OK, so do two people have to be on the same XMPP server in order to communicate? Or does the protocol have some kind of forwarding, like email does?

@fleegman Nope. All you need is their xmpp id and you are good to go

@fleegman You can think about it exactly as e-mail. It works between different servers the same way like on the same server.
