[Update 04/01/2014] Have switched over to new certificates. You should not get any errors about “self-signed certificates” any more and there should be no further interruptions of service.
I’m replacing the SSL certificates on both jabber.org.uk and xmpp.org.uk. This is to replace old self-signed certificate with certificates from a CA (Certificate Authority). It should eliminate any problems with self-signed certificates and increase your security of the service. This may cause some interruptions but hopefully all should switch over without too much problem.

There are some upcoming configuration changes that I am going to implement to increase security. The key change that may impact users is that you will be required to use c2s (Client to Server) encryption. Most clients will use this automatically so should not be effected. If you are having problems please use the contact form.

Due to some abuse I’m afraid we’ve had to restrict MUC/Conferencing rooms to users of this Jabber/XMPP server only.

As originally announced back in November we’ve found out today that Windows Messenger will be turned off March 15th. We will continue to run the MSN transport until such time as the servers stop working.

The service was down overnight due to a server overloading. We’re investigating this to make sure it does not happen again. All services are now up and available again.
