One of the most overlooked areas of email security is your own domain reputation. Unlike most email security solutions, Reputation is focused on you as the sender's ability to send email to recipients and to stop spammers from spoofing you and claiming to send email as your domain.

We've received a notification from the MDaemon Development Team that they've issued a critical patch to correct a potential vulnerability in MDaemon Remote Administration and Webmail (Worldclient).

For many years now its been common place for users to need access to their business email, calendars and contacts on their mobile devices. Over the years there have been different ways to achieve this, but by far the easiest to setup and the option with best support for access from any connection is ActiveSync.

There is a new release of MDaemon, Version 19.5.1 please see below for the list of Special Considerations and Changes before installing this update. If you have any questions about this release please feel free to contact us on support@zensoftware.co.uk

MDaemon and dynamic, centrally managed signatures More is better. The mantra of the signature stuffer. From job titles and contact details to special offers and even instructions to save the trees. Nothing is off limits when it comes to providing 'useful' information to our lucky recipients by the medium of email footer. It's a perfect picture unless of course, you're the poor soul tasked with making sure the emails your company sends are consistent, professional and accurate. If you're that person, you're going to love this latest MDaemon release.

Black Friday MDaemon Promotion In keeping with the slightly random pre-Christmas tradition of slashing prices like crazy in order to draw a crowd, we too will be offering an unbeatable Black Friday discount.  Until the end of November, we'll cut the cost of buying any new MDaemon Email Server licence or add-on by a generous 30% off the advertised RRP's. MDaemon has long been a popular alternative to cloud email services such as Office365 for companies who demand the security, control and flexibility of their own email server. 

MDaemon 17 MDaemon remains the leading alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, providing companies who need the security and control of their own mail server with easy to use features at a highly competitive price. 25 years on from MDaemon's launch, we see Texas-based developer Alt-N Technologies add yet more features to boost security and an update for Outlook Connector. Here are my highlights - don't forget, you can find the full exhaustive list of goodies in the MDaemon Release Notes.

Whether it's bank details, employment contracts, IP addresses or altogether more sensitive information, the introduction of the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May next year will force companies to take the responsibility of managing this data seriously.

Unless you've somehow managed to avoid both the news headlines and the barrage of content from IT security vendors that followed, you'll no doubt be aware that a couple of weeks ago, there was a particularly severe ransomware attack that affected over 100,000 businesses around the globe, including the NHS. The latest evidence indicates that the recent 'WannaCry' attack originated via an exploit tool created by the NSA, however it's more common they originate via 'phishing' emails, the technique of tricking recipients into clicking a malicious link or opening an attachment, often appearing to be from a colleague or relative. So with this in mind, now seems like a great time to give you a refresher on the features at your disposal as an MDaemon administrator to help prevent the type of phishing attack that can lead to a ransomware infection, along with some additional tips on best practice. (Almost all of the security tools for MDaemon are in the SecurityPlus add-on so for the purpose of this post, I'll be assuming you've got that installed.)
