Instant messenger feature?

P: n/a
Hi,

Can someone please put me right here.

I've been asked to send messages to instant messenger through my asp.net 1.1
website, as a feature of a message board that I had to hand code.

I don't believe this is possible. IM is a client app that accesses a private
server on its own port (i.e not accessible through normal web)

I was told about XMPP Open Protocol but from what I can see this still has a
client server to run the Messenger.

So I want some way to get a message to be sent from my website and appear on
someones instant messenger.

This is not possible (Correct ???)

If you can give an explanation that would be great to convince the powers to
be.
