Hi Daniel,

I'm not able to do that? We do not have any knowledge about that. Is it possible that we can get a compiled exe without the smileys / functions? Thx

Best regards,

The only way to do this within Pidgin itself is to modify the source
code and recompile.

If you're using XMPP with your own internal server, there may be
something you can do on the server side to filter out the capability.
