No way to close a jabber/xmpp conversation

I use my Jabber/XMPP account on multiple devices. If I receive a message from a friend (on my multiple devices), I can respond on my Jolla, and from that moment on, the rest of the conversion will only arrive on my Jolla. However, there is subsequently no way to end/close the conversation so that later arriving messages from that friend go to all devices again. In Empathy this for example is possible by closing the chat tab. In the Messages app I tried swiping right, closing the Messages app, to no avail. It seems some trigger is missing that notifies the client of my friend, the conversation has ended?

Maybe the telepathy channel just needs to be closed?

Are you hosting your own xmpp server? There is a plugin (at least for prosody) to enable carbon messages server side. in that way all your currently loged in devices will recieve messages. So you can easily switch between the clients

I don't use any instant message service on my Jolla at the moment. But I know that there is a possibility to change the status from the status screen. Does it help if you change your status to 'Offline' there?

@muppeth I have to change up servers soon and will have a look at that. However, in this case that will solve the inverse problem... currently I'm fine with the fact that if I answer to a hail on the Jolla, I get all messages on the Jolla.. but there is no way I can signal the other client it shouldn't send to my Jolla only again.

@szobi When setting to offline I will not receive any start-of-conversation messages on my Jolla anymore... however, it might prove to be a workaround for closing all conversations, i.e. go offline (end all conversations), go online again (be ready to receive new conversations).

@paulvt isnt it with any client/server that once you send message fron different client the conversatiom automatically focuses on that client?
