Am pretty new on the site.
I have worked a lot in network monitoring and net data transfer protocols (lots of telephony protocols decoding, widely reverse engineering, etc). I have cloned Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, ICQ Messenger and AOL Messenger, so far.

I have already developed such an application under Delphi.
Here is a small demo with a demo interface, too (check the archive).

It has almost all the features (there are some of them supported by the components but not included into the application). The file transfer will be inserted if you will accept my bid. As long as the job is already done, I assume that we can finish the project pretty quick! Concerning the page for registering, if it is convenient to you to use the default hotmail wizard, it should be already done!
In the previously presented condition this is my bid, and the promise I'll finish the job pretty soon. If you want additional stuff added to the app (voice, video, etc) this should be another price (you cand accept my bid as it is and we will develop an additional advanced module for that, later).

This is my vision! If you have any questions, please reply!

Best Regards,
