Other domains

Users need to have accounts on at least one of the services used by each 
of the other people.

Pidgin doesn't care about domain names, but the services may do.  I 
think at least some services will accept user names in the form of email 
addresses with any domain name, even if there are some domain names 
typically associated with that service.  I think the Microsoft ones did 

Generally, you need to understand that Pidgin is a multi-service client, 
but the sort of restrictions you are talking about are set by the 
server, not the client.
