A new update for MailStore has just been made available by the German development team and is now available to download from our Web site.
This release consists mostly of minor fixes and there’s couple of small feature updates in there for good measure too.
A new update for BackupAssist has just been made available by the Australian development team and is now available to download from our Web site.
As you can see from the release notes this update consists primarily of fixes although if you’re a reseller you might be interested to learn that it’s now possible to add your own logo in to the interface and splash screen of BackupAssist.
You may recall towards the tail end of last year I posted about BackupAssist developer Cortex’s excellent series of six Rsync videos.
I know the ability to off-site your data using BackupAssist is a popular feature so I wanted to let you know that Cortex have updated the series in line with the new version 7 release and I’ve also updated my original post.
If you use BackupAssist with Rsync jobs I highly recommend you follow the guide lines in these videos to keep up with best practices.

BackupAssist consists of fixes only while the SecurityGateway release sees a new licencing authentication system implemented and the withdrawal of support for Windows XP (versions prior to SP2 ) and Server 2003 (versions prior to SP1).
Whether you’ve already come across something similar or just want to further your technical understanding of the product, we’d highly recommend a watch when you get a moment…
As well as letting you know whether or not the MDaemon server is running, the MDaemon envelope icon in the system tray will also change colour depending on the current server status.
Where is the envelope icon?
When MDaemon is running as a system service it will show a status icon in the system tray. Unfortunately the latest Microsoft Operating systems restrict running services from interacting with the desktop automatically. Within Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 you will only see the MDaemon system tray icon after you have launched the MDaemon configuration session from the start menu at least once as the logged in user. You can then close the MDaemon configuration session and the icon will remain.
