GAIM supports Jabber, an open XML-based IM protocol that can be used to set up a corporate IM server. Jabber is not supplied with Ubuntu, but you can obtain additional information about it from the Jabber home page at http://www.jabber.com/. You can obtain the Jabber server, Jabberd, from http://jabberd.jabberstudio.org/. If you want to use GAIM locally for collaboration, Jabber would be an excellent choice for a private local server.
