This can be easily done. If you notice, you have created your free self trial account on the “mithiskyconnect.com” domain. You can also get your colleague (or colleagues) to create other free self trial account on the and now both or more of you are part of the same domain, mithiskyconnect.com. You can follow the steps to add each other as buddies in the chat system and start texting and talking to each other.
