we are just using the built in iChat server in OS X server 10.4..  think it uses some hacked up version of jabberd though...  is it possible to set up "groups" w/in the clients view?

FOr example we have internal employees and external employees

can i have a user open thier chat and have Internal Users then below a list of online and offline users

then under that have another title:  External users.. where all internal and external users are listec below that....

I want to do this rather than just have all chat users listed one after another...  this way i can group them.

ANy help would be great

    The only way of doing this that I know of is actually on the iChat client itself. You can put contacts into Groups...

    But this means going around to every single Mac iChat client and keeping that list up to date. I have never seen that feature built into the Chat Server.

    I have just found this below but that is for 10.6:
