    One should be able to specify the number/size of offline messages a user may store until new/old ones are dropped. I suggest the option is per host (unless specified in the global section). As a bonus it could accept a list of JIDs to increase/decrease the amount for specific users. The value "0" for a given JID could grant him unlimited offline msgs.

    I plan to solve this by introducing a new plugin, mod_limits. - Limit number/size of offline messages - Limit roster size - Limit/restrict PEP node creation - Private XML The list is endless. Which raises the question of whether it should actually be just one plugin. I don't like having the same logic spread around throughout the other modules, but I also don't like monolithic modules either.

    Issue 133 has been merged into this issue.

    There is a first draft of this module here: http://prosody.im/files/mod_limits.lua And also a simpler one specifically for MUC: http://code.google.com/p/prosody-modules/wiki/mod_muc_limits They're both only really tested with 0.9 and trunk, but feedback from anyone experimenting with them on any (recent!) version would be just as welcome.

    mod_limits has been in prosody-modules, it seems to work well. I am planning to merge it for 0.10, so I am setting the milestone on this ticket.
