If you build it from scratch, it will take a larger arsenal of languages than just one or the other of what you suggested.

The architecture I would go for would use HTML, javascript, ASP (ASP.NET in my case - any other web server technology will do) and a database system (MySQL or SQL Server)

Basically I would keep a table with users and a table of messages.

The messages table would store messages with at least the senderUserID, messageBody and reciepientUserID as fields, with the IDs being values from the unique identifier column in the users table.

Every few seconds, I would have an ASP page query the database for messages that should be delivered to the user.  Once messages are retrieved, they should also be deleted from the table.

When a user types in a message, it is sent to the database and stored in the messages table, with the appropriate sender and reciepient user IDs.

That's pretty much it, in short. Please let me know if you would like me to detail further or if you have any other questions.

Best Regards,
Alex Percsi.
