I am investigating an alternative to commercial solutions for instant messaging for a client. Jabber seems to be a simple but effective solution.
The only question I have is if I can push the list of users entered in the server (buddy list or roster or friends list or whatever you want to call it) to new users without the end users having to enter the whole list manually? This is key to convincing my client that an in house jabber server is the way to go - they already told me not to waste my time with jabber as a solution if this small thing cannot be accomplished.
Windows server environment, I am not a coder.
Thank you for your time, any help is appreciated.
