It takes some time until the changes necessary to make XMPP work well
with mobiles are implemented everywhere.  But I think the situation is
slowly getting better.

Carbon copy support is enabled if 'mod_carboncopy' is listed in the
'modules' section of your ejabberd.yml file.  It is _used_ only if a
client then actually requests carbon copies.

However, even without mod_carboncopy, ejabberd copies messages that were
sent to the recipient's bare JIDs to multiple clients if these clients
have the same (max.) priority.

Personally, I use "resend_on_timeout: if_offline", and otherwise the
default settings.

I'm not sure what you mean, here.
