MDaemon 17 Adds New Security and Collaboration Features

Dropbox Integration for Webmail Users, Popular IM Client Connections, Support for Let’s Encrypt, new Message Scheduling, and More!

Businesses around the world have depended on the reliability and security of MDaemon for over 20 years.

With the release of MDaemon 17, we’ve included additional security features and introduced several new features for WorldClient, MDaemon’s feature-packed web-based email client.

Below, you’ll find a summary of key new features. A more comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be found in the MDaemon release notes on the MDaemon Download page.

New Security Features

MDaemon Health Check Utility

MDaemon’s new health check utility will analyze all security-related settings and display a report of each feature that is not configured with the recommended setting. This report includes the name of the feature, the current setting for that feature, its recommended setting, and the GUI path to the setting. Administrators can select an entry in the report and click on “Set to Recommended” to re-configure the selected feature with the recommended setting, or by holding down CTRL or SHIFT, multiple items can be selected and re-configured simultaneously.

Enhanced Password Security

An option has been added to store mailbox passwords using non-reversible encryption. This protects the passwords from being decrypted by MDaemon, the administrator, or a possible attacker.

Access to Free Certificates

MDaemon now supports “Let’s Encrypt,” a certificate authority service that uses an automated process to provide free certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption for secure websites.

New Webmail Features

Dropbox Integration

WorldClient users can save message attachments directly to their Dropbox accounts and attach files directly from Dropbox when composing a message.

Flexible Chat Client Options

WorldClient Instant Messenger now uses the XMPP protocol for instant messaging instead of WorldClient’s proprietary protocol. This gives users more chat client options (those that support XMPP), especially when wanting to use mobile chat clients to connect with MDaemon users on their desktop.

Message Scheduling

WorldClient users now have the option of sending a message at a later date and time. This feature is located under the Advanced button in the message compose window. Simply select the desired date and time in the new drop-down menus, and then click on Send. For more information on how to enable this feature, please see the MDaemon release notes.

Support for Multiple Email Signatures

WorldClient now supports multiple email signatures. This is useful in situations where a user has additional aliases for his account, such as sales@example.com, etc. A default signature can be assigned to the user’s primary email address and to each alias. When composing a message, users can use the default signature assigned to the email address (or alias) currently used, or choose from among their other signatures via the Advanced button in the message Compose window.

Easily Share Contacts with Other Email Clients

When using the LookOut or WorldClient themes, WorldClient users can now import vCards (.vcf files) into their default contacts folder. vCards enable users to send and receive contact information in a format that can be easily read in other email programs. A vCard may contain a contact’s name, title, phone number, email address, mailing address, and other information.

Other Improvements

  • ActiveSync Corrupt Message Notifications notify administrators if a particular message cannot be processed.
  • The ActiveSync Migration Client now supports the ability to select which folder types to migrate.
  • A new content filter option has been added which will quarantine the entire message when it contains a restricted attachment.
  • The Retry Queue configuration screen has a new checkbox which enables sending of a “successful delivery” DSN (delivery status notification message) any time a message is delivered which has previously been delayed and placed in the retry queue for whatever reason.
  • Options have been added to the Outlook Connector centralised management for local cache filename and attachments directory.

MailStore 10 – With Full Encryption, Automatic Updates, and More!

MailStore UpdateOur friends at MailStore have been hard at work to make their email archiving solution more secure while providing more flexible administrative features.  With the release of MailStore version 10, users and administrators benefit from the following improvements.

Keeping Archive Data Safe & Secure

Full Encryption of Database & Audit Logs

MailStore has always stored archived email in encrypted format, but now, they take encryption a step further by encrypting the internal databases and audit logs. Now, in addition to the messages themselves being encrypted, metadata such as message subjects, senders, and recipients are also encrypted, as well as the archive folder structure.

Restricted archive access for administrators

By default, MailStore administrators will no longer be able to browse, search, or export email of other MailStore users as long as the compliance setting “Archive Access” (formerly known as E-mail preview) is set to “Block Access.”

Extra Cloud Backup Protection

MailStore now allows you to use a specific recovery key to prevent archive data from being accessed from other systems by unauthorized users. This is useful in situations where cloud storage backup locations are used.

Making Life Easier for Administrators

Automatic Updates with Email Notifications

MailStore now includes an automatic-update feature that notifies the administrator when a new version is available. This helps to ensure that you can always benefit from the latest feature set.

Flexible Storage Location Options

Administrators now have more options when configuring archive stores. Each component of an archive (email content, search indexes, databases) can now have its own storage location.

Many Other Improvements

These are just the highlights of MailStore’s new features. To benefit from all of its new features and enhancements, download MailStore 10 today!

A Fresh New Look & New Features for SecurityGateway 4.0!

SecurityGateway_logo_transparentA company’s greatest asset is its customers, and here at Alt-N, we strive to listen to our customers’ needs. A direct result of that effort was the creation of the Alt-N Idea Engine, which allows customers to submit feature requests and other ideas to improve our products. Many of these ideas have made their way into our products, and many more are being considered for future versions.

Recently, we introduced some exciting new features to MDaemon, including a flexible Remote Administration interface and enhanced security via DMARC (Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance). I’m pleased to announce that these and other great new features have now been added to SecurityGateway!

A brief overview of key new features is outlined below. For a complete overview of all new features and enhancements, click here to view the SecurityGateway Release Notes.

Flexible, Mobile-Optimized Web Interface

With the proliferation of handheld devices and an increasingly mobile workforce, users will benefit from an updated, responsive web interface that is optimized for mobile devices. The format of the information displayed is dependent on the size of the browser window, so whether you’re on a desktop PC, a tablet, or a mobile phone, the interface adjusts for a more user-friendly experience regardless of what type of device is used.

Enhanced Anti-Spoofing Support with DMARC

DMARC (Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance), enables domain owners to direct the actions to take when handling messages purporting to be from their domain(s) but were not actually sent by them.

Bind Domain to Its Own IP address

For servers that have multiple IP addresses and multiple domains, each domain in SecurityGateway can now be bound to its own IP address. This allows messages from a specific domain to be sent only from its assigned IP address.
