SecurityGateway v4.0Would you find it useful to be able to see the entries in a colleague's calendar? Perhaps a few of you share a meeting room and you'd like the ability to manage bookings? Maybe you just need an out-of-office responder you can set from Outlook? Today sees a new point release of Outlook Connector, a highly recommended add-on for MDaemon Messaging Server. It's the part that provides all of the above, plus lots more 'Exchange-like' functionality to help you work more efficiently by collaborating better with your colleagues. Here are the highlights of this minor update - as always, you can find a more detailed list in the official release notes.

SecurityGateway v4.0Whether it's mildly irritating offers for cut-price blue pills, or something altogether more sinister such as holding your company files ransom, today's cyber-criminals are using increasingly sophisticated and varied techniques to target your business by email. Today saw the latest major release of SecurityGateway, a software firewall that sits between your Exchange, MDaemon, Kerio or Smartermail server, and your router, protecting your organisation from spam, viruses, spoofing, phishing and more. In this post, we take a whistle-stop tour of the new features. As always, this is just our highlights, a comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be viewed in the SecurityGateway Release Notes.

Gmail-block-ipv6I wanted to share an issue we've seen multiple reports of this week, where MDaemon customers have started receiving bouncebacks from Google mail servers. Valid email is being refused due to PTR record failures, and it's happening for all Gmail domains including customer registered domains that are used with Google services.

BackupAssist Email RemindersIt's inevitable. At some point, if you've got BackupAssist managing a pool of multiple drives or cartridges, the person responsible will forget to change them. One of the nice things about BackupAssist is that it'll automatically email the individual and tell them they're single-handedly responsible for putting the entire company at risk and that they're basically a bad person. Well...words to that effect. This is how you set up a reminder...

BackupAssist is most popular in the SMB market and as a result, is often used to back up servers running Microsoft Exchange. However there is more than one way to backup Exchange server using BackupAssist, and most importantly multiple options when it comes to restoring data back to exchange. In this blog post, I want to explain the main differences available with and without using the Additional Exchange Granular Restore console add-on and hopefully explaining how invaluable a tool it is for exchange administrators.

BackupAssist v9.3.0Developer Cortex I.T. have just announced the latest point release of BackupAssist, and it's a version we're highly recommending you upgrade to. In addition to the usual minor tweaks and improvements, there are two particularly good reasons we recommend you upgrade...
  • FIX: An important fix for Exchange backups - this release fixes a recently discovered issue concerning Exchange backups.
  • NEW: Great new restore search feature - a brand new feature to make even lighter work of locating your backed up files and folders.

MDaemon 15.5Despite the rise in popularity of cloud services, many businesses still prefer the control, privacy and dedicated nature of their own email server. MDaemon has been at the top of the list of alternatives to Microsoft Exchange for some time, and with this latest release, Texas-based developer Alt-N strengthens their place with a range of new features to help small business owners and admins alike. In this post I briefly highlight the new additions I think you'll find most interesting, including a fantastic new addition to the spam protection armoury and some terrific news if you're an iPhone or Apple OS X device user. As always, this is just our highlights, a comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be viewed in the MDaemon Release Notes.

archiving-mdaemon-email1Our standard recommendation for anyone who wants a true email archiving solution is MailStore Server, however, MDaemon does have some basic archiving capabilities worth being aware of too. Version 16 of MDaemon introduces changes to the way these native capabilities work, so in this post, I'm going to take a moment to explain the changes and the options now available to you.
