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.
It’s worth noting this release includes a whole host of minor tweaks to Worldclient (notable an HTML signature editor) and WebAdmin which you can read about in the release notes but I think it’s the following you’ll be most interested in.
One of the nice things about using a different browser to Internet Explorer, are the hidden functions that you find are added to make them stand out from the crowd.
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.
