This is a tamed down version of the original string I proposed on the mailing
list.  I'm not convinced that it's a good idea to search for "oracle" (even
case insensitively) in account names as the sole indicator of whether this
message should appear or not, because we have in the past had Oracle employees
who could not even manage to connect to their internal XMPP service; a check
for an existing account would be entirely unhelpful in this case.

At any rate, this revision introduces a new string (not translatable, per
Daniel's suggestion) to indicate to Oracle employees that they need to contact
their internal helpdesk or IT department for support.
