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.
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.
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.
Neil 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. Each consists of like-minded IT support companies and managed service providers wanting to keep their “toe-in” with market and product developments, discuss some of the challenges they face in the field, and perhaps most importantly, help keep the local Dominos in business.
