Hey Frank,

Which feature are you referring to? Clients must indicate their unavailability by sending presences.

Hi Gato,

I’'m referring to this feature:

http://www.xmpp.org/specs/rfc3921.txt

5.1.5. Unavailable Presence

Before ending its session with a server, a client SHOULD gracefully

become unavailable by sending a final presence stanza that possesses

no ‘‘to’’ attribute and that possesses a ‘‘type’’ attribute whose value

is “unavailable” (optionally, the final presence stanza MAY contain

one or more elements specifying the reason why the user is

no longer available).

The client will send something like that to the server while logging out:

I will be back tomorrow

This is usefull in an environment where Jabber is the source to look where colleagues are at the moment.

Regards,

Frank

Hey Frank,

We support that feature. In fact, for the last version of Messenger (i.e. 2.1.1) we did a modification so that when a user sends an unavailable presence the server won’'t send messages to that connection. Note: Previous versions required the user to disconnect from the server.. OTOH, establishing a connection is no longer enough in order to be able to receive messages. Now the client needs to send an available presence.

In summary, sending an available presence makes the connection eligible for receiving messages whilst sending an unavailable presence indicates the server that the connection is not available for other users.

Hi Gato,

I’'ve tried it again today with a different client and it works, maybe it was a client-issue at my first tests.

Thanks
