How to pre-check email before it’s sent (Editor approval)

One of the particularly nice features in MDaemon is the ability to customise the flow of email through the use of its built in content filters.

In the past we’ve mainly focused on using the content filter in different ways to automate tasks, change message content and redirect mail to other locations.

In this article I’ll give you an overview of how you can make use of the content filter and MDaemon’s custom queues to intercept some or all outbound email, have a user check and authorise it manually, and then let it continue along its intended delivery path.

Support queries shared: Bulk archiving existing PST files into MailStore

It’s likely that if you’ve been using Outlook to archive your emails, by the time you get to the point where you’re ready to  use a dedicated email archiving product such as MailStore, you’ll have a number of PST archive files knocking about, and quite possibly in a variety of locations.

There are a long list of reasons why we recommend against archiving to PST (which you can read all about in another post), but in this article I’m going to focus on what to do if you have gone down that route, and show you how to upload and centralise multiple PST archives in one go rather than one at a time.

Email archiving methods explained: Journaling Vs. mailbox collection

How should you archive with MailStore?

 

 

 

If you’ve just downloaded MailStore, you’re no doubt primed and ready to start hitting “next, next, next” to get up and running as soon as possible. Before you do however, it is worth just taking a moment to think about your requirements in a little more detail.

We see all sorts of weird and wonderful variations to cater for different customer scenarios, but in most cases you’ll need to consider which combination of “journalling“, and direct connection to individual mailboxes you’re going to use to archive your email.

MDaemon 13 beta preview: Part 4 – Ticketing system

Another week, another set of new features to look at in the beta version of MDaemon version 13.

Let’s look at one of the more useful business features of MDaemon, the ability to capture email arriving on group email address such as sales@ and support@, and storing them directly into public folders. This feature allows a group of sales or support staff to monitor the public folders and take ownership of the emails, sharing the workload.

MDaemon Messaging Server – a viable alternative to Microsoft Exchange?

MDaemon, Exchange or Office365?Towards the end of my last post I touched on the fact that Microsoft’s recent announcement to drop Small Business Server next year has given particularly its partner community, reasons to look around at potential alternative solutions to Exchange.

In this post I take a moment to highlight some of the reasons MDaemon Messaging Server should be on that list of alternatives you might be considering, including how the costs look alongside the equivalent Microsoft products.

MailStore 7 Beta now available

MailStore Beta

Over the past 12 months we’ve been actively involved in passing feature requests back to MailStore on behalf of our customers, and its great to see how many of these have made it to this early preview of version 7.

There are two features that really stand out for me. The first is the new archive store concept, which amongst other things will enable the reorganising of archive folders between users. Second is the speed improvements that have come from multi-threading, and the different back end database store options for Microsoft SQL and PostgreSQL which provide more options to help those larger site installations.

For a full list of the new features Version 7 brings along with a link to the Beta download simply follow this link.
