Do you have the JUD (Jabber User Directory) installed on your server? Or 
you can just use users.jabber.org (IIRC JabberD comes configured for that)

DNS set up properly? You would usually use conference.sphim.com, 
muc.sphim.com, chat.sphim.com as the chatroom (MUC) server.

You are using a MySQL database? I think this should be possible then.

Usually just ask on jadmin or jdev.
