    Default IM: MSN and other networks

    Hi

    I enabled IM on my 5.0.1 ZCS with the following commands
    Code:
    zmprov -l -v mcf zimbraXMPPEnabled TRUE
    zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureIMEnabled TRUE
    zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureInstantNotify TRUE
    restart server
    But there is no icon in the webclient for adding a MSN (or other) buddy, only local Zimbra accounts... How can I enable this?

    Thanks,
    Tobias

    you can't! that functionality may be added again at a later date. but for now you can only IM to members of the local server.

    and with the new "feature" in 5.0.1 you can't use external IM clients to connect to the Zimbra IM server....

    And in other posts is written, that it works with 5.0 GA if you enable it (f.e. http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...messaging.html)

    So, I think it should be possible to activate it on GA. But I don't know how =(

    even when enabled you can only IM people on the same server. You can no longer IM people on MSN etc. It is noted in the 5.0.1 release notes.

    Ok, I read it in the release notes...

    Update about Instant Messaging feature - In order to ensure the
    scalability of our server software and provide a quality experience to our
    customers, we have removed IM interoperability with AOL and MSN that
    was present in previous 5.0.0 beta releases. This functionality may be
    restored in a future release.
    But, are you shure that it's fully removed (code) or only disabled via configuration?

    I think it should be possible to enable it so it can be tested to give a feedback to zimbra for improving it and then release it in a later version...
