Allow users to send only broadcast messages?

I am running OpenFire 3.4.1 - and woudl like to restrict certain groups of users to send private messages - instead when they send a message it gets broadcast to everyone in the group - so for example lets say I have a group called Sales - everyone in that group would only be able to send broadcast messages to each other - but in another group - Tech - users could still send private messages to each other

is somethign like this possible? If so, how - or where is the documentation about setting this up?


I don’t think this is possible with current Openfire and available plugins. You will need a special plugin, which will be able to intercept whether a message is a broadcast or not and store such filter based on groups. Packet Filter plugin can only filter all messages.
