    Default Jabber Client deployable via Active Directory/Group Policy

    Can anyone recommend a jabber client I can deploy from Windows 2008 to Windows Vista clients? I had been looking at Pidgin but there is a ton of work to get that all packaged into msi files for deployment. I found Pandion but there is no official msi package and in order for it to install properly some of the install process would have to be done at the administer level in vista (not ideal).

    Has anyone done this and if so can they recommend a setup?

    I have never done it but there is Spark by Ignite Realtime. If you really want to get jiggy with it You can develop your own branded client since Spark is open source. I did it here at my company.

    Spark looks good but I cannot get it to connect to my Zimbra server at all.

    Would you be kind enough to share an example setup?

    I have

    User - name@example.com
    Pass - pass
    Server - mail.example.com

    Advanced Options - Attempt 1
    Connection
    Host - Automatically Discover Checked

    Advanced Options - Attempt 2
    Connection
    Host - example.com

    Neither of these attempts worked, Attempt 1 does produce authentication errors but Attempt 2 just times out.

    There's a trick - Spark and Zimbra - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Value for the login screen server section: domain.com
    Value for host inside advanced: server.domain.com
