Don't worry. This email address isn't the one I use for Instant Messaging.
I use a windowslive one. Windows Live Messenger works fine, but I prefer
Pidgin.  As Windows Live Messenger works fine I will use this for now.

It could be an ISP or employer's firewall.  In particular, you are posting
with a mobile phone company's name in your email address, and mobile phone
companies, as ISPs, often block instant messaging to preserve their SMS
revenue.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam, that
is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
