How to get MSN messenger status

P: n/a
Hi all

I really hope some of you can help me.
I ve searched the internet for hours. I would like to get the status of MSN
messenger account by applying the email as the query. I do not want to
search only within my own contact list.
I've seen some examples around the net but they are closed source projects.
They are used to see who is blocking your account.

I would like to do this in Native .NET so no COM typelib.

Hope you can help.

Kind regards

Impossible, well, very difficult. All the others use the TypeLib's to
interface with Messenger.

You'd have to write a client that connects directly to the MSN Messeneger
server, and communicates using the messenger protocol.
