well if you use AOL or google or one of the other services you add your account, so if you send them a message using one of those other services, you can communicate through that account using iMessage. you configure your accounts and add them in, make sure their contact information is compatible and viola.

Could have been via SMS or Jabber (inc Facebook) - both answers above but you need to know (or remember, or ask), what service they might have been receiving them on?
