Outlook Messenger Software

Hi, we are looking at Outlook Messenger for our internal LAN, I have seen it recommended on a few threads here but have a few questions for those who are using it.

Product detailscan be found here:  http://www.findapp.com/fMgmt/PDetails.aspx?PID=15809

How are you using it?  (all the features or just for IM...)
Is there any spyware associated with it?  
Any problems with purchasing from their website?

It looks good, but at $2 per user for 100 licences, it seems too cheap to not have drawbacks.  We are testing it, but I'd like a second opinion.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Nothing on either of those. Thanks though.
It did not seem to have any rating there. but you can test it and see. I think such software would have problems or spyware, check which ports it is opening.
