      Test with the OU script:
      Admin Set up a test server using the new code.
      Admin Create a test users Student1 and Student2.
      Admin Go to the Manage message outputs screen, and check that the three standard messaging plugins are shown. Jabber should be disabled, because it is not configured.
      Admin Configure the Jabber plugin, and check that it can then be enabled.
      Admin Go to the Default message outputs page. Check that every combination is set to Permitted; that email is the default for everything, logged in and logged out, except for instant messages which default to email and popup when online.
      Student1 Log in as Student1, go to the message settings in their profile. Check that they see these defaults. Click save changes.
      Admin Back as admin, on the Default message outputs
      for Instant messages, Forbid email, and force popup.
      for forum notifications, change the default when online from email to popup.
      Student1 Back as student 1, on their message settings page. Check
      that the forced settings for instant messaging have taken effect.
      that the changes to the default settings have not affected the defaults that Student1 saved at step 6.
      Student2 Log in as student 2, and check that they do see the updated defaults on their message settings page.
      Student2 Send student1 an instant message.
      Student2 Subscribe to a forum.
      Studnet1 Log in. Check that the instant message pop-up appears.
      Student1 Go to the forum and make a post.
