Is it possible to send messages from different programs simultaneously
using only one account?

I'm writing a small email2jabber converter script for Nagios that
pops up a message on all technician's desktops on critical errors.
This works so far using "jabberclass-0.8" (PHP).

But as this program reacts on emails via /etc/aliases, it may happen that 
more than one instance gets started simultaneously but only the first one
is allowed to log in, all the others get "connection has been replaced"
error messages.

This account does not need to be visibly online or receive any answers
I just want to (mis)use Jabber to replace the old Samba+Winpopup

(Of course I could implement it like a single threaded printer-spooler
but maybe there already is a Jabber way of accomplishing it...)
