Microsoft Office Communicator: error message with ID 504 means “you think the other party is on-line, but it is off-line”

The Error ID 504 is just an unfrienly way of saying “your contact went off-line, but you didn’t know that when sending the message, and I don’t have a friendly way of telling you this”.
