All features are configurable.
Importing messages from most other PMS components is possible.

There is a comprehensive FAQ available that covers lots of issues with uddeIM on about 100 pages. You find the most current version of the FAQ on

Its a great component for someone who just want to install, config and go.

Now... it has not been developed in the MVC framework. So when I tried to change how it looks... no views, no templates, no nothing. When can only change icons and CSS, nothing more.

I think its about time to UddeIM goes MVC...

uddeIm is simply great, what can I say more?
This tool has a lot of options and details that are revealing a great development work.
I have installed it with Kunena 1.6.4 and all has worked from the first shot.
There is also a super-datailed doc to solve installation problem if they (eventually) occurs.
I recommend it, no doubt.

This component is so easy to use and set up, and integrates very well, very sad for the tinkering mind, but very nice for us that just wants it to work.
A bit strange system with hotfix'es with manual copying, but it's managable.
All problems reported was solved quickly, and Slabbi is very respondent, and have created the docs that's needed (just a question of finding them), one drawback though is the lack of it's own forum, it piggybacks on JoomlaPolis.

The support forum can be found on Joomlapolis and it is linked from JED.

The FAQ can be found in the README folder in uddeIM archive as mentioned in the description text above and as mentioned in the sticky in the uddeIM forum.

uddeIM 2.2 is not full Joomla 1.6 compatible (it requires a special installer which is describes in the README and I do not recommend to use uddeIM 2.2 on Joomla 1.6).

You can download uddeIM 2.3rc archive from my dev page which contains a separate package for Joomla 1.6.

This integrates perfectly with my Kunena forum, and supports Swedish without me having to make any changes. Very easy to configure, and a lot of smart add-ons included.

The only thing missing is the option of sending a PM to all members, but it still can be done. You just have to select them all manually. But it isn't really a problem in my opinion.

Keep up the good work!

You can use "System/General Messages" to send messages to certain groups, e.g. all registered members.

Almost perfect extension, almost. If I send message to eg. 100 users, than in outbox will be 100 single sent messages, not just ONE with 100 recepients - this is one flaw in the ointment and than outdated icons + terribly looking uddeim module/notifier.
Owner's reply

uddeIM tries to use the CSS styling from the main template. For that purpose it uses tags which are used in the default template delivered with Joomla. Unfortunately some templates use completely different tags so the modules might look terribly. In that case you have to modify the uddeIM module CSS file. The icons might be a little bit old fashioned but you can change all icons to another set quite easy.

Guys, I loved it. The fact of being able to add an "send a message to the author" icon in an article is just an example of the versatility of this extension. Just to suggest some improvements (and I'm making an effort!), included icons seem a little old.
Very good work!

Certainly the best private message of joomla, it was very nicely written. I spent a while investigating all its features and was very impressed, it was well thought out, and has some nice templates. Anyone considering a private message system I would recommend this one, there are quite a bit of options and modules. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

Cheers Josh Lewis.

Thanks to developers for free what you can use this wonderful extension.
Plugins Premium is worth the price paid.
Subject column I think that can be used to better.

I struggled for an entire day trying to get pms.mypmspro to work properly in CB. I finally tried uddeIM and it worked beautifully! The installation and setup was very simple. The documentation was well written and easy to understand. Integration with CB was practically effortless. The results look great on my website. It is exactly what I wanted. Thank you ever so much!

Have tried a number of Private messsaging systems around for Joomla, this is the best. No issues at all and intergates well with CB. Sadly many of the ones that claimed to integrate, didn't so as easily.

Great Job! Easy to use, yet very complex extension.

The only thing missing is possibility to send PM to the whole group at once.

Congratulations. I use 1.9 with Greek language and it works flawlessly thanks!!

I wish that there should be a selection that the users can contact ONLY the administrator and noone else!

Everything is fine but Russian symbols are not supported or something.. I mean when you send a message in russian, you get unreadable symbols:(
Owner's reply

UddeIM supports russian language (UTF-8 and ISO). The backend provides several settings for that.
