Yahoo Groups not respected


I have recently upgraded to OpenFire 2.7.0 and the gateway 1.1.3 beta plugin.

I have my Yahoo! contacts separated into several groups which coincide with groups in my other accounts. This has always worked well.

Now when I log in all of my Yahoo! contacts are in a single group called "General." I have enabled the Facebook transport for the first time in this version and uncategorized contacts from Facebook are also shown in this group. I have tried to re-organice the Y! contacts but they return to General on the next login. Logging in with the Yahoo! Messenger client shows them in their proper groups.


OpenFire 2.7.0
CentOS 5.5

The Yahoo client shows everyone in the groups they were in before 1.1.13. I had been using 1.1.12 before.

Actually also – which version of Kraken were you using before you upgraded and things stopped working? Might help me figure out what was going on when. =)

After you move them in Kraken, do they show up as moved in the real Yahoo client? Or does that not even work? (ignoring that they force them into the "general" group for now)
