    I would like a program that would not require the visitor to my site to install any software. Yet works through the standard messenger services such as MSN, Yahoo, ETC. The messenger would be activated via a flash button. Any ideas?

    TIA

    To clarify....you want your users to use a web-based client to talk to you on one of the standard IM platforms, correct?

    I think you could do this if you were running a jabber server. You could use a web front-end jabber client for your users, then a back-end IM transport for MSN, Yahoo, etc. Not sure about launching the jabber webclient via flash, but I can't see why that wouldn't work. The client would be javascript and html.

    That sounds great, complicated but great! Could you send me in the direction to look? Where I might find an 'IM transport' and other pieces to gather so I can cobble it together.

    That'll get you started. First thing you need is jabber...everything else is an add-on.

    Thanks, I think. This might be a week or two of my life GONE! But, when I get it up and running, it will be all worth it. Thanks ExJoe
