Yes. The idea of instant error is interesting, but the problem for what
to do with the error then rely on the client.
If this is a simple chat message, then no problem, I wait for the next
time I see my correpondant online.
But if this is an important message that I want him to read as soon as
he gets online ?
I am using Jabber as some kind of text voicemail for people that are not
I agree however that I never encountered a Jabber server that was down
when I tried to leave a message waiting for someone.
And I agree that the problem with mail is to process error message that
come afterwards. Clients has still to process the error message when it
comes as a definitive failure of delivery.
