Here are my highlights – don’t forget, you can find the full exhaustive list of goodies in the MDaemon Release Notes.

MDaemon v16.5 – New antispam feature, auto-updating, webmail category support and lots more…

MDaemon 16.5

It’s inconvenient, it undoubtedly costs your business money and it has the potential to cause you headaches of epic proportions.

Perhaps that’s not the greatest sales strap line you’ve ever read?

Well, that’s because I’m not referring to MDaemon, in this case, I’m talking about your friend and mine, spam email.

You know, that particularly enjoyable type where seemingly innocuous messages from colleagues/ suppliers/ customers, turn out to be from one of those aspiring Mr. Robot types hell-bent on crypto’ing the life out of your data.

In 16.5 there’s less chance of that happening as one of the new features of interest is the simple, but effective ‘From Header Protection/ Modification’.

That’s not all – there’s auto-updating, centralised Outlook Connector settings, an XMPP server (yes, I had to Google it too) and some improvements to Worldclient you’ve been asking for.

Here are my highlights – as usual, you can find the exhaustive version available in the MDaemon Release Notes.

MailStore Promotion

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.

New Webinar: Sneak Preview of MDaemon 15

Microsoft Small Business Server was discontinued in 2013, leaving a real niche for MDaemon as lots of small businesses were forced to decide between “full blown” Exchange (as I like to call it) or the cloud and Office365.

It’s not a direct replacement – if you use all of Exchange’s advanced features you’ll most likely find something MDaemon won’t do (shared custom category synchronisation springs to mind) and vice versa, but 95% of it’s there.

Some pretty competitive pricing and no database to go all skewiff at 4:55pm on a Friday afternoon make it an attractive proposition for smaller companies in particular.
