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.

Leading Microsoft Exchange resource site, MSExchange.org, has again awarded MailStore Server with their best accolade in a recent review conducted by Exchange expert, J. Peter Bruzzese.
