I searched long and hard and read up on various PM systems, and picked this one. I haven't been sorry. It is top notch, and is actively supported. It serves my needs perfectly.

After looking for a good PMS-extension for J!, I found this one. Clean, loads of features, easy to use. But, there's just one thing I'm missing: the possibility to limit the max. PMs in each folder, based on the user's group. So, for example, I can't say Registered members can get 100 messages in their Inbox, where Authors get up to 150, Editors and Publishers up to 250 and Backend Members up to 1000, or even have no limit at all.

Perhaps an idea for the next release? It gets even better when it gets (built-in or not) JACL-support...

But, besides this feature, it's a great extension, which I won't drop!

Good configuration and lots of integration/customizability, but I think that it would be cool to have some uddeIM and Seyret Video Component integration action!! Overall though, great component and am looking forward to new releases.

I tried uddeIM when in it's infancy (version 0.5 I believe), and I wasn't much impressed... months later I lost interest after seeing no trace of development activity ...

I stumbled some days ago on a remark about the current version beeing 1.1 and decided to give it a new chance. Gee I am amazed, this is a very good PMS, in fact I rushed through the french translation within hours to give it to my users !

With every release of Uddeim I am more and more impressed. The latest addition of user created contact groups blew me away. That is something I have been wanting for a long time. Thanks Slabbi!

I'm using this extension on a few sites and everyone loves the functionality. It was easy to install and set up. The only drawback I have found is that the text field for entering messages (compose or reply) is one line long. The text scrolls up as you type, but you can see only the line of text you're typing in.

Please check your site template. uddeIM takes most of the settings from the main template. Usually the message field consists of 10 rows but your site template seems to change this.

This is a superb and easy to use PM module. After trying all the others on offer this is definitely the best. Thanks for all the hard work and keep it up!

I must say this module/component is by far the best I've seen out there.

Easy to install, configure and maintain. Lots of configuration options. Lots of features for users. Very nice design, configurable as well.

Especially nice to have an all in one solution, i.e. mail notifier, mailbox display, and the system itself.

Well done!

Considering that it also links to profile / CB, I am quite pleased to have this PMS running on my site!

I would highly reccomend this to anyone.
