CryptoSafeGuard: One-off Developer Led Webinar – Wednesday August 9th 2017

In case you missed my early heads up, the public release of CryptSafeGuard for BackupAssist is now but a few weeks away. It’s an anti-ransomware feature, it’s ever so timely and best of all, it’s free (provided you have valid upgrade cover of course!).

The senior development team over at BackupAssist are excited to let you know just how great it is, and with that in mind, are running a free one-off webinar for resellers on Wednesday 9th August @ 9.30am.  

If you can spare the time I highly recommend you attend as it’s a terrific opportunity to learn about a feature that could really help your customers (and you!) out of a tight spot should the unthinkable happen and their files become encrypted.

Not only that but it’s a rare chance to provide your thoughts and suggestions directly to the people who write the software.

With 205 million messages being sent every day, email still remains one of the most popular ways to communicate, which means the mailboxes of many businesses today contain all manner of information concerning both customers and staff.

Whether it’s bank details, employment contracts, IP addresses or altogether more sensitive information, the introduction of the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May next year will force companies to take the responsibility of managing this data seriously.

Coming Soon: CryptoSafeGuard Ransomware Protection for BackupAssist

When the Australian development team at BackupAssist let me know there would be an anti-ransomware feature available so soon after the recent high profile cryptolocker attacks, I have to admit, the timing seemed almost a little too convenient.

Until any concrete evidence comes to light, we’ll work on the basis they just know the market, but my investigations will continue nonetheless 🙂

5 Essential ‘Tune-up’ Tips for Your MailStore Server

Here at Zen Software, we love the fact MailStore is such a versatile animal, able to work with most mail platforms and the vast majority of requirements users throw at it. However, if you’ve got a large mail server running multiple jobs, or lots of hosted mail accounts, for example, it’s possible at some point that you could find yourself pushing the limits of your hardware or bandwidth.

Optimising it isn’t difficult and largely boils down to how fast and how often you need your new email added to the archive. The temptation when setting it up for the first time is to opt for the ‘as fast as possible’ approach, when in reality you may be hammering your resources unnecessarily.

In this post, I’ll look at that and provide some simple tips for optimising your MailStore installation around your business needs.

How to Enable Searching Within Attachments – MailStore Server

Straight out of the box, when you perform searches of your archived email as a MailStore user, it looks for your keywords in the header, body and subject of your messages. What you may not know, however, is that it also has the ability to search within some attachment types too if you enable the feature.

I’ve found this to be incredibly helpful when looking back over conversations with customers, helping me find invoice or project references for example, and I’m sure you’ll find it useful in your working day too.

Attachment searching is actually enabled by default, but it’s limited to only .txt and .HTML file extensions, so you’re not using its full potential.

In this short post, I’ll show you how to enable the feature and get MailStore to re-index your historic email so it works for that too.
