Tutorials for Messaging System

Does anyone know of a tutorial for creating a messaging system like LinkedIn’s. I want to create an inbox that shows the conversation’s authors on the left side and the messages on the right side, which I have working. But I also want the author’s windows to light up when the user hasn’t read the message and to light up when the user clicks on it. That’s the part I haven’t figured out yet. I’ve worked on it a while and now I’m hoping I can get some help on it. Thanks in advance!

I have been building a messaging system here …

It includes “group” messages (to more than one recipient) and “you have mail” alerts.


Thanks Nigel. I’ll check this out!
