Where do I need to start to create an Instant Message program that will work over the Internet.  I want this to be my own and of couse it will only see those users that have the program.  Is there an COM add-in I can use or something like that?  Is there anything I need to read up on.  Any help to point me in the right direction would be great.

Thanks!

Read up on Winsock.
Also think about reading up on HTTP and Proxy servers.
