mod_offline_email

Introduction

Quite often when I am out and about, I'm not able to connect to Jabber. It is usually much more likely I can access my email though (whether via the web, or a mobile client).

For this reason I decided it would be extremely useful to have Jabber messages sent to me while I was offline forwarded to my email inbox.

Usage

Simply add "offline_email" to your modules_enabled list. When any user receives a message while they are offline, it will automatically be forwarded via mail to the same address as their Jabber ID. e.g. user1@example.com's offline messages will be forwarded to user1@example.com's email inbox.

Configuration

Option Description
queue_offline_emails The number of seconds to buffer messages for, before they are sent as an email. The default is to send each message as it arrives.
smtp_server Address of the SMTP server to send through. Default 'localhost' (recommended, see caveats below)
smtp_username If set, Prosody will authenticate with the SMTP server before sending (default is no authentication)
smtp_password The password for the above user (default is none)
smtp_from Address from which it will appear the emails came. Default is smtp_username@smtp_server, where smtp_username is replaced with 'xmpp' if not set
