SecurityPlus provides antivirus and anti-spam services for MDaemon. It scans all inbound and outbound mail traffic for spam, viruses, malware, phishing attempts, and other types of malicious activity to catch potential threats before they have had a chance to infiltrate your network. To learn more about SecurityPlus, including how to configure it & how to identify SecurityPlus activity in your MDaemon log files, check out the following recorded webinar.
MDaemon users can use Outlook Connector to share their groupware data – Outlook calendars, contacts, tasks and notes with other Outlook Connector or WorldClient (webmail) users. Users can grant custom folder permission levels to authorized individuals, display their Contacts folder as an Outlook address book, configure an out-of-office auto-responder, and more. In this webinar, we walk you through installation and configuration of Outlook Connector, and discuss best practices for best performance.
We’ve added our recent DMARC webinar to our YouTube channel. DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) is an anti-spoofing technology that makes it possible for domain owners to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to inform receiving servers of their DMARC policy, which is how they want those servers to handle email messages that claim to be sent from their domain but cannot be authenticated as having actually come from it. In this webinar, we’ll introduce you to DMARC, describe its purposes and goals, and explain how it works. Then, we’ll show you how to configure MDaemon to use DMARC to verify incoming messages.
This webinar focuses specifically on MDaemon’s implementation of DMARC, however, for a more technical and comprehensive overview of DMARC, and as a prerequisite for this webinar, we recommend viewing the Video Training series located at www.dmarc.org.
Other webinars, tutorials, and overview videos can be found on our YouTube channel.
MDaemon 15.0.1 has been released. With this release, several settings have been added to Remote Administration for parity with MDaemon. Also, there have been a few minor updates to WorldClient’s LookOut theme, and a few minor fixes. For a complete list of new features and updates, please see the MDaemon release notes:

If you work in real estate, you are not likely to receive email with pharmaceutical-related content, and if you work in the medical field, you’re not likely to receive email about stock tips or account-related notifications from PayPal. With SecurityGateway, you can create content filter rules to filter out messages that contain words that are not relevant to your business. You can filter based on the sender, recipient, IP address, message subject, message body, or any header found within the message. I’ll show you how in the following brief tutorial video.
SecurityGateway is a software-based email gateway/firewall that can be installed in front of any Exchange or other SMTP mail server, allowing you to block malicious content, such as spam, viruses, malware, and phishing attempts, before it reaches your mail server. You can learn more about SecurityGateway here.
Simple measures can be taken to improve SecurityGateway’s performance. We explain these topics in the latest addition to our YouTube channel. In this webinar, we discuss optimal system requirements and configuration for best results. Topics include database size and location, retention policies, hardware considerations, and more.
A common technique for troubleshooting mail delivery issues in MDaemon is to open the various log files (SMTP-In, SMTP-Out, Routing, etc.) with Notepad and do a search for a piece of identifying information about the session you’re trying to find, such as an email address or message subject. This method works well for most people, but there’s an easier way. MDaemon includes a tool called Queue & Statistics Manager, which you can access via the Queues menu in MDaemon. One use of this tool is to view the contents of mail folders and queues. Double-clicking on a message inside a folder opens it up in Notepad so that you can view its headers. Another use of this tool is to analyze the MDaemon logs. For example, if you import the MDaemon-SMTP(in).log or the MDaemon-all.log file, Queue & Statistics Manager will scan the contents of that file, and create a clickable list of each session found in the log. When you click on the session, Queue & Statics Manager will display the protocol dialog for that session only. This allows administrators to pinpoint exactly what they are looking for without having to scan an entire log file in Notepad or another text editor. There’s also a Report feature that can be used to save a copy of the MDaemon configuration report, which can then be sent to technical support for additional information when submitting a support ticket. The below tutorial video provides a demonstration of this tool.
In addition to its built-in spam filter, MDaemon includes many other security features that can be used to fight spam. In this webinar, we take you through an in-depth explanation of MDaemon’s spam-fighting features, and discuss recommended settings for best results.
We’ve added a new how-to / quick-start guide to our Literature page. This guide explains the recommended settings for protecting your mail server from sending outbound spam, and includes tips on how to avoid ending up on a blacklist, how to require SMTP authentication, bandwidth management, prevention of spoofing and abuse, and more. You can find this guide under the How-to Quick-Start Guides section of our Literature page. Click on Email Server Settings: Best Practice How-to Guide.
If you have not yet installed MDaemon, then these documents will help guide you in the deployment process:
We’ve added a new how-to guide to our Literature page. This guide explains how DMARC (Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) works. DMARC takes the guesswork out of determining what to do with messages that did not originate from the domain specified in the From field of the message. When a message fails DKIM and SPF lookups, DMARC allows domain administrators to tell receiving mail server administrators or mailbox providers what to do with the message, such as accept, quarantine, or reject the message. Forensic and aggregate reports allow domain administrators to see how, when and where their domain is being abused.
