Need reccomendation on office chat program

we want to setup a chat room in our office so we can im each other with questions etc instead of always getting up from our desks.........we tried Microsoft V chat 2.0 (it was good, but had no im feature) and we tried Vypress chat which is plain awful (it has im, but it is inconsistent and confusing)...anyone know of any good freebies we should try?

--thanks, dave

Does your firewall prevent you from using AIM, Yahoo Etc...?

At my office we use Sametime from Lotus, which I am pretty sure is not free..

we want something that will allow us to communicate intra-office, ie no outside contact/distraction .

we used aol IM for that. but not sure if its only available intranet. maybe MSN Messenger will allow that.
setup an internal office list to pop up messages to each other... but our boss never used it so now we just use it to gossip. funny 'cause we'll type and then someone will start laughing for no apparent reason
