4 = Introduction =
6 Quite often when I am out and about, I'm not able to connect to Jabber. It is usually much more likely I can access my email though (whether via the web, or a mobile client).
8 For this reason I decided it would be extremely useful to have Jabber messages sent to me while I was offline forwarded to my email inbox.
10 = Usage =
12 Simply add "offline_email" to your modules_enabled list. When any user receives a message while they are offline, it will automatically be forwarded via mail to the *same* address as their Jabber ID. e.g.'s offline messages will be forwarded to's email inbox.
14 = Configuration =
16 || queue_offline_emails || The number of seconds to buffer messages for, before they are sent as an email. The default is to send each message as it arrives. ||
17 || smtp_server || Address of the SMTP server to send through. Default 'localhost' (recommended, see caveats below) ||
18 || smtp_username || If set, Prosody will authenticate with the SMTP server before sending (default is no authentication) ||
19 || smtp_password || The password for the above user (default is none) ||
20 || smtp_from || Address from which it will appear the emails came. Default is [smtp_username]@[smtp_server], where smtp_username is replaced with 'xmpp' if not set ||
22 = Caveats/Todos/Bugs =
24 * Currently SMTP sending blocks the whole server. This should not be noticable if your mail server is on the same machine as Prosody.
25 * There is not (yet) any way to configure forwarding to an email address other than your JID (idea... use email address in vcard?)
26 * Enable/disable this feature per user?
