Im looking for an instant messenger for corperate use that is secure, not leaving an trails on the internet, and also has the option to send message to a blackberry through a BES server. Does anyone know if something like this available?

There is nothing that leaves no trails. Everything you do can be potentially traced depending on the skill and power of your adversary. There are ways that will make it more difficult for an adversary to trace you/figure out what you are doing.
One of the easiest ways to increase security is by using encryption and you will want to choose messaging software that has this capability.
It will prevent someone from spying on your employees' conversations while they are in transit on the untrusted internet.
Two free and open solutions that I can think of off the top of my head are IRC and SILC. Both support various forms of encryption. If you do not have any knowledge setting up servers you will most likely not want to use these solutions.
Assuming that you have a BES server installed on top of a Exchange, Groupwise, or Lotus Domino server you can just use the native messaging options of that particular software (I don't know of Microsoft's, Lotus Sametime, Novell GroupWise). To greatly increase security on those networks without any server-side upgrades use Off the Record Messaging. It will allow you to enable encryption client side through a third party messaging client like Pidgin. This is far more easy to setup but will require each employee to set it up on his/her own.August 22, 2009 at 2:13 pm #175393ashonikerParticipant

Try CD messenger. CD Messenger is the only “All in One” solution available in the market which includes all features in one application. You need not to download separate application for sticky, instant messaging, task manager and event reminder. The important significant of Corporate Digital Messenger (CD Messenger) is SSL Security. The software is 100% secured so the data would be secured and also stored on server that can be accessed anytime from anywhere as it does not depend on LAN connection.
