No it is not possible unless you can create a rule which automatically sends an email out from the account to those subscribed on log on. –  Dave Rook Sep 14 '12 at 11:11

You can install pidgin and setup your talk accounts.

Then, go to Tools menu, and choose Bounces (or contact notifications). There you choose the account, then the kind of notification you want (for example, when the contact becomes online).

In the action frame, you can select what you want to do. Pidgin can automatically open an IM window for you, show some kind of on screen notification, make a sound, send some message to your contact, and even execute some kind of script you build. My pidgin is not in english, so maybe some terms are not exactly as I mentioned them. But I'm sure you'll get what you're looking for.
