Announcing MDaemon 19.5 – With Redesigned Mobile Webmail & More!

The news is out. There’s a new version of MDaemon Email Server, with new features and improvements to benefit both administrators and end-users alike!

New Features for Administrators

Centralized Management of Email Client Signatures

Most businesses follow certain custom branding practices in their email communications, but inevitably there will be those end users who have not updated their email signature to adhere to these branding practices, introducing inconsistencies in the company’s branding image. To help businesses maintain consistent branding and appearance of company email, MDaemon administrators can now configure default and per-domain email client signatures that are personalized for each user and pushed to supported email clients (MDaemon Webmail and MDaemon Connector for Outlook).

Both plain-text and HTML signatures are supported, and macros can be used (here’s a handy macro reference guide) to automatically populate various fields from the user’s account. You can even add images and links!

When using MDaemon Remote Administration, adding signatures is made even easier using the available editing and formatting tools. You can even add your company logo by simply dragging the image into the window.

Macro Detection in Email Attachments

Cybercriminals often attach Microsoft Office files containing malicious macros to their spam & phishing email messages. They then use social engineering to try to trick the user into opening the attachment (which may be disguised as an invoice, payment receipt or legal document) and enabling macros. From there, the macro goes right to work, unleashing malware that can take down your network, or ransomware that can take days to remove, costing your businesses thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

To help prevent these attachments from reaching users, MDaemon Antivirus has a new setting to detect macros in documents scanned by Cyren AV and flag them as infected for further review by the administrator.

New Mobile Theme for Webmail

These days, most people use their smartphones for just about everything, from banking or surfing the Web, to conducting business via email, so whether you’re using the largest Microsoft Surface tablet, or the smallest iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, you need access to your most important email and collaboration features at all times.

To help users on the go stay organized, the Mobile Theme for MDaemon Webmail has been redesigned with a more modern look, and includes a variety of new features previously only found in desktop themes. New email management features include email templates, personalized categories, drag & drop email filters, email signature editor with support for multiple signatures, deferred delivery, message snooze, message recall, and sorting options.

Calendar features for the new Mobile Webmail theme include importing and exporting in CSV or ICS (iCal) format, support for external calendars, private access links, simultaneous multi-calendar view, and much more.

But that’s not all…

These are just the major highlights. You can read the full list of improvements in the MDaemon Release Notes.

Introducing MDaemon 19 – with Updates for Security, Reporting, & Webmail

This week, we released version 19 of the MDaemon Email Server, with new features that benefit administrators and end users. The following is a summary of key improvements for email security and productivity. You can view the complete list of new features and updates in the MDaemon release notes.

New MDaemon Email Server Features for Administrators

One of the first things administrators will notice is that the behavior of the “Start MDaemon” Start menu shortcut has changed. When clicked, you’ll now be taken to MDaemon Remote Administration via your browser. If you’d like to launch the MDaemon Email Server console directly, you can use the “Open MDaemon Configuration Session” shortcut, as shown here:MDaemon Email Server Start Menu

Enhanced Integration with Third-Party Plugins

MDaemon’s XML-API has been expanded to include additional capabilities. Folders and their contents can be created, deleted, renamed, and moved using the API. Developers can use these expanded features to display or manipulate the content of user mailboxes.

“External Message” Warning

A new “External Sender” Content Filter condition has been added, along with a new “Add a warning to the top of the message” action. This allows MDaemon administrators to create a rule that will add a custom warning to the top of all email messages originating from external sources – providing extra protection against phishing attempts by alerting users to treat these messages with extra care.

Extnernal Sender Warning

Support for Separate SSL Certificates for Each Host/Domain

MDaemon supports TLS Server Name Indication (SNI). This allows domains and host names to have their own assigned SSL/TLS certificate, rather than having to share a single certificate.

MDaemon - Support for multiple SSL certificates

New Authentication Failure & Frozen Account Reports

MDaemon’s Dynamic Screening feature includes the option to send authentication failure and frozen account reports to end users. When a given number of authentication failures has been reached, or when an account has been frozen, the user is notified so that corrective action can be taken.

New MDaemon Email Server Features for End Users

MDaemon Webmail – “All Unread” and “All Flagged” Saved Searches

When logging in for the first time, MDaemon Webmail users will receive a prompt asking if they would like to create an “All Unread” and “All Flagged” saved search for convenient, one-click access to unread or important email messages.

MDaemon Webmail Saved Search - All Unread All Flagged

MDaemon Webmail – Expired Session Indicator

MDaemon Webmail will display (EXPIRED) on the browser tab when a user’s session has expired. This allows users who have multiple browser tabs open to be notified when they have been logged out of MDaemon Webmail without having to switch tabs.

Other MDaemon Email Server Improvements Include:

  • Autodiscover support has been expanded to accommodate a wider variety of connecting email clients (including eM Client, Thunderbird, Outlook, and others). The service can also now be configured to pass a custom host name to the connecting client on a per-service basis (for example: administrators can configure ActiveSync to connect to activesync.domain.com and IMAP to connect to imap.domain.com, etc.).
  • The option “Only send antivirus update notification on failure” is now enabled by default, and when updating to MDaemon 19, it will be enabled the first time MDaemon starts up.
  • MDaemon Remote Administration New Features:
    • Added license management options to the Registration page.
    • Added AntiVirus Updater and Scheduler dialog
    • Added queue counts, process message counts, other process counts, session statistics, and more process states to the Status page.
  • The MDaemon AntiVirus configuration screen has been updated. Both antivirus engines (Cyren and ClamAV) can now be configured from a single screen.
  • When ActiveSync is disabled for a domain, administrators will receive a pop-up asking if they would like to revoke ActiveSync access for users of the selected domain. This makes it easier to revoke access and reduces the usage of ActiveSync licenses.
  • The STARTTLS White List now takes precedence over the STARTTLS Required List and the “SMTP server requires STARTTLS on MSA port” option.
  • New options have been added to Security | Spam Filter | Spam Honeypots and Security | Security Settings | Screening | SMTP Screen to enable/disable the Dynamic Screening notification when an IP is blocked.

These are the main highlights. For a complete list of new features & enhancements in the latest MDaemon Email Server, please see the MDaemon release notes.

The Evolution of MDaemon – 1996-2019 & Beyond!

In the early to mid nineties, our founder and CEO Arvel Hathcock recognized the need for a less expensive, easier to manage alternative to Microsoft Exchange Server for small-to-medium businesses. With solid programming skills and an entrepreneurial spirit, he created the MDaemon Email Server and launched Alt-N Technologies.

Through word of mouth among IT professionals and with the help of great channel partners, the popularity of MDaemon spread to customers across the globe. Over the years and in various geographies, the product name became more recognized than Alt-N Technologies. To better leverage the name recognition that had been built over the many years of MDaemon email server popularity, the company was renamed to MDaemon Technologies in January of 2018.

Helping the World Communicate

From the introduction of Webmail in 1997 and instant messaging in 2001, to support for third-party XMPP chat clients in 2016, MDaemon has helped improved communication for businesses in over 90 countries.

Focused on Security

Alongside these communication features came enhancements in security. IP Shielding, which is used to help prevent spoofing by blocking messages from unauthorized IP addresses, was introduced in 1996 before MDaemon even had version numbers (for some great historical information, check out the Ancient-History.txt file located inside the MDaemon/Docs directory). Relay control was added the following year, with many new security features added with each new release. In 2005, MDaemon became the first Windows-based email server to offer DKIM (Domainkeys Identified Mail) as a new tool in the fight against spoofing. And to address the growing need to protect confidential data and  meet growing regulations in health care, finance, and other industries, email encryption with OpenPGP was added in 2015.

Sharing & Collaboration

MDaemon’s collaboration tools have evolved over the years  as well. Instant messaging was added in 2001, followed by shared calendars and groupware in 2002 and 2003. Scheduling meetings with multiple attendees was made easier by the addition of free/busy in 2006.

As business communication needs evolve, so does MDaemon, with new features on the way for 2019.  If you’d like to be among the first to benefit, follow us on twitter for the latest news & product updates.

Here’s to an exciting and productive 2019!

10 Ways to Reduce Spam in Your Inbox

SpamBefore the invention of email, mail that arrived in your physical mailbox often contained pamphlets, sales brochures, credit card offers, and product catalogs. Much of this waste was thrown away and ended up in a landfill somewhere. Today, the equivalent and often more annoying nuisance is spam. Spam comes in many forms, and has evolved from dubious product claims, miracle supplements, conspiracy theories, and offers of easy money to more malicious threats such as ransomware attacks and targeted spear-phishing.

While the amount of spam as a percentage of total email traffic has gone down recently, the severity of email-borne  threats has increased.

So how can users protect themselves from becoming the next victim to these malicious threats? There are numerous spam fighting tools in MDaemon and other mail servers, but server-side tools are only half of the spam-fighting equation. The other half is user education. With this in mind, here are 10 things users can do to reduce the amount of spam they receive.

  1. Unsubscribe – How often have you been asked by a store clerk for your email address or placed an order online? In either of these situations, chances are you may have ended up on a company’s mailing list. When you receive email from these companies, take the time to open the message and click on the Unsubscribe link. But first, make sure the email is in fact coming from a reputable company (Here’s how). If you’re not completely sure where the email came from, then report the message as spam instead of unsubscribing.
  2. Create a secondary email account – While we’re on the topic of retailers having your email address, you might also consider having a second email address that’s used solely for the purpose of store records or placing orders. This allows you to keep solicitations from these vendors out of your primary inbox.
  3. Keep your email address private – If your email address is visible on social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, then it’s also visible to spammers. Spammers have tools that can easily detect visible email addresses and add them to their mailing lists. This is why it’s often recommended that, if you MUST use your email address on one of these sites, you mask it by changing its format. For example, type out “at” instead of using the “@” symbol. With the prevalence of Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks, it’s even more important for executives to be mindful of posting their email address or other personal information, as scammers will use this information to send out well-crafted spear-phishing emails.
  4. Before you join a mailing list, make sure the list owner cannot sell your email address – If the list you’re joining has a privacy policy, read it thoroughly and make sure your information cannot be sold to a third party.
  5. Don’t reply to ANY spam or unsolicited marketing messages – Most spam messages use forged sender (return-path) addresses, so replying to a spam message will almost never result in the spammer getting your message. Replying to legitimate marketing messages tells the sender that your email address is valid, and thus, they may continue to send you spam.
  6. Never click on links – Often, when you click on a link in a spam email, it specifically identifies you to the spammer as having received the message. Not only can clicking links in spam messages identify you to the spammer; you can also end up getting infected with malware.
  7. Block Images – Even if you don’t click any links, an image opening in your email can alert spammers to a valid address. Spammers often try to be stealthy by inserting images that are only one pixel wide. If your mail client is configured to automatically open images, spammers can be alerted that your email address is valid. We recommend configuring your email client to automatically block images to reduce spam. You can always choose to view images in specific emails if you are sure the sender and content are legitimate.
  8. Make your email address unique – Spammers often use common names to try to guess email addresses. If your email address is unique, it makes it harder for spammers to guess your email address.
  9. Don’t fall for scams – If you receive an anonymous email from someone who appears to be in dire need, who promises you large sums of money for your small up-front investment, you may be witnessing the familiar Nigerian email scam, or one of many other variants. What are the odds that someone you’ve never met, who’s in a desperate situation, would contact you for help? Don’t fall for this scam.
  10. Never forward email from someone you don’t know – I often see email messages with some type of public service announcement, petition, or other bit of advice, and often, there’s a request to forward the message to your friends. Don’t fall for this, as it’s a prime opportunity for spammers to harvest email addresses.

Blocking junk email is not just the job of the mail server administrator. A well-informed email user can mean the difference between spam that is manageable and spam that is out of control. These ten tips will help you reduce spam, and help prevent you from becoming a victim to phishing or malware.

Are you a little hasty with the Send button? Avoid costly mistakes with Deferred Delivery!

Let’s face it. We all make mistakes. At one time or another, most of us have gotten a little hasty with the Send button when composing an email, and sent it to the wrong Frank Thomas, accidentally CC’d the customer in an inter-office communication, or realized the email was probably not such a good idea in the first place. These examples can be quite embarrassing, but other mistakes can result in legal trouble for you or your company. For example, healthcare providers can violate HIPAA regulations by sending an email containing protected health information (PHI) to the wrong person. Penalties for these HIPAA violations can be steep, ranging from $50,000 to $1.5 million.

To avoid these situations, your email solution should have a feature that lets you delay delivery of a message. With MDaemon Webmail, message scheduling options are just a mouse click away.

“This is all great, but why would I want to delay delivery of an important email message?”

There are many reasons why one might want to defer delivery of an email message.

  • Delaying message delivery for an hour or even a few minutes gives you time to take a break from it and review it with a refreshed perspective – providing another opportunity to catch errors you might have missed before.
  • Some email conversations go back and forth too quickly, so you might respond before you have all the information or ask questions that are already answered in the next message. Deferred delivery allows you to slow the process down so you’re not having to play email tag.
  • Deferred delivery can help prevent you from sending an angry email response during heated discussions. Allowing yourself a little extra time to re-think your message or to cancel the message altogether can help prevent a great deal of workplace conflict.
  • For companies that operate globally, deferred delivery allows users to schedule messages for delivery during peak business hours in the recipient’s country, increasing the likelihood that it will be seen.

We demonstrate how to defer delivery of an email message in MDaemon Webmail in this week’s tutorial video.

Deferred Delivery is explained further here in the MDaemon Help fileHere’s a handy list of features, or you can download your free trial of MDaemon and see for yourself how easy it is to use!

Can you Have an Auto-Responder on a Frozen MDaemon Account?

I’ve heard various opinions on what to do with an MDaemon account belonging to someone who has left a company. In a recent post on our community forums, an MDaemon administrator had set a former employee’s account to Frozen, and then configured an auto-responder for the account. Frozen accounts cannot send outbound email, and the user of a frozen account cannot check for new email.

From this page of the MDaemon manual:

Account is FROZEN (can receive but cannot send or check email)

Select this option if you wish to allow the account to receive incoming messages but prevent it from being able to check or send messages. This is useful when, for example, you suspect the account has been hijacked. Freezing the account would prevent the malicious user from accessing its messages or using the account to send messages, but it would still be able to receive its incoming email.

The result of this is that auto-response messages from frozen accounts to external (non-local) addresses are sent to the Holding queue (more information on the Holding queue can be found here).

Let’s take a closer look at what happens.

Let’s say an employee has left the company. As the MDaemon administrator, I don’t want that employee’s account to be used, so I place it in Frozen status via the main Account Details screen of the account editor, as shown here.

MDaemon Account Editor Showinng Frozen Account
MDaemon Account Editor Showinng Frozen Account

Now let’s say I’ve enabled an auto-responder for the account, as shown here.

MDaemon Account Auto-Responder Enabled
MDaemon Account Auto-Responder Enabled

In the following example, I’ve created the account frozen@brad.ssllock.com, and have configured the auto-responder.

When I send a test to frozen@brad.ssllock.com from training@mdaemon.com, the MDaemon server hosting the @brad.ssllock.com domain places the message in the frozen account’s mailbox, but the user is unable to log into webmail or access the inbox via another email client.  When MDaemon then tries to send the auto-responder that we enabled for the frozen account, the message is moved to the  Holding queue and the following is written to the MDaemon logs:

Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: Session 042192; child 0001
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: Parsing message <c:\mdaemon\queues\remote\pd50000000056.msg>
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: *  From: frozen@brad.ssllock.com
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: *  To: Training@mdaemon.com
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: *  Subject: RE: Test to Frozen Account with Auto-Responder
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: *  Size (bytes): 3822
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.406: *  Message-ID: MDAEMON0005201806181118.AA1812640@mail.brad.ssllock.com
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.421: Message moved to holding queue because sending account is disabled
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.421: SMTP session terminated (Bytes in/out: 0/0)
Mon 2018-06-18 11:18:33.421: ———-

The result is that the auto-response never gets sent because the account is frozen.

The Solution

Rather than freezing the account, you could simply change the account’s password so that it can still accept mail and send auto-response messages. This can be done via the main Account Details screen, as shown here.

Account Details
Account Details

If you prefer to freeze the account instead of changing its password, another option would be to create a content filter rule that would send your desired response to the original message sender instead of using the auto-responder. That content filter rule would look something like this:

Content Filter Rule
Content Filter Rule

In this example, I created a rule that sends a reply to the sender of messages addressed to frozen.account@example.com using the “Send a NOTE 1” action. I then entered the $SENDER$ macro and the desired response. This message will be sent back to the message sender in response to a message originally sent to the frozen account.

You can get pretty creative with MDaemon’s content filter to perform a variety of tasks, so hopefully you found this helpful!
