"Openfire is a great instant messaging server for enterprises
that want to control the way IM is used on the corporate intranet.
It?s easy to get started with Openfire, and once you?ve got the
software up and running, you can experiment with the various
third-party plugins to make your Openfire install even more useful.
Here?s a quick rundown on three that you may find particularly
handy: Email Listener, Broadcast, and Content Filter.
"You install all Openfire plugins the same easy way, from the
Plugins tab of the Openfire admin console. Click the link to
download the available plugins list, then click the green + button
by the relevant plugin to install it. Once installed, plugins
disappear from the Available Plugins list, and appear instead on
the Plugins list. However, you can?t set up plugin options from
this list; you have to manage different plugins from different
parts of the main Server console."
