RE: Survey: Chat and IM

there are issues with AIM and Yahoo chat clients, I am not too sure what it is that you want to use these clients for, 
but here is how I dealt with it. You can't recieve files through it, and If I see it left on over night I dole out 
swift beatings with brightly colored keyboards.

        Good Luck ...  We got shot down in Flames, no matter how we packaged it.

        Hi, 

        We currently are allowing web based chat and instant messaging.  I know that 
        there are lots of security issues involved with its usage.  The IT folks are 
        telling me that it is a common practice in the industry.  I have a hard time 
        believing this and this is one battle I would like to take on. 

        QUESTION:  DOES YOUR COMPANY ALLOW WEB BASED CHAT AND INSTANT MESSAGING?  If 
        this was a battle you fought, could you please give me some ideas on how you 
        won the battle.  Any good articles/white papers that could support my 
        position?
