Using xmpp for chat and can only send -- does not receive -- and no group chats show up in list

Just started using the client and logged in my xmpp account with it as well. Love the interface for the chat, but I can only seem to send. No messages get received, even when someone is messaging me with the window open.

I also see no group chats listed, that I know I’m a part of.

XMPP does not support group chats

xmpp can do group chats, as I understand. I’m in one with my colleagues and was hoping to have it in the email client. Hmm…

Maybe it does in theory, but I don’t think eM Client’s implementation does.  Personally, I use other third-party chat clients as I find them much better.
