You may have picked up in the IT press recently that we’re starting to see an industry-wide movement to a new, and importantly more secure, standard of SSL certificate.
Alt-N Technologies, developer of the Exchange alternative MDaemon Messaging Server have just announced they too are following this trend and stating they’ll be replacing all end-point and intermediate server certificates with those based on the new SHA-2 algorithm.
Important note: Alt-N will be moving to SHA-2 SSL certificates on January 20, 2015.
UPDATE: 10/12/13 Google released Android 4.4.2 today and I can confirm that this now fixes the Exchange sync issue on my Nexus 5. See below for more details…
A couple of us in the office have just taken delivery of some shiny new Nexus 5’s – fantastic devices we’re really happy with but we’ve unfortunately both come across what looks to be a known issue setting up the ActiveSync connection to synchronise them with MDaemon Messaging Server.
MDaemon has an integrated ActiveSync server but this issue with the devices will also apply to those of you who use Microsoft Exchange.
In the latest version of BackupAssist (7.3.1), there was a change to the activation process I’d like to make you aware of as it’s understandably catching a few customers out.
In the latest version there was a change implemented to help ensure that as a customer you’re on the ‘local’ build of the software, complete with support links that point back to our technical team here in the UK.
