Have you thought about PikiFriends?

It's free and could meet your needs. I have hundreds of my Japanese jr/sr high school students on it, and they love communicating with Americans and French students right now. Sign up on the homepage.

I recommend TR Workbench. I've spoken with the creator, and am very impressed with not only the product but the company as well.
