Our office uses instant messaging frequently for quick chats between users. Right now we're using OnLAN Messenger because it has centralized server logging which is an important feature for us. Unfortunately, the software as a whole sucks! Does anyone know of a better solution out there? I'm looking for something with centralized server logging but the ease of use of something like Skype.

I'd like to avoid Java based solutions.

OnLAN sucks because it is generally unreliable and the user interface is horrible.

There are not so many server based Im solutions. Jabber is the one most popular. Here is a list of available jabber servers http://xmpp.org/xmpp-software/servers/

We are using Openfire as the server and Spark as the client.  Openfire does message archiving.
