Enabling Google Talk from BESX?

Hello all,


I am in the process of installing BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express 5.0.3, and I would like for smartphones connected to the BESX setup to be allowed to use Google Talk (and possibly Yahoo Messenger and other IM applications as well).


May I know what steps are needed to enable Google Talk with BESX, and to arrange for the necessary service books to be pushed from BESX to the smartphones? I have tried searching for instructions in the BES documentation, but without much luck.


Thank you!
