    Default IM - Disable Yahoo?

    Hi folks, I'm looking into the IM capability currently, but one thing bothers me. When you enable the IM there is the ability to connect to Yahoo. Can I disable this?

    Essentially we want the IM to be internal only. I posted once before a few months back, but there was not much response. I can't use the IM, even though it is requested, if the Yahoo capability is there.

    I'm in a similar situation. Did you manage to disabled the YIM integration?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    I'm not absolutely sure but I think you can't. What you could do, of course, would be to put a firewall in place that disables external access to the IM ports. Newer firewalls are able to recognize IM traffic even if it goes over common ports like 80 and 443, and can stop it even then. That's what I do.

    Of course, one irritating little "feature" is that the same protocol for Yahoo! messenger seems to be used for authentication for signing into Yahoo! webmail, so if I kill one (at least with my firewall) I kill both. . .
    Cheers,

    Having searched through all the CoS options with zmprov I've come to the same conclusion. It seems like a rather important feature for a business to have though, I think it's odd that its been left out!

    Our firewall isn't quite advanced enough to have layer 7 inspection sadly! Still, hopefully I can get it done by blocking YIMs TCP ports.

    Thanks for your reply.

    It seems there isn't any options in the cos to remove it yet.
    But you can make it disappear from the UI by modifying the skins :

    In /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/skins/_base/base2
    Add those lines at the end of the file skins.css :
    .ZmChatGwIcon-offline {
    display:none;
    }

    .ZmStatusImageItem {
    display:none;
    }

    This does not seem to work with ZCS 6.0.

    Did anyone find a way to remove/hide Y! Messenger in 6.0?

    Default skin.css workaround for ZCS 6

    Hi all
    It seems that i found a skin.css workaround for ZCS6.
    Add the following line to /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/skins/_base/base2/skin.css
    Code:
    #z_taskbar_items .ZmTaskbarButtonParent .ZmStatusImageButton { display: none; }
    Could anyone try this and post the if its works for other ZCS6 installations, too?

    Thanks!
