For many years now its been common place for users to need access to their business email, calendars and contacts on their mobile devices. Over the years there have been different ways to achieve this, but by far the easiest to setup and the option with best support for access from any connection is ActiveSync.
One of the biggest concerns when changing email platform is how can you migrate all your users existing email, calendar and contacts data over without having to ask each user to backup and restore there own data via their email client.
In this blog article I want to introduce the ‘MDaemon ActiveSync Migration Client’ that makes the process of moving multiple mailboxes from any other ActiveSync capable server over to MDaemon a much easier task. Continue reading

Managing your overheads.
It’s just one of the endless art forms you need to master when you take the decision to become the owner of a small business.
In an ideal world, your IT expenses at least, would all be handled by a wonderfully competent outsourced IT support firm. Failing that, a trusted team of dedicated IT staff.
In my experience of the size of companies we tend to work with, it’s quite possible you’re not in possession of either of those things, and that can bump IT-related decisions down the priority order occasionally.
Cybercrime. Isn’t it just the gift that the keeps on giving?
Picture the scene…
You’re about to catch a flight, the final boarding call is but minutes away and you remember an email you absolutely had to get sent before take off.
Plucking your laptop from the post luggage check cable spaghetti, you perch in the lounge, successfully connect to the free wifi and hammer out your email masterpiece.
As you don the noise cancelling headphones and breathe a sigh of relief, you’re blissfully unaware that the chap in the lounge you’d assumed was buried in a spreadsheet, was actually running the data ‘sniffing’ software Wireshark.
Not many minutes later, you’re at 30,000 feet and he’s walking away with everything he needs to send email as you, and to view the sensitive contents of your messages (take a look at this video to see just how easy it is!) and to cause havoc for your business.
Not a nice hypothetical.
So what can you do to prevent it happening for real?
Ah, the good old days of Windows ’98.
That period will, of course, stick in your mind for ‘Bootie Call’ by All Saints topping the charts, and the release of the undisputed king of phones, the Nokia 5110.
They were, however, magical times for another reason.
Our businesses weren’t under permanent attack.
More is better. The mantra of the signature stuffer.
From job titles and contact details to special offers and even instructions to save the trees. Nothing is off limits when it comes to providing ‘useful’ information to our lucky recipients by the medium of email footer.
It’s a perfect picture unless of course, you’re the poor soul tasked with making sure the emails your company sends are consistent, professional and accurate.
If you’re that person, you’re going to love this latest MDaemon release.
With the deadline for GDPR fast approaching, all eyes are turning to compliance, security, and how we look after our data. MDaemon 18 is the latest offering of the mail server that enables business owners to remain in total complete control of both security and every other aspect of their email communications.
In this latest major release, Texas-based developer Alt-N Technologies add yet more features to boost security and improve usability.
Here are my highlights – don’t forget, you can find the full exhaustive list of goodies in the MDaemon Release Notes.
With the new year comes a new company name and strapline for our friends across the pond, as Texas-based ‘Alt-N Technologies’ become ‘MDaemon Technologies’ with immediate effect.
You may be familiar with the Alt-N brand, however it’s ‘MDaemon’, the Exchange alternative used in over 100 countries and by over 4 million users that’s the most widely recognised among IT communities.
In keeping with the slightly random pre-Christmas tradition of slashing prices like crazy in order to draw a crowd, we too will be offering an unbeatable Black Friday discount.
Until the end of November, we’ll cut the cost of buying any new MDaemon Email Server licence or add-on by a generous 30% off the advertised RRP’s.
MDaemon has long been a popular alternative to cloud email services such as Office365 for companies who demand the security, control and flexibility of their own email server.
