I'm looking to create an app that is able to utilize protocols for all major IM clients. OSCAR/TOC2 for AIM for instance.

If anyone has any knowledge of these protocols, or has any documentation or anything, please PM me. We've got a big project idea, and it'd be great if we got some help.

libpurple is a open source library written in C++ that handles many IM protocols, and is used in many multi-protocol IM clients like Pidgin, Meebo and Adium.

Thanks, but I'm looking to do this in .NET so that I can easily port it to Linux using Mono. I've found .NET libraries for AIM and MSN so far, and it looks like whatever I don't find, I'm going to have to code from scratch. There is probably enough documentation out there on the packet structure for all of these IM clients. If you guys have any documentation on any IM clients (logging in/sending and receiving messages, packet structure), I'd really appreciate that.
