Without any doubt the best PMS component out there. Easy to use, integrates with other components like FireBoard and Community Builder and more.
Feature rich interface, flawless in every way.
It even comes with 5+ free templates, and even they are free they are quite nice.

I have tried MISSUS for nearly a year, after testing and dropping most others.
I installed this UDDE recently due to continuous (small) bugs and trouble with MISSUS (including it being stopped).
UDDE is stable and solid!

It would be more nice, if one can search among messages. Joomla search will not search inside messages.
Owner's reply

Since uddeIM stores messages obfuscated or encrypted in the database to ensure the confidentiality it is not possible to provide a Joomla integrated search. A uddeIM integrated search might be possible but this would mean a sequential decoding of each message which will exceed php time restrictions on most systems. So you have to live with the filter capabilities which are already available.

I was looking for a good pm system that had integration with Agora, but I couldn't find any. Then I stumbled upon UddeIM. This PM system works seamlessly with my Agora. Thank you for UddeIM!!

I tried 4 the best popular PMS placed here. But I have to say that uddeIM is the best (in my opinion of course). It does everything what I need and is simple to set it. I have translated it to czech and have sent translation to developer´s page.

A little more "eyecandy" would make this the best PM solution for Joomla.

The icons / smileys looks like 1995 ;)
Owner's reply

Please report this to the Tango Project and Famfamfam Icons Project.

Both provide free icon sets (GNU license).

The icon sets are quite nice in my opinion and if you do not like them create your own or replace them with another set of your choice.

Just integrated this into my Joomie and I really love it. Not only does it empower the site with user-messaging capabilities, but it's got a comprehensive admin back-end which let's you control the smallest of options (some that would probably never come to your mind).

Huge thumbs up!

I signed up here just to give this review

You did an excellent job on uddeIM, it even recognizes Agora avatars! (first plugin I've found that immediately picks that up without any tinkering). And there are a lot of options within this, from display options to actual usability (the contact list is a GREAT idea, and I love how it autocompletes user names)

Once again, excellent job!

I´m using this component for the second time now. First time was on a company website right out-of-the-box with no problem whatsoever, now on a community website with some css-tweaking. Again no problem and very well-structured css makes changes a piece of cake.
Great extension!

Hi, everybody!

This component is very useful for PM.
At first, I have got one problem. But with FAQ, I solved that.

Now uddeim works fine. No problem.

Thanks, developer.

easy to understand documentation, works with fireboard, pop-up notification, wow. this is by and far the easiest piece of joomla that i have installed since i started with joomla.

the only down side to this is if you want to use the Java popup window to notify users of a new message. every time you navigate to another page the pop up window shows up again. if there are more than 2 links to get to your inbox (PMS are accessed only through fireboard on my site) its a little bit of a pain. but all you have to do is use the xml floating notification that contains a link to the inbox right in the notification.

All in all this is an awesome piece of code~!!

WOW! Really amazing ! This component is really good. It works really fine and it's perfectly what i wanted for my community (plug in for CB are just wonderful !).

It works really fine with Joomla 1.5 and CB 1.2.

I would say again : REALLY REALLY NICE !
