A less immediate, but longer term, solution would be to convince your
contacts to adopt Google Talk (or any other XMPP-based system that has
server-to-server service).  XMPP is an open standard, anybody can run a
server for it (see packages ejabberd, jabberd2, etc) and individual XMPP
sites can exchange messages with other sites (most of my contact list is
on Google even though I run my own server).
