,MSN, ICQ) all work fine on windows but none work in Mepis. Kopete, which is preinstalled, allowed me to create my account and when i log into it it lists my contacts but when i try to connect to chat with them it shows all of them as offline. to check that, i rebooted to my xp hdrive and theres no problem chatting with them in it.How can i get it to work in any of the chatrooms?
thanks,Jim

Have you checked if there's an update available for Kopete?
