Welcome to Pocket PC Thoughts.

Here are a few:
Agile Messenger: http://www.agilemobile.com/agile_messenger.html
IM+: http://www.shapeservices.com/en/products/details.php?product=im
imov: http://www.movsoftware.com/products/imov/imov.htm
Mobile Instant Messenger: http://www.webmessenger.com/products/mimwinmobile5.htm

These are all multi-protocol IM clients. There should be trial versions available, so install each one and see which one works best.

Also, if you read this (http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11606), you'll see that an update to Messenger is coming. MSN and Yahoo! interoperability is also likely to kick in shortly, so there's a bright future ahead of Messenger.

IM+ by SHAPE Services is a great IMing app. Very flexible with support for a wide variety of instant messaging clients.

I've been using Agile since WM2003, and like it a lot. There are some stability on WM5 however.

Hey, I'm gonna endorse IM+ also. It works great for managing all my accounts, and it hasn't crashed yet!
