    IM application based on email only

    Hi,

    Complete novice here, but I am interested in creating an instant messaging application, which can add users based off their email address alone.

    Does this sound possible?

    Thanks.

    Can you give more details? Do you want to use an email address as the username?

    Essentially, I am trying to create a system whereby within an app/program, you use standard email protocols (IMAP/Pop 3) to send messages between users.

    I do not want people to have to create user accounts within the app, they just simply email someone as they normally would, but this lives within a 'chat' app, like a Facebook chat or MSN, which would allow notifications etc.

    Any clearer?
