I have been reading about gateways and want to build a new CF11 application to use it. What I want is that my application can comunicate with operators in the field, two ways, realtime, so that every operator has his own personal postbox. Is this possible?
Can anyone help?

Yes, it is possible. In fact, ColdFusion 11 offers you a number of choices, depending on your needs.
You could use the JMS and ActiveMQ gateways to implement a messaging platform between base-station (the company or back office) and operators. You may then use queues for point-to-point ('personal') messages and topics for publish-subscribe messaging. If you want just a light, chat-like messaging platform, then you could use websockets.
Thank you very much BK!!! That gives me confidence because I had already started playing with activemq.
