Still voted the number one alternative to Microsoft Exchange, MDaemon is aimed at small business owners who want the extra privacy and control that an on-premise email service can offer.
It’s a great tool to have in your armoury as an IT Service Provider, Reseller or MSP and what’s more, as a partner programme member you’re entitled to a fully functional, free copy for your own use.
MDaemon 14 was released earlier this week and with it, an updated webmail client with a snazzy new look and feel.
Outlook has a tendency to hog large chunks of memory and this, coupled with the cost of the licencing means that there’s an emerging market of users like myself who are looking for an alternative.
Ok brace yourself for a long ol’ set of release notes! This minor MDaemon update really does highlight the many hours our friends at the Texas-based developer Alt-N Technologies are putting in to make MDaemon the best mail platform out there for small businesses.
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.
MDaemon version 13.6 is out today and with it some useful enhancements, particularly if you’re using ActiveSync with your mobile devices.

Google Chrome has long been my favourite browser for many different reasons but it was only recently that I came across a very useful built-in feature that can turn any web page into an application shortcut.
If you’re a user of the MDaemon email server, and own either an iPhone, Android device or Windows mobile, it’s quite likely at some point you’ll want to synchronise your calendar, contacts and tasks etc.
While the set-up steps for configuring MDaemon and the devices themselves are very straightforward, because MDaemon needs to be visible to the outside world, there are some networking considerations to be aware of.
Alt-N Technologies have just released an update for MDaemon Messaging Server.
While it’s only a minor release, it does include a long list of small enhancements and fixes for the latest 13.5 version, concerning MDaemon’s GUI, ActiveSync, WorldClient and ComAgent.

We’re seeing a few cases where customers who’ve recently upgraded to MDaemon 13.5 are seeing some oddities with Worldclient. Essentially they’re no longer seeing the list of emails they’ve received and can’t select any items. This is obviously not by design and it only seems to effect users in Internet Explorer version 10.
