Introducing MDaemon 18: Single Installer for All Licensed Features, AntiVirus Mailbox Scanning, and Much More!

I’ve got some exciting news. Our latest & greatest MDaemon release is now available for download! With MDaemon 18, we introduce new features that benefit administrators and end-users alike. Let’s go over the top new features. You can view a more comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements in the MDaemon release notes.

New Features for Administrators

Single Installer for All Licensed Features

The MDaemon download/install file now includes all former plug-ins which are now “licensed features” of MDaemon that require a separate license key.

When you enable each feature for the first time, a 30-day trial is activated. You can purchase a full license for these features on our website or through your local MDaemon reseller. Purchase options can also be found under the Help menu in MDaemon.

Enhanced Security to Avoid DNS Attacks

DNSSEC is a technology that digitally signs DNS data so that you can be assured that it’s valid. It was created to combat man-in-the-middle attacks that are possible in the DNS system. These types of attacks can lead to users being directed to a hijacker’s own deceptive website in an attempt to collect personal data. To help ensure MDaemon does not become a victim of these attacks, it is now capable of requesting DNSSEC be used when available.

Remote Administration – Set Security Features to their Recommended Settings

If you have adjusted MDaemon’s security settings over time and are unsure of the best settings for optimal security, you can now set each security feature to its recommended setting with a single mouse click in MDaemon Remote Administration.

Antivirus – Mailbox Scanning

When MDaemon Antivirus is enabled, administrators can now configure a schedule to scan all mailboxes. This allows the detection of any infected messages that may have passed through before any new virus definitions were created to detect the latest threats.

ActiveSync – Exempt Known Devices from Location Screening

An option has been added to allow a previously known device to bypass location screening when connecting via MDaemon ActiveSync. Administrators can enable this option to allow users to continue to access their account from locations that are configured to have their authentication attempts blocked. This is useful if you have users who are traveling and need access to their email.

New Features for End Users

Remote Administration  & Webmail – Remember Me for Easier Access

MDaemon Webmail and Remote Administration users can enable the Remember Me feature to automatically login without having to enter a username and password. The Remember Me duration can be configured by the administrator for up to 365 days.

Webmail – Simplified Email Encryption

When composing a message, MDaemon Webmail users can use the Advanced Options screen to instruct MDaemon to encrypt the message, retrieve their public key, or retrieve the public key of another user (if available). This greatly simplifies the process of sending secure, encrypted email using MDaemon PGP.

Webmail  – Message Snooze

MDaemon Webmail users can snooze emails to temporarily remove them from their inbox until they need them. The user’s email will reappear in the inbox at the configured time, whether it’s tomorrow, next week, or when you get home.  Snoozed messages can be displayed at any time using the View Snoozed Messages options.

Webmail  – Collaboration & Security for Public Calendars

MDaemon Webmail users can publish a calendar to a publicly accessible URL for easy sharing and collaboration. For added security, these public calendars can be password protected. To publish a calendar, click the Share Folder icon for your calendar under the Options|Folders menu in MDaemon Webmail, enter an optional display name and password under the Public Access tab, and then click on Publish Calendar. Anyone who has the calendar’s URL and optional password can view it in their browser. More information on how to enable this feature globally or on a per-user basis can be found in the MDaemon release notes.
