Matt Gregory, Shachi, Lucia Siochi,


Your best bet for implementing chat with PHP is to set up a relational 
databse for users, messages, and threads.
I would design this application with these interfaces:
  - Read message module
  - Post message module
  - Browse all messages
  - Browse thread
  - Mail management modules
  - User management modules
  - Help modules
This is an extensive project.  Expect it to take you a week or more to 
write.  Then, open source it so I can use it too.  :)
