Jive Messenger and mail server

Can Jive messenger and mail server(doesn’'t metter which one,for example Exim) use the same database?

Can I produce the registration (in Jive Messenger) of users that are registered at mail server automaticly?

I’'ll explane: When user creates his mail account, the Jive Messenger account is created automaticly.

Is it possible?

Hi Sorantis,

Can Jive messenger and mail server(doesn’'t metter which one,for example Exim)

use the same database?

Yes. Messenger can be configured to use any POP3 mail server as its user store out-of-the-box. If your mail server doesn’'t support POP3, you could write a custom UserProvider and AuthProvider that connects directly to your mail server to do authentication and load user profile data.

Hope that helps,


Thank you for quick answer!

How can I configure Messenger to use POP3 mail server?


Pardon me for silly questions ,I’'m newbie in this .

Is there any user manual, or documentation of Jive Messenger?

I’'ve read the doc presented on main page, but found only database setup and something about LDAP and SSL.

But nothing like HOWTO or something similar.

Is there any documentation avaliable?


Hi Sorantis,

There should be a documentation directory in your Messenger installation directory which you can use, or you can view the documenation online url=http://jivesoftware.org/builds/messenger/docs/latest/documentationhere[/url]. Unfortunately, the documentation does not yet have instructions on how to configure Messenger to use POP3 authentication, for that take a look at url=http://jivesoftware.org/community/thread.jspa?threadID=15419this thread[/url].

Hope that helps,


I’'ve read this documentation but found it poor.

So, as I can understand main documentation is forum

Ok, if I’'ll have any questions, I know where I can find answers

Thank you very much!

There is additional info here

That explain the various properties of the AuthProvider

sorry about the long URL the forums wrap long lines weird.
