At my work we have google talk accounts and google mail.
if i log into the google talk client on my PC i use the format firstname.lastname@mycompany.com

if i open the account at google i goto http://mail.google.com/m/mycompany.com
and log in using the same firstname.lastname@mycompany.com
that all works fine.

On my Android phone it does not matter what client i use i can not log into the account.
i have tried,
HiTalk
Imeasy
beejive
meebo

and there have been others but i forget them all now. I am currently working around the problem by doing this..
on the meebo website i was able to setup my google account to feed a meebo account. now i can log into meebo on the phone and have my Google talk IM available. however meebo idles and disconnects with inactivity.

does anyone know of a client that will let me log into my corp account from my phone...

If you have an Android Phone you could just remove all of your gmail accounts from the phone and sign in with your work account first.  This would make it the default account on the phone and make it the sign in ID for the Android Talk client that is built in.

If you do not like that idea, then yes, a Meebo account configured for your accounts on your PC then logged into Meebo (and not Talk) from your phone should do it.  If it is logging out you are losing reception to the data network.  I have used Meebo as you describe.
