I’'m having an issue with Offline Messaging - Mostly on the Yahoo gateway, but could impact others-
The issue that I’'m having is that I have a number of users that communicate with Yahoo contacts who have their status set to “Appear Offline”. The Openfire server (3.3.1) stores the messages and holds them until the user returns back to an online status- (As designed)
The problem is, the user is just “appearing” offline- they may never set their status to be ''online" for days or even weeks at a time, and never get the messages.
Is there a way to work around this? I’'d prefer to have the offline messages forwarded to the Yahoo network regardless of the status and let the Yahoo network sort out the gory details of offline messaging.
Help would be appreciated- This is the one function holding up a wide corporate deployment because a few sales users communicate this way almost exclusively.
