I would like use the Google Talk without @gmail.com email address, using my own domain name email address.

  • My domain is example.com
  • My email address is example@example.com

I'm registering Google Account this email address, but not create Gmail account: gqy@example.com. I would like my email address is pidgin for Google Talk.

I use Debian Wheezy (7.3) and Pidgin (libpurple) 2.10.6. Tried using this but did not work.

How to use Google Talk with Google Account, but without Gmail?

I don't use Google Apps for my domain name.

Very thanks!
