Maybe ejabberd?

Just execute the installer (or use packages or source), and in a few minutes 
you'll have a running ejabberd server. The import users from jabberd 1.4 as 
described on http://ejabberd.jabber.ru/jabberd1-to-ejabberd

Tutorials to get transports working with ejabberd can be found at:
