zmprov modifyAccount $ACCOUNT zimbraFeatureIMEnabled FALSE
I see the current status is:
zmprov getAccount $ACCOUNT | grep IM
I you want to disable IM for all users do something like this:
for ACCOUNT in $( zmprov -l gaa ) ; do echo $ACCOUNT ; zmprov modifyAccount $ACCOUNT zimbraFeatureIMEnabled FALSE ; done
What a shame to see the messenger go.... It is a big plus to have it nicely packaged with the email and this is after all a calibration server. We love the messanger and believe it is a good reason to chose Zimbra over Exchange. It comes in very handy when your working as a team on a project.
Any chance that VMWare will reconsider?
Thank you for your speddy reply!
You may not know the answer to this, but do you buy chance know if it is going to be completely gone, or just the server back-end piece? I don't mind setting up another xmpp server, I just like having all the communication consolidated in one central location in the browser UI.
but I still wonder why not go for a dedicated EIM server like openfire or ejaabed which can offer lot of very good functionalities as compare to Zimba IM. I mean you can give a try and have your users slowly migrated to new EIM server.
Now I understand why Zimbra is making this move. I actually think that is a great idea! We have openfire in the past and really liked it. Thanks for clarifying the plans for me!
@ mavlenko's Thank you for your post very helpful and must have instructions on how to enable internal IM for Zimbra 7....
Zimbra please dont remove “internal IM” for future release. I don’t understand you add non sense like social networking modules by default but remove a critical feature like "Internal IM"
