This all depends on the client, with jabber you are not restricted to
use just one client, which brings quite a few advantages against other
services (and quite a few disadvantages) so it depends on your client if
it's even capable of sending files.
There are other disadvantages to jabber, concerning file transfers, when
it comes to the transports, the transports are rarely able to translate
the file transfer requests to the underlying protocol.
If i haven't scared you away from jabber yet, i recommend you look for a
client that fits you best, some people don't need file transfers nor do
they need some other features. I know it takes a while to find the
client that is just right for you, and do remember that jabber
developers are usually pretty easy to convince in to adding a new
feature, if one asks nicely and possibly offers to buy a beer if they
happen to live nearby..
Oh well, i strayed from the original topic once again... I meant to ask,
which client are you using?
