MDaemon v13.6.1 now live – includes KitKat compatibility fix

Ok brace yourself for a long ol’ set of release notes! This minor MDaemon update really does highlight the many hours our friends at the Texas-based developer Alt-N Technologies are putting in to make MDaemon the best mail platform out there for small businesses.

This one is mainly ‘dotting the I’s’ as it were but there’s an awful lot of them! Also if you’ve picked up one of the newer Android devices recently, you’ll no doubt be pleased to hear that you can now connect it quite happily via ActiveSync thanks to the compatibility fix for KitKat.

Blackberry Z10 user? We need you!

With the release of BlackBerry v10.0 last week, the method for synchronising the new set of BlackBerry 10 devices with MDaemon has changed. A BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) is no longer required for synchronisation, and handsets now use the ActiveSync standard for personal data synchronisation.
