Use the appscript examples + the OS X script-editor to see what scriptable
properties exactly the IM-application offers. You can drag the
application-icon into the script-library.

Use the appscript examples + the OS X script-editor to see what scriptable
properties exactly the IM-application offers.
You can also use ASDictionary (http://appscript.sourceforge.net/
tools.html) to export application dictionaries in appscript format. As
an added bonus, installing ASDictionary allows you to use appscript's
built-in help method to explore application dictionaries and object
models from the interactive python interpreter.
