The ability to chat has always been an essential feature for my organizations usage.  This product provides this feature once again!  Thank you!  

Some recommended changes:

1.  User can not rename friend after the original invite screen.  I press "Okay" and nothing happens.

2.  It would be nice if the chat window was to the FAR BOTTOM-RIGHT within the "Friend List" border, versus overlaying my emails in the preview pane.  The app already uses about 1/10 of the right side of the screen.  I see no need to have chat box any place else, using more space.

3.  When a use is "Invisible", other users see their status as "Invisible".  This sort of defeats the purpose of being invisible, I think.

4.  When a new message is received, the box not only flashes...but, it also pops open.  It would be nice if it didn't pop open.  It would also be nice to have an indicator other than the flashing.  Maybe a change in font color of name in Friends List to indicate a new message arrived from them.

Just some suggestions to an otherwise great idea.  Thanks!

Hello diallo0024!

First of all, thank you for you feedback!
The contact renaming issue and the "user feedback" for incoming messages you report has already been fixed in version 0.94, while the Invisible feature a are being worked on.
I'll be more than glad to forward your feedback about the chat windows' positioning to the design team.

Thank you again for both your praises and suggestions, for being patient about some "youth issues" of our product, and most of all for helping us making ZeXtras Chat a better product!

Have a nice day,
Cine
the ZeXtras Team

Just loaded it on my server and it
works great!

The project is young but developing very quickly. A quick visit to their website shows
promise of some great features that are possibly coming down the road
like integration with Asterisk!

Fantastic! Of course it is at an almost early stage but it works! Users are happy again.

At the moment it is not very personalizable and it lacks smileys but ... it really works!

Simply what Zimbra 8 was missing!
