i don't know what lcs is like (i haven't used windows server 2003), but on unix, you can use farhantoqeer's "write", or talk/ntalk and its corresponding daemon (talkd/ntalkd). the latter might not be installed by default; you'll need to install the package and then enable it in inetd.conf (or xinetd.conf).

i like the jabber idea, myself. i set up a jabber server at my former workplace, and a few people used that, though not as many as i'd hoped (they mostly stuck with msn/yahoo).

jabberd2 works with postgresql just fine. i have it set up like that for a stockbroker in lahore.

just replace --enable-mysql with --enable-psql (or whatever the flag is -- run ./configure --help), in the above-linked installation docs, and use the appropriate sql file.
