If I'm not mistaken, the Yahoo! messaging client uses destination TCP
5050 (not sure on source, looks to typical stack chosen random):

19:23:05.073722 host.32798 > cs50.msg.sc5.yahoo.com.5050: P 86:154(68)
ack 1 win 8050 <nop,nop,timestamp 533330 3543413278> (DF)
0x0000   4500 0078 8c20 4000 4006 299b c0a8 020a        E..x.. at ...180...@.).....

You should be good with a simple rule that catches anything destined to
TCP 5050, and perhaps kicking off a tcpdump based on the source and
destiion after the first SYNC.
