Send-IM Cmdlet

Parameters   Output Objects   Configuration Settings  

The Send-IM cmdlet is used to send messages using the XMPP (Jabber) protocol.

Syntax

Send-IM [parameters]

Remarks

This cmdlet implements a standard Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) client, as specified in RFC 3920 and RFC 3921. In addition, it also includes the added option of SSL security.

To send an instant message with this cmdlet, set Server to the IM server you wish to use, Credential to your login information, Message to the text of the message you wish to send, and Recipient to the user name of the person you're sending the message to (in the format user@domain).

The cmdlets support pipeline input for some of their parameters. Prebuilding an object and piping it to the cmdlet is very useful, but should be used with caution to prevent security conflicts. Steps have been taken to decrease the risk of a possibly accidental pipe to the cmdlet, for instance, the Credential parameter cannot be piped to the cmdlet and must be specified manually.


# send an IM
send-im -server myserver -credential $cred -recipient mybuddy@myserver -message "Hi!"

Connection Handling

This cmdlet supports persistent connections through the Connection parameter. To establish a new IM connection, use the Connect-IM cmdlet. To close the connection, use the Disconnect-IM cmdlet.
