MDaemon Server v19.5 Release Notes

MDaemon 19.5.1 - November 4, 2019

MDaemon 19.5.0 - October 15, 2019

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

[21908] Some settings, such as the registration keys, have been moved from \MDaemon\App\MDaemon.ini to \MDaemon\LocalData\LocalData.ini. If you need to revert to a previous version, they will not find the settings at their new locations, so their installers will ask you to enter a registration key. This can be avoided by copying the settings back to MDaemon.ini, or restoring a backup of MDaemon.ini, first.

MAJOR NEW FEATURES

[21228] New Webmail Mobile theme

Webmail's Mobile theme has been replaced with a more modern GUI with more features. Message list features now include personalized categories, message snooze, sort by flagged/unread/snoozed, sort columns, and message recall. Calendar features now include Import/Export events as csv or ics files, add external calendars, private access links, publish calendar, and view multiple calendars at one time. Compose features now include deferred delivery, multiple signatures, text/html messages, and email templates. Other features include drag and drop email filters, multiple signatures editor, more folder management options, notifications, drag and drop column management, drag and drop categories management, and more. If running Webmail in IIS, additional configuration steps are needed. See KB article 1236 for more information.

[7402] Client signature management

Added the ability to configure a signature that is pushed to supported mail clients (Webmail and MDaemon Connector). A default client signature can be set at Setup | Server Settings | Client Signatures or it can be set per domain on the Domain Manager's "Client Signatures" screen. Use macros such as $CONTACTFULLNAME$, $CONTACTEMAILADDRESS$, to personalize the signature with data pulled from the user's contact in the domain's Public Contacts folder. Use the $ATTACH_INLINE:filename$ macro for inline images in the HTML signature. After entering signature text, it will appear in Webmail as the "System" signature, and will become the user's default signature. It can be enabled/disabled by default at Setup | Web & IM Services | Webmail | Settings or per domain on the Domain Manager's "Webmail" screen. For MDaemon Connector, the signature's name and related settings can be configured at Setup | MDaemon Connector | MC Client Settings | Signature. Requires MDaemon Connector 6.5.0 or newer, and "Push client settings to MC users" to be enabled. The $CLIENTSIGNATURE$ macro can be used in other mail clients to have the server add the client signature to messages.

MDaemon 19.0.1 - May 14, 2019

[21641] To simplify IIS configuration, the ISAPI DLLs MDMgmtWS.dll and MDDP.dll have been moved out of the \MDaemon\App directory and into \MDaemon\ISAPI\MDMgmtWS and \MDaemon\ISAPI\MDDP. If you had already set up IIS to reference these DLLs you will need to reconfigure IIS to access them from their new locations.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

[8811] MDaemon's disk space calculations were being made inconsistently in several places (for example, sometimes using 1000, sometimes using 1024 bytes for a kilobyte computation). This has been fixed to use 1024 consistently. As a result your users' disk space quota values may be slightly different than in previous versions. Please check and make whatever adjustments (if any) you feel are required.

[20595] The "Start MDaemon" Start Menu shortcut on new installs now defaults to opening a browser to MDaemon Remote Administration rather than opening an MDaemon Configuration Session. To change this, edit \MDaemon\App\MDaemon.ini and set [MDLaunch] OpenConfigSession=Yes/No and OpenRemoteAdmin=Yes/No, or use the "Open MDaemon Configuration Session" or "Open MDaemon Remote Administration" shortcuts instead of "Start MDaemon". Set the "Remote Administration URL" at Setup | Web & IM Services | Remote Administration | Web Server if the auto-generated URL does not work or if Remote Administration runs in an external web server. If a working URL cannot be determined, a Configuration Session will be opened instead.

[21263] 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.

[19471] SyncML has been deprecated and removed.

MAJOR NEW FEATURES

[21118] TLS Server Name Indication (SNI) support

SNI allows a different certificate to be used for each of your server's hostnames. MDaemon will look at the active certificates and choose the one that has the requested hostname in its Subject Alternative Names field. If the client does not request a hostname, or no matching certificate is found, then the default certificate is used.

[19427] XML-API for Folder and Item Management

The XML-API has been expanded to include the ability to manage mailbox folders and items in the folders. Folders can be created, deleted, renamed, and moved using the API. Item operations support email, calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. Items can be created, deleted and moved using the API. Full documentation can be found in the MDaemon\Docs\API\XML-API\ directory.
