Our friends at Zen Software posted about an issue with Malwarebytes false positives causing some DKIM issues for MDaemon. What may happen is that MDaemon may start blocking all inbound email because it’s seeing false results that a DKIM message check has failed. This is not an MDaemon problem. What’s happening is that the libdkim.dll file that MDaemon uses as part of the DKIM check is being blocked by Malwarebytes. The solution is simple. Simply exclude the MDaemon directory from real-time or scheduled antivirus checks.
Recently Alt-N discovered a vulnerability in the content filter of MDaemon and MDaemon Private Cloud that could potentially expose the server to malicious attack. The Alt-N development team has built and tested a patch to correct the potential vulnerability.
Today, we released Outlook Connector 3.5. Outlook Connector provides groupware sharing & collaboration capabilities (calendars, contacts, tasks & notes) for Outlook users using MDaemon as the mail server platform. The following changes and new features have been added:
An option to use IMAP STARTTLS has been added to the Advanced page of the Outlook Connector account configuration dialog. Previously this option was only available for SMTP. The “Use Persistent Connection” option has been removed from the GUI but can still be set in the config.xml file if needed.
Outlook Connector now uploads copies of sent messages to the server in temporary IMAP connections, allowing them to complete in the background without blocking other operations in the Outlook UI.
Outlook Connector trial keys are now sent via email and must be entered into the installer to continue. The trial period is 30 days.
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:
We recently released MDaemon 15, with new features such as IPv6 support, email encryption, improved account hijack detection, 64-bit support, dynamic screening improvements, and much more. To learn more about what’s new, watch the following brief webinar.
Outlook users who wish to share their calendars, contacts, tasks & notes can use Outlook Connector to share their data. Outlook Connector opens up MDaemon’s groupware sharing & collaboration capabilities for Outlook users, and allows them to share content with other Outlook Connector users, or with WorldClient (webmail) users. There are two components to Outlook Connector – the server-side component, which is installed on the MDaemon server, and the client-side plug-in. Instructions for setting up Outlook Connector can be found in the Outlook Connector for MDaemon Installation and Optimal Performance Guide. This guide explains how to install and initially set up Outlook Connector, but does not go into detail on how to use it once it’s installed. For instructions on how to use the Outlook Connector client, we’ve created a new how-to guide: Using the Outlook Connector Client. This guide provides step-by-step instructions for sharing folders, accessing the global address book, configuring send/receive preferences, database management, and other features. This document and other how-to guides can be found on our Literature page at www.altn.com.
If you work in messaging, chances are you’ve heard the rumor that email is a dying medium that is being replaced by social media. A study by Osterman Research shows that these rumors are unfounded, and that businesses will continue to use email and instant messaging (such as MDaemon’s WorldClient Instant Messenger) into the future. According to Osterman Research, the typical information worker receives 100 emails in a given day, and sends about 30. Studies also show that workers spend, on average, 30 minutes per day using instant messaging. So is email really a dying medium? The answer is “absolutely not.” Click here to read the original post from Osterman Research.
