Introducing MDaemon v18

MDaemon has long been a favourite for small businesses who demand the security and control only a dedicated email server can offer.

Like all MDaemon releases, the developers at MDaemon Technologies continue to add new customer requested features and enhancements. Here is a quick overview of just some of the features end users and IT administrators will find helpful. A more comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be viewed in the MDaemon Messaging Server Release Notes.

Email Server - 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 [Learn More].

Email Security - Enhanced Security to Avoid DNS Attacks

MDaemon - Email Security - DNSSEC

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

MDaemon - Remote Administration - Set Security 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.

Remote Administration & Webmail - Remember Me for Easier Access

MDaemon - Webmail - Remember Me for Easier Access

Remote Administration & Webmail 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

MDaemon - Webmail - 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. Click here to learn how to setup Email Encryption for MDaemon

Webmail - Message Snooze

MDaemon - 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 - Calendar Publishing

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.

Webmail - Text-to-Speech

MDaemon - Webmail - Text-to-Speech

When viewing a message in MDaemon Webmail using the WorldClient, LookOut, or Mobile theme, users can click on a button to listen to the message.

NOTE: This feature is currently only supported in Chrome or Firefox.

Antivirus - Mailbox Scanning

MDaemon - 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

MDaemon - 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.

Other Improvements

  • MDaemon Webmail - In the LookOut and WorldClient themes, PIM attachments can now be added to Contacts, Tasks, and Notes.
  • MDaemon Webmail - An option was added to MDaemon Webmail that allows users to decide how to handle the original message when replying to or forwarding a message. The options are: Do not include, Attach, Include, Include and Indent, Prefix. Whether using MDaemon Webmail on a computer or a mobile device, this feature allows users to more easily identity replied-to or forwarded message content.
  • MDaemon Webmail - Now supports custom images for each custom button in the WorldClient and LookOut themes. Custom buttons are configured by an administrator on the MDaemon server. Instructions and additional details can be found in the MDaemon release notes.
  • MDaemon Webmail & Remote Administration - A Terms of Use acknowledgment has been added to the logon page. When Terms of Use is required, users will not be able to login without checking a box.
  • Remote Administration - Learn Spam and Learn Non-Spam buttons have been added to all Queues. These buttons can be used to feed spam and non-spam messages to the Bayesian Learning system to help train the spam filter to be more accurate.
