MDaemon v13.6.1 now live – includes KitKat compatibility fix

This one is mainly ‘dotting the I’s’ as it were but there’s an awful lot of them! Also if you’ve picked up one of the newer Android devices recently, you’ll no doubt be pleased to hear that you can now connect it quite happily via ActiveSync thanks to the compatibility fix for KitKat.

Simpler synchronisation of your Android device using ActiveSync

Up until quite recently I’ve always recommend that if you’re an Android mobile user who needs access to your email, calendar and contacts, the best method was to use IMAP to synchronise your email and ActiveSync for the calendar and contacts.

Thankfully, ActiveSync ‘push’ email was added to MDaemon in version 12, so you’re now able to enjoy full synchronisation of both your email accounts, calendar and contacts with just a single ActiveSync account.
