Jabber: Manage Blacklist/Whitelist
Last Updated 19 days ago

Jabber is the chat client on campus. These settings are specific to a user.

If you don't want to be contacted except by a certain list of people, you can set up a block list.


  1. Click on the Gear in the top right, and chose "Options"
  2. Choose the Privacy tab
  3. Here you can choose to block everyone by default. If you need finer controls, choose advanced.
  4. In advanced you can specify specific people to block or allow.

If you have few people to allow, the easiest set up is to:

  1. Choose block all (domain and external) on the privacy tab
  2. Add people to your address book. Those added to your address book manually override your privacy settings and can chat with you.

Things to know:

  • Your contact list can always contact you, regardless of your privacy settings
