Introduction

Zimbra 5.0 or higher supports the XMPP (Jabber) protocol for instant messaging. It stands for eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) (formerly known as Jabber) which is an open sourced, XML-inspired protocol for near real time, extensible instant messaging (IM) and presence information (a.k.a. buddy lists).

XMPP compatible clients, such as Spark, can be used to connect to the Zimbra server. Users can then add buddies from their Zimbra Server into Spark without having a need to connect to a Third Party service such as AIM or MSN. This allows users to keep their home or personal instant messaging account separate from their work or professional account. Additionally, users can use the company/corporate/family Zimbra Server without signing up for another IM account from a Third Party Vendor. If you have an account on the Zimbra Server, you already have a XMPP/Chat account.

Spark was created by IgniteRealtime/Jive which also produces the Wildfire/Openfire portal software, from which Zimbra's server side IM branches from.

Configuring Spark

After installation

Username: - Zimbra user name without domain like user1
password: - Users' password 
Server:   - Use only domain (please don't use Server name or IP)
            only domain like example.com of user1@example.com 
Go to Advanced tab
 uncheck the :- Automatically discover host & port.Then, 
 Host: - your mail Server like mail.example.com
 port: - 5222
