As a user of Microsoft Exchange, Erik made the choice to archive his email with MailStore Server instead of Exchange’s archiving features and is keen to share his findings with his audience.
Exciting stuff! One of the leading Exchange resource sites today published a glowing review of MailStore giving it the highest category of praise and their coveted Gold award.
The author J. Peter Bruzzes, who’s an MVP and director of Exclusively Exchange gave a summary of the install process in his test lab environment. Not that we had any doubts, but we were extremely pleased to read his subsequent feedback which included quotes such as “I liked MailStore Server. I liked it a lot because it was incredibly easy-to-use, extremely flexible, reasonably priced and well supported”.
Given its long history, it’s not surprising to discover that most of what’s new in MDaemon 10 is behind the scenes. That said, the management interface does get a more colourful look, new icons and revised toolbars, making it far less cluttered and easier to navigate.

The Windows Mail server from Alt-N Technologies is often praised as an economical variation of Exchange or Lotus Domino. But that comparison doesn’t quite work because, for one thing, MDaemon handles SMTP functions that Exchange administrators can only dream of….
Already a leading alternative to Microsoft Exchange, Alt-N MDaemon has bumped up another version number in its aim to maintain leading-edge mail server functionality. In its latest incarnation, MDaemon primarily addresses mobile computing, groupware enhancements, and server performance.
The review covers the recently-released MDaemon 8, with its emphasis on expanded groupware functions and security technologies. Concerning MDaemon’s built-in groupware functions, ServerWatch says the ‘WorldClient browser interface is slick…’ and the groupware data integrates ‘seamlessly between WorldClient and Outlook’, through Alt-N’s Outlook Connector plug-in.
Alan Stevens reviews MDaemon 8 for ZDNet just prior to the release of Outlook Connector…”Popular with small to medium-sized businesses and beyond, MDaemon Pro is a fully featured SMTP mail server that can be further extended with a range of optional add-ons. Among these are an antivirus scanner and LDAP directory server plus MDaemon GroupWare, which adds Exchange-like collaboration features accessible both from the built-in Web client and via Outlook.”
When reviewing serious alternatives to installing an Exchange server, PCW’s reviewers gave MDaemon the Editor’s Choice award based on it’s comprehensive set of features, easy to use GroupWare add-in and solid anti-spam and antivirus protection.
