We are running OpenFire 3.6.2 and Spark 2.6.0 Beta 2.
Internally everything works great. We have a need for some people to use the Public IM networks and here are my questions:
I know that you have to login to each IM network that you want to IM (MSN, Yahoo, AOL, etc). The icon is greyed out and is colored when the login is successful
If you want to add contacts for
- What is the template for entering in a contact for the username? Do we add the @msn.com or @hotmail.com or @yahoo.com or just the userID
Does the person you added need to have the IM client for the respectice IM network open to show online or do they simply just need to be logged into the mail account.
We are just having some issues with getting people set up with contacts on Public IM networks…any docs would be most appreciated…
I would really like a process on how to login to the Public IM networks (including the format that is required to login – with without @publicim.com )
I would then like the template to add contacts to each of these networks so I can pass that on to some others (I knwo that you have to check the Public IM box and choose the network, but not sure if you need @publicimnetwork.com when adding a contact or the userid only).
Does the recipient need to accept anything before you see thier status?
