> If JEP-0013 is not supported out of the box in jabberd 1.4.3 or jabberd2, then I'm still at square 1. Also, JEP-0013 only addresses the message flooding issue when it comes to offline messages. Ideally, I'd like to be able to perform this POP-like request/retrieval on all messages destined for my client regardless of whether the message is in the offline store. At this point, I don't know how else to get jabber to behave the way I want without "reinventing the wheel" and implementing my own queuing mechanism within a custom jabber component. I'm not too happy about it at all.

The whole point of Jabber is decidedly *not* store-and-forward, it is
immediate delivery. If you need POP, maybe implement all this using a
mail server.
