MDaemon 15.5When vendors announce plans for all singing, all dancing, shiny new reseller incentives, there’s a good chance you’ll be thinking one or both of these things…
  • Why bother - one of the big companies will win
  • I bet this will be a headache to understand
You’d be right. They are common issues. However, we can assure you that neither apply to this one!

As part of an ongoing global pricing review, SecurityGateway developer Alt-N Technologies recently announced a reduction of up to 40% across nearly all licence sizes. This means highly effective email security, including message retention, and colour coded traffic logs, can now be purchased for as little as £143.00 + VAT for 10 users. SecurityGateway reseller? Don't forget to claim your free not-for-resale licence.

system-protectionI'm frequently asked by customers to explain exactly what's happening when BackupAssist performs a 'System Protection' job, so I figured a blog post on it was well overdue! Now bear with me as it may seem a little heavy going if you're new to the subject, but this stuff really is genuinely useful to get your head around, regardless of the backup software you use.

Set up an out of office responder in MDaemon

Before you hang up your mouse for the Christmas break, it's a good idea to make sure that if anyone contacts you via email, they know whether you're available and if not, when you'll be back. If you use MDaemon Messaging Server, rather than all staff replicating the same out of office autoresponder, you can use a simple temporary account and content filter rule to create a global version for all staff.

Cloud Hosted MDaemonIt's with great pleasure that I'm able to announce the launch of an exciting new service from Zen Software - Cloud Hosted MDaemon Mail Server. This new addition to our portfolio provides the perfect way for companies who recognise the benefits of having their own dedicated mail server, to also take full advantage of the benefits the cloud and hosted services bring.

While it'll probably never be 100% effective, the level of email security we have available to us today is less expensive and more effective than it's ever been. This may go some way to accounting for the recent rise, and added sophistication in phishing attacks as criminals choose to target the new weakest link, now located between the chair and keyboard.

BackupAssist v9.0Weak passwords are the most common method by which email accounts and servers can become compromised by spammers.  The great news is that Exchange alternative MDaemon Messaging Server, now offers an easy way to identify when somebody's using one that isn't secure via a simple but effective new reporting feature. Whether you then decide to name and shame, or just to give them a friendly nudge is entirely up to your discretion! :).
