Subject: Max length of an XMPP message?

Is there a max length of chat messages sent via XMPP?

I ask this because sometimes I programatically send long messages and they appear to be truncated when recieved.

Shorter messages work fine, so I suspect there's a max length.  What is it?  Can it be adjusted?  Does the max length depend on another setting in the message, eg. Type?  (currently this is set to "chat").

Hello Owen,

no the XMPP core defines no maximum length for stanzas.
But the most XMPP servers have max. stanza size , max xml depth and max traffic (karma) in the server configuration. So it depends on the server configuration.

What do you mean with truncated? I don't think that the server truncates you stanza. Normally it returns an error when the limit is exceeded.
