Hi Ankur,

note I've edited the CC list a bit :-)

Good to hear you can catch the message. You will want to be talking to
ejabberd directly - but I don't have the foggiest idea how you can do
that. Perhaps google a bit around for scripts to inject messages into
ejabberd's message queue?

I don't really know myself - I will need it relatively soon, so if you
find out, let us know :-) Probably the Colabora guys know. Or ask in
the ejabberd mailing list.
