Receive a message from IM Networks

I have a website with php that I want to accept and send messages from individuals belonging to IM networks such as MSN. I have found some php include libraries to send messages from php code. Can anybody shed more light on how I can receive messages from individiduals and recommend the best php include libraries to send messages.

Hi angelII,

I w'd recommend to give half of the points to me and refund the other points. This should be okay.

Kind regards,
Henning

Dear phpamble,

you wan't to send and recieve IM messages via PHP, which is implicable impossible. You can send messages via your homepage but receiving of such messages is still impossible, because of that the IM services do not provide any interface which w'd inform you about new messages for example.

Also it differs in perspective, that php is running normally only a few seconds maximum, as a IM app it must run unlimited which could produce some kind of problems.

Kind regards,
Henning

Can you shed any light then on how I can build an intermediate server in C that can intercept the messages from a Jabber IM.

Hi phpamble,

you've posted in PHP, I request now a transfer to C(#). It should be possible with modules from
http://www.jabber.org/index.php/network/

Kind regards,
Henning
