Free Instant Messaging Server
Openfire is by far the easiest Jabber implementation I've ever had the pleasure of installing, setting up and administering.
However, in utilizing open source licensing, and a great plugin API, Openfire is a lot more than just a Jabber server.
Another great use for Openfire is the ability to control corporate IM connectivity by setting it up as a gateway server between services like AIM & MSN and your users.
