Interesting that this comes up at the same time that we are reviewing IM
services and security. I have thought about Jabber (I have used it at
home), so I just might suggest it. Right now we are using a mix of Yahoo
and MSN. As I've mentioned to others, AIM seems to have been hit more
lately than others with malware and the like, so I would suggest staying
away from that. Personally, I stay away from IM at work. A window pops
up from a buddy outside of work and next thing you know, you are giving
him your password without realizing it because the window received the
focus ...
