Privacy in instant messaging

The Pidgin IM-client has an "Off-the-Record" plugin, which allows encryption of messages.

At first sight and use it seems quite useful, but after a while I hit a flaw that makes it useless:

Losing messages without any indication!

That simply is unacceptable, and makes for really, really incomprehensible discussions. So out the OTR plugin went again.

I'll have to rely on SSL between client and my server, and from my server to the people I talk to's servers, for now.
