Is it possible to disable file exchange in Instant Messaging (IM) 9?

For example, I want to stop users from being able to transfer files using an XMPP/Jabber client when communicating with our Instant Messaging 9 server.

The Managing Instant Messaging 9 and Presence Policies document in the Instant Messaging 9 Administration Guide talks about using Access Manager policies (AM policy attribute: sunIMAllowFileTransfer), to disable file transfers, but, AM is not installed in our deployment.

Is there an IM configuration option to disable file transfers?
