You can add other players to your Friends List. Type :friend NAME, and it's done! People on your Friends List will always appear at the top of the Name Listing on the right side of the screen if they are online.

You can send PMs to players on other servers.

It is also possible to send PMs to people who are offline. When they log back in, they will see the messages you left for them.
