10.4 Reconnecting

jabber.el supports automatic reconnection to Jabber server(s) upon lost connection. By default it is off. To turn on, customize the jabber-auto-reconnect variable.

This is of limited use if you have to type your password every time jabber.el reconnects. There are two ways to save your password: you can set it in jabber-account-alist (see Account settings), and you can use password-cache.el, which is available in recent versions of Gnus and in Emacs 23. Note that you probably want to customize password-cache-expiry if you use the latter.
