If I remember correctly, Guardians and Defiant can talk to each other.

Mildly related, is the auction house cross faction. Same excuse the war only started a few days ago theres not reason for it to be 'segregated' besides aiding the enemy. I have a feeling that it is not. But I am curious if anybody has noticed.

EDIT: Auction house, Mail system and your friends list is single faction single server. Mail won't admit the player exists while your friends list tells you that the player exists but is on the other faction (which may or may not be nifty).

EDIT2: Not tested by me. (See post 6) You can talk cross faction.

I'm not sure. I'm not sure we'd really have any way of knowing short of having the devs come out and say so. My guess would be no, but I've only visited the auctioneer once and I don't even remember if I searched for anything. It was more, "Oooo! Auction house!" *click* "Spiffy! kbainao"

If you can see Buy/Seller, all you need to do is roll a toon from each side..run them to an AH. Put something on the AH for a stupid high price, change toons and do a search for that item. If you see it with your name next to it, you will know.

Just ran a few tests.

Most are obvious conclusions.

Auction house, mail and your friends list are all single faction single server.

yeah but can you message people from the other faction? It would make world pvp a lot more interesting! lol

not sure about the auction, but in beta 6 i was able to have a conversation with a guardian when i was a defiant and on a pvp server. we discussed beta and didn't attack, it was an interesting exchange for this type of game to say the least and i hope trion keeps it this way.

I kind of like the idea of being able to communicate directly. Though I play on PvP servers there are times when I prefer to just go about my business and finish quests even with a member of the opposite faction in the area (probably doing the same quest line). Being able to make a temporary pact with them would be much easier than trying to communicate through emotes.
