MDaemon ActiveSync

Multiple Devices under One Account

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Multiple Devices

Many people commonly have more than one mobile device. With ActiveSync for MDaemon, any user can have multiple devices of any make/model on a single account, making it easy to sync all your MDaemon email, calendar, contacts, and tasks.

Push Email

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Push Email

ActiveSync for MDaemon uses Push email technology that provides an always-on capability, in which new email is actively transferred (pushed) to the device after it is received by the MDaemon mail server.

Customizable Device IT Policies

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Policy Editor

Enhance your mobile device security through ActiveSync policies. You can manage pre-defined policies and create your own policies from the Mobile Device Management screen. Policies can be created from many options*, including:

  • Password Options:
    • Require Alpha-Numeric Password (with Complexity Level)
    • Allow Simple Password
    • Require Device Encryption
    • Password Expiration Settings
    • Remember Old Passwords
    • Minimum Password Length Settings
    • Max Failed Password Attempts
    • Inactivity Timeout (Device Lock) Settings
  • Sync Options:
    • Allow Attachments to be Downloaded to Device (with Max Size Option)
    • Email Synchronization Period
    • Calendar Synchronization Period
    • Require Manual Sync on Roam
  • Device Options:
    • Allow Browser
    • Allow Camera
*Note: Not all ActiveSync devices recognize or apply policy consistently. Some may ignore policy altogether and others may require a device reboot before changes take effect (defeating the purpose of many of the policy elements). Also, no policy is applied until the next time the device connects on its own to the ActiveSync server.

Remote Wipe

If a device is lost or stolen, the MDaemon administrator can use the Wipe command to erase all data on the device, or restore the device to its factory default state.


MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Autodiscovery

Autodiscover (or Auto Detect) Service: A user can easily create an account on their mobile device by entering their email and password. They do not need to know their server name to setup the email service. The feature facilitates the discovery of core account configuration information by using the user's SMTP address as the primary input, which significantly simplifies the configuration of mobile devices.

Multiple Folder Synchronization

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Multiple Folder Synchronization

ActiveSync bundles all sync requests together instead of doing a sync for each folder separately, so battery life and data won't be consumed constantly and there's far lower message delivery latency.

Global Address Lookup

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Global Address List

Global Address List (GAL), also known as Global Address Book, contains contact info and other resources associated with a contact to enable your MDaemon users to look up your other MDaemon users' contact info.

SSL Encrypted Transmissions

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: SSL Encrypted Transmissions

Short for Secure Sockets Layer, it's used for transmitting private data securly. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data - a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message. ActiveSync for MDaemon uses SSL encrypted transmissions to send all of its data between MDaemon mail server and your mobile devices.

Device Whitelists and Blacklists

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Whitelist

ActiveSync supports a device ID, device type, and device OS whitelist and blacklist. You can whitelist or blacklist devices based on their ID, type, and OS values.

Forgetting Inactive Devices

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Forgetting Inactive Devices

The ActiveSync Options screen will let you specify the number of days of inactivity after which MDaemon will forget about a particular device. This setting defaults to 31 days. When MDaemon forgets a device, it means that any previous configuration and/or access history is discarded. The next time the device connects it will be forced to re-provision if a policy is in place at the domain level, perform an initial folder sync, and re-sync all subscribed folders. This helps to keep your installation clean from having a lot of old/retired/ unused devices. As part of the daily cleanup event, MDaemon will check all devices for inactivity.

Device Protocol Restrictions

MDaemon - Mobile Device Management - ActiveSync for MDaemon: Device Protocol Restrictions

The Restrictions screen lets you specify User Agent and Device Type values and restrict devices matching those values to one or more specific versions of ActiveSync (choose from 2.5, 12.1, 14.0, and 14.1 Protocols). The ActiveSync server will communicate with matching devices using only the selected protocol version(s).

ActiveSync for MDaemon installs along with MDaemon but it is a separate product from MDaemon and will only run as a trial for 30 days. After that, a fee is required. The trial begins when you install MDaemon and enable ActiveSync for the first time.
