MailStore objections“We’re too small for that.” Ironically, small companies are often the ones most vulnerable to the consequences of both data loss and legal action. MailStore provides a perfect, unmodified copy of all messages and headers so you're always in possession of what could end up being evidence, just in case it's ever needed. The fast search is also just an extremely useful tool for saving the time it takes employees to perform searches for emails.

Its been a while since I recommended a useful free software tool. But this time I want to introduce a tool that I have been using for many years but recently have found very useful specifically when dealing with Rsync jobs in BackupAssist. Introducing WINSCP WINSCP is developed by Martin Prikryl  of Putty fame.  It is a simple utility that at first glance works in exactly the same way as an FTP client but with  some very useful features that stand out.

Being based in Manchester means we sometimes don't get as much face time as we might like with our resellers in the South, but we recently had the pleasure of stopping in and paying long-overdue visits to a couple of our valued Premium Partners. Business Computer Solutions (BCS) BCS logoIn addition to attending the SBS user group, the Kent visit was a great opportunity to spend some time catching up with group organisers and valued Premium Partner members, Business Computer Solutions (BCS).

James presenting at the Kent SBS user groupNeil and I recently returned from sunny Chatham where we were kindly invited to come along and talk to attendees of the Kent SBS user group about MDaemon Messaging Server. This is one of a number of regional groups across the UK which include Manchester, Reading Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

If you're looking to build a new home for your MDaemon server software, there are a few factors to be considered when deciding on a specification. I'm often asked by customers for some advice on which areas are best to invest in, so in this post I'll take a look at the main ones, which I hope will provide a good basis for building the right platform to meet your needs.

Our Aussie friends over at BackupAssist developers Cortex IT have recently released two excellent short videos showing the best practices for configuring the BackupAssist user identity. I often come across issues relating to rights associated with BackupAssist jobs. The BackupAssist user identity is key to correctly assigning these rights, so if you are using BackupAssist to back up a Windows Server we these are definitely worth a watch.
