Instant messaging

About Jabber

Jabber (also known as XMPP) is an instant messaging(IM) system that is open, unlike some other IM systems like MSN, AIM and Yahoo. This means that Jabber works more like e-mail, in that every Jabber system can talk to any other Jabber system. Jabber addresses look very similar to e-mail addresses, for example user@example.com.

Jabber at KTH

KTH has a Jabber system (kth.se) that is free to use for all students and employees at KTH. The Jabber address for all users is the same as their @kth.se e-mail address.
