Both OpenFire <http://www.igniterealtime.org/> and iChat in Leopard 
Server <http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/features/ichat.html> support 
Jabber auto approvals.  In my opinion, OpenFire is a far better Jabber 
server since, like Pidgin, it's open source and runs on multiple platforms.

Both Jabber servers can hook up to LDAP and Active Directory so that 
your buddy lists are pre-populated based on the your LDAP/AD group.  I 
just implemented OpenFire for a customer with mixture of Macs and PCs 
using iChat and Pidgin and OpenFire has performed marvelously so far.  I 
must say, those running Pidgin are envious of those with Macs that have 
iChat with video/voip capability.  ;)
