I started looking into #XMPP clients with end-to-end-encryption support. First one was #Gajim, with its "charming" 90s messenger style. Encryption isn't the default here however, no progress on the corresponding issue. https://dev.gajim.org/gajim/gajim-plugins/-/issues/319
@WPalant what do you mean with "XMPP identifier"? Do you mean the Jabber ID what looks like an email address?
@jr Yes, that for example. When registering I had to enter a user name and select a server, yet it expected me to compose a Jabber ID myself when logging in. And it genuinely confused me when I tried to join a channel, I didn't realize that channel IDs were composed in the same way.
@WPalant maybe open an issue for this? I totally understand how this could be confusing for first time XMPP users
