Do you own multiple e-mail accounts with different providers such as Gmail, Yahoo! and MSN? If so then you might be using different instant messenger software to chat with your friends in respective accounts. Usually everyone prefers Gtalk for Gmail, Yahoo! messenger for Yahoo! account and Windows Live Messenger to chat with their friends and also to see the preview of e-mails they receive.
