An IM bot basically serves as an interface for accessing a specific on-line service.
 
An IM bot is a program that acts like a real contact/buddy. To use an IM bot, you just have to add its id to your contact list and communicate with it — as if it is a real person. This virtual contact accepts commands from you (via IM messages through the usual chat window) and responds with appropriate answer. An IM bot basically serves as an interface for accessing a specific on-line service. For instance, the MSN IM bot Encrata Instant answers ( encarta@botmetro.net) allows you to obtain answers to your queries from the MSN Encarta Encyclopedia (http://encarta.msn.com/)
 
Imifed ( http://www.imified.com) lets you manage online notes, to-do lists and the like directly from your IM client. By just adding the ' Imified@imified.com' buddy to your contact list and sending a message to this buddy, you can create an account with this service. To post a note, just send it as a message to the contact 'Imified'
