Would you find it useful to be able to see the entries in a colleague’s calendar? Perhaps a few of you share a meeting room and you’d like the ability to manage bookings? Maybe you just need an out-of-office responder you can set from Outlook?
Today sees a new point release of Outlook Connector, a highly recommended add-on for MDaemon Messaging Server. It’s the part that provides all of the above, plus lots more ‘Exchange-like’ functionality to help you work more efficiently by collaborating better with your colleagues.
Here are the highlights of this minor update – as always, you can find a more detailed list in the official release notes.
In a recent blog post I talked about how MailStore can help manage and speed up the unenviable task of migrating all of your historic Exchange 2003 email to MDaemon Messaging Server.
The point at which you’re moving email platform is ideal to be introducing an archiving solution like MailStore. Primarily because it will aid with the migration process itself, but also because it will manage your mailbox sizes on an ongoing basis too.
With this in mind, we’re offering a very healthy 50% off new MailStore licences to Exchange 2003 owners who are purchasing a new MDaemon licence of any size.
One the biggest challenges you’re likely to come across if you’re considering upgrading from Exchange 2003 to an alternative email platform, is how to move the colossal volumes of email you’re likely to have amassed over the years.
It can be a daunting prospect, but if you’re moving to MDaemon Messaging Server, the process is made considerably more simple than it might otherwise be, thanks to a free ‘MDMigrator’ utility that’s bundled in the installation folder.
Back in April 2014, support for Exchange 2003 was officially brought to a close by Microsoft. Among those impacted were the vast number of smaller companies using the hugely popular Small Business Server 2003.
Many moved across to alternative solutions early doors, but faced with unwanted expense and the potential for significant disruption, many sensibly remained firmly in the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” camp, putting off the decision for as long as possible.
MDaemon 14 was released earlier this week and with it, an updated webmail client with a snazzy new look and feel.
Outlook has a tendency to hog large chunks of memory and this, coupled with the cost of the licencing means that there’s an emerging market of users like myself who are looking for an alternative.
Microsoft’s decision last year to call time on Small Business Server has created a noticeable boost in demand for ‘on-premise’ email server software that will play nicely with Server 2012.
Small businesses unwilling or unable to follow the Microsoft route of moving everything to the cloud have been left looking for alternative suitors to Exchange that can offer the same experience for their Outlook, Web and mobile device users.
MDaemon Messaging Server is one such alternative. A staggering 18 years on from it’s initial launch as one of the first Windows mail servers, we take a look at what’s new in the latest and greatest version 14…
