The instant messaging service allows you to communicate with your colleagues in an easy and effective way. The service is open to every user that has a RESTENA email address. To connect, just use :

usernameyour RESTENA email address ( only)
passwordyour RESTENA password

For adding one of your colleagues to your contacts, you only need to know his/her email address.

There is also the possibility to communicate with people having a messaging account from another provider, as long as it also uses XMPP (Jabber), ie GTalk from Google.

Here you can find a list of XMPP (Jabber) client accessible on the Internet.
