[ejabberd] Why subscription requests can not be resent until the target user go online?

Hi, all

I am trying to take use of ejabberd to build a XMPP service for our Open
Source software community.

Now I have a big problem that when I subscribed the offline guys, he or she
would not get authentication notice to approve my subscription. But when the
target user is online, he or she will immediately get the notice of
authentication. The jabber client is Pidgin 2.5.2.

I think there is something wrong in configuration of ejabberd. Can anyone
give me some advice?

I am running ejabberd 2.0.4 on ubuntu 8.10. I have written my own extauth
script for our user management, and store all the rosters and vcard
information in postgresql-8.3.6. And it is running very good except above

The contents of ejabberd.cfg are listed as follows:

{loglevel, 5}.

{hosts, ["mydomain.org"]}.


  {5222, ejabberd_c2s, [
            {certfile, "/usr/local/ejabberd-2.0.4/conf/server.pem"},
            {access, c2s},
            {shaper, c2s_shaper},
            {max_stanza_size, 65536}
