Messenger service

Hi I am about to start a project in delphi.

I plan to create a basic messenger service like msn, icq ect..  but basic.
I want the messenger to work from the forum sql database so to sign in it would be forum username and password, to add members then username is enough and member would get PM on forum a little bit like myspace works.

does anyone have some ideas of a good start point...

firstly thanks for the help.

I tried the site but I can only speak English and Latin and would be guessing which to download.
maybe you can help me,
I am knew to this kind of field, not delphi but messenger.

I have research x2 ways.

1. everyone downloads the file from my site which is similar to p2p can you remember winmx? well I am guessing it kind of opens a port and connects to other machines who have the file also.
So would I program a p2p on the thinking that you connect "from" your own PC that auto finds and insets your IP as a connection method?

2. or do I program a client/ server?   everyone downloads the server file and the client, they execute the server and it installs which opens a port then they use the client to be a instant messenger?
but this is to close to a trojan?   also I would need to reverse connect ?

I am confused on the best and easiest way to create a basic instant message service for forum members to download and login through my forum sql to chat to each other.
must be delphi only.
