BackupAssist v9.0Exciting stuff this morning - the latest major version of the ever-popular BackupAssist has been made live on our site and there's lots in it to talk about. A couple of notes before I go in to the highlights...
  • If your current licence is expired, you have until precisely Midnight tonight to take advantage of our renewals promotion!
  • Thanks so much to all who participated in the beta test phase - we had a great response and it's been a huge help in ensuring this release is the best it possibly can be.

The IT Marketing AgencyHi there, I’m delighted and flattered that Zen Software have asked me to write a guest blog, and we thought that some simple steps to get started on marketing your MSP business would be a topic that worked for both of us, and hopefully you, too! Firstly…if you’re not doing ‘much’ (or even ‘any’!) marketing, you’re not alone! In my previous roles of Head of Marketing for Ingram Micro and Network Group as well as in the work I do now, I meet a lot of MSPs. Almost without exception they tell me sheepishly “I know I should be doing more (for which I read ‘some’) marketing”. Or “Here’s my card, but don’t look at the website, it’s being redesigned.” Or if they’re being honest: “I just don’t know where to start!”. So, here’s where to start. And by the end of this blog post, you’ll have no excuse not to – so be prepared! ☺

MailStore Promotion In a recent blog post I talked about how MailStore can help manage and speed up the unenviable task of migrating all of your historic Exchange 2003 email to MDaemon Messaging Server. The point at which you're moving email platform is ideal to be introducing an archiving solution like MailStore. Primarily because it will aid with the migration process itself, but also because it will manage your mailbox sizes on an ongoing basis too. With this in mind, we're offering a very healthy 50% off new MailStore licences to Exchange 2003 owners who are purchasing a new MDaemon licence of any size.

Exchange to MDaemonOne the biggest challenges you're likely to come across if you're considering upgrading from Exchange 2003 to an alternative email platform, is how to move the colossal volumes of email you're likely to have amassed over the years. It can be a daunting prospect, but if you're moving to MDaemon Messaging Server, the process is made considerably more simple than it might otherwise be, thanks to a free 'MDMigrator' utility that's bundled in the installation folder.

MDaemon 15.5Back in April 2014, support for Exchange 2003 was officially brought to a close by Microsoft. Among those impacted were the vast number of smaller companies using the hugely popular Small Business Server 2003. Many moved across to alternative solutions early doors, but faced with unwanted expense and the potential for significant disruption, many sensibly remained firmly in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" camp, putting off the decision for as long as possible.

MDaemon 15.5We've just put the latest major iteration of MDaemon Messaging Server live on our web site. Along with a long list of minor tweaks it includes some great new features for both admins and users alike. In this post I briefly highlight the new additions I think you'll find most interesting, including a real breakthrough for Mac users and further enhancements to the email encryption features. As always, this is just our highlights, a comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be viewed in the MDaemon Release Notes.

BackupAssist beta testingOur Australian friends over at BackupAssist have been working hard to make sure v9 is the best release yet. They could however, really do with your help in testing the Beta version (released this morning) to make sure it's as good as it possible can be come the final release. As the distributor we like to provide as much feedback as we can, but we also rely on the fantastic response we always receive from customers and partners to help make sure we've got the broadest testing base. Please note -  As a beta product, we do not recommend using this version of BackupAssist v9 on live or production machines.

BackupAssist renewal promotionIf you, or one of your customers, own a copy of BackupAssist with expired upgrade cover (you can check here), for the next four weeks, we're offering a brilliant opportunity to bring it up to date (which also reinstates the free technical support cover). Renewing an expired licence would normally be £95.00 + VAT, but up to and including Monday 14th September, it will be available to you at the non-expired rate of £66.00 + VAT. **Now extended to 30th September 2015** The reason for this sudden turn of generosity is two-fold...

Windows 10Unless you've been living on a remote island for the last couple of weeks, and also covering up your Windows task bar every time you use your computer, you probably know that Windows 10 is now available to the masses. Yes, Microsoft's new flagship desktop O/S is upon us in all of it's glory. It'll take some time to see whether the hype was justified, and of course to discover the new features (and quirks), but if you've already upgraded or are thinking about doing so, you'll no doubt be keen to know how it interacts with our products. In this update I'll detail what level of support (if any) is currently offered for each of the products we distribute.

If you currently use an on-premise mail server such as Exchange or MDaemon Messaging Server, SecurityGateway is a fantastic way to protect your business against the many email-based threats in circulation. This summer, developer Alt-N technologies have announced they'll be offering 30% off the cost of all NEW licences, which means SecurityGateway is currently £70.00 + VAT for 5 users!
