"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."
