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
Email Security - Enhanced Security to Avoid DNS Attacks
DNSSEC is a technology that digitally signs DNS data so that you can be assured that itâ€™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 hijackerâ€™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.
Remote Administration & 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
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 users can snooze emails to temporarily remove them from their inbox until they need them. The userâ€™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 calendarâ€™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
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
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.
