NetCmdlets: Sending Google Talk IMs with a Non-@gmail User Account

When using the Send-IM NetCmdlet to send a Google Talk IM from a user account that does not end in, you must set the UserDomain parameter.

For example, if your user account is, you would set the User and UserDomain parameters as follows:

PS> Send-IM -Server -SSL automatic -User JohnDoe
-UserDomain -Password yourpassword -Message “Some Message”
