We believe Oracle use XMPP.

Even though this is not the usual "can't login in to pidgin" question from Oracle employees, you should probably take note of this standard response, as it is some part of Oracle that sets the policy that is resulting in the groups being overridden by the server.

The Oracle eyes only web page mentioned may give appropriate contact information for obtaining more general support on Oracle's IM server.

We do not know anything about Oracle services, this is a peer support list for a third-party software package (Pidgin) used by Oracle.

Try this Oracle knowledge base article:
