Too much, too many people, too much ... so I have decided to stop registration of new users.

Oh no, why?

Please, read it on

Conversations with audio and video calls has been released. In restricted networks conversations will use dismails server to proxy the encrypted traffic. Please report any issues.

XMPP message archive (MAM) policy changed:

Archived XMPP messages now expire after 7 days, it was 21 days before.

You might have noticed short XMPP outages today. They were caused by problems with the database servers. Everything is back to normal, sorry for any inconvenience.

Some people have asked why the XMPP server was migrated to ejabberd, what I liked about Prosody, why I have chosen Prosody in the first place and what I recommend for beginners - prosody or ejabberd.
Please read it on

XMPP migration is almost finished

The new nodes are up and running, but there are some problems with imported MUCs.
Somehow the ejabberd importer didn't imported the MUCs properly. If you are a dismail MUC Admin and don't want to wait until I have found a solution, you can "fix" it by yourself by deleting and recreating your MUC.
If you need any assistance please contact me. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Scheduled XMPP downtime on Sunday, November 3th 05:00-08:00 UTC

The XMPP service will be migrated from Prosody to ejabberd. During the migration XMPP and the account registration will not be available. The estimated downtime is 3 hours.

Due to maintenance work, the following webservices will not be available on Friday between 4:00 and 05:00 UTC


Today, the database servers has been migrated from a master-slave to a multi-master architecture (2 DB nodes + 1 quorum).
Everything is working as expected, but maybe some adjustments have to be made in the next days. This shouldn't cause any issues, but who knows.

XMPP - prosody to ejabberd migration

As first part of the long planned prosody migration I have finally started with the evaluation and testing of ejabberd. This will take some time, as there are some dismail specific things to take into account.
If I do not come across any showstoppers, prosody will be migrated to ejabberd in a few weeks.

fdns1 - With the last maintenance two small nasty bugs slipped in, which made some DNS clients to fail sometimes, under some conditions.
It took me quite some time, but everthing should work fine again - if not, please let me know.
