The deciding factor is whether or not they use the same instant 
messaging service, not whether or not they use the same email provider.

At a guess you use Google's instant messaging and they use MSN, in which 
case the answer is no.

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.
