Depending on what you want to achieve you have several approach:

- If you need a chat server for your work, that rely on standards,  
maybe you could just simply reuse an existing one like ejabberd:
http://www.process-one.net/en/projects/ejabberd/

- If you want to write a chat server for learning or if you do not  
need to support standards, you could simply write a chat client in  
pure Erlang based on message passing mechanisms.

I hope this helps,
