Hi,

      I am working on a site in which the list of all registered users of the site are being displayed using ASP session object. Specification requires that a user can select any of the listed users. When a particular user is selected a page (message) should go to that user informing him that the calling user wants to chat with him. Is this possible through ASP ? If so how ? If not how else ? Can anybody guide me on this ?

Thanks in advance

Do you mean via an email message or to an actual pager?  If you want to send to a pager, Steve Genusa has a component that will send to a pager.  You can DL it from http://www.serverobjects.com.  As for email, you can get a free component called JMail from http://www.dimac.net that works very well.

Hi,
    My specification does not require paging via email / pager. What I want to do is send a mesage to the paged user through the web site itself. (Both the paged & the calling users are registered users of the site who are currently logged on to the site.)

So something like email?  If not, you would have to write a "pager" for the web.

That is right. I have to write a pager for the web (but this message comes on the site itself). Can you tell me if this is possible using ASP , maybe using some Application &/ Session object in some way ? If so how ?

You could write a component that "plugs-in" to the server.  You would then post the info to that component which in turn would send the info to the appropriate "pager" software that you have written.

Personal opinion: Email would be better and much easier.
