PMS Component for Joomla

UddeIM allows users of a community to send private messages to each other. UddeIM is an easy-to-use PMS for Joomla! and offers all the features needed in a private messaging system.

UddeIM is available in 30 languages. It integrates with Community Builder (CB)[1], Community Builder Enhanced (CBE), Joomlaboard, Fireboard[2], Kunena, Agora and JomSocial. It is a base component to build Community Sites which allows members to exchange private messages.

UddeIM is one of the most popular and top rated components on Joomla.org.[3]


UddeIM has been designed beginning in 2005 by Benjamin Zweifel. After releasing uddeIM 0.5b in 2006 he stopped uddeIM support. UddeIM 0.5b offered only some basic communication features. It was running on Mambo 4.5 and Joomla 1.0 and was used by lots of systems.[4]

Stephan Slabihoud picked up uddeIM support in September 2006 and released uddeIM 0.5 (without "beta"). Henceforward lots of features have been added, and uddeIM became the colossus under the PMS for Joomla. One milestone was that uddeIM 1.3 became a native Joomla 1.5 component.[5]

The current version runs on Mambo, Joomla 1.0, Joomla 1.5 legacy and Joomla 1.5 native.
