nevermind that...it looks as if you have to pay for it. but I can't verify that.

I do not have a preferance as far as monitary, however we have several hundred users and i would rathere not have to pay per person if you know what i mean.I do not think My budget could take that kind of hit this quarter.

yes, you can do this, but it doesn' t retain a conversation history. it's a one for one shot.

maybe you don't.. but I, and I'm sure many others do, like to have a live history of the conversation. i.e. be able to scroll up to re-read things..

The only problem with the windows messaging that was mentioned above is we have to route it thru an adtran(ie from a 192.168.1.? to a 192.168.101.? and so on) also we have a variety of operating systems from here in eugene to cottage grove to junction city. Win95,98,linux,xp home, and xp pro.We also have a few that are completly mobile and use two seperate networks they utilize for connection. Also the windows messaging does not communicate well thru a truly IP based network utilizing three seperate servers. 2 novell and one exchange.

I will investigate winpopup and will let you know the results, please keep the suggestions coming!!
Thanks

Jabber for sure, I believe by default it is encrypted (I think, last time I read about Jabber was a long time ago...) and their are clients for Windows, *N?X, etc. You can also perhaps use Gaim with a special plugin for 448 bit encryption


Atleast I think this is what you are asking for =)


EDIT: Just so you know, Jabber is a protocol and Gaim is software that supports many protocols and plugins...

umm, you can use the messenger service, i belive there are programs like winpopup which intercept the messages and make a log. Problem comes when youve turned off messenger service.

I have only ever used somthing called....ummm.... sorry cant remember :$

Sonork! thats it. uses http encryped, but you do need a server!
