ServerWatch: MDaemon 9.0 Enhancements Maintain Leading-Edge Mail Server Functionality

Grapevine, TX -- June 19, 2006 -- Improvements in mobile computing, groupware features and server performance are helping the MDaemon messaging platform maintain its "leading-edge mail server functionality," according to a June 15, 2006, review of MDaemon 9.0 on ServerWatch (www.serverwatch.com).

An independent organization publishing server news and reviews, ServerWatch is respected in the industry for its exhaustive and reliable analyses of email technologies.

Noting MDaemon's existing leadership as a "leading alternative to Microsoft Exchange," the review applauds its "nearly turnkey" installation with the server being "ready to go in just a few minutes".

Other highlights from the MDaemon 9.0 review include praises for:

  • Alt-N adding support for the SyncML protocol, which synchronizes address books, tasks, and calendars between email accounts and mobile devices.
  • The "slick, polished" web interfaces for the WebAdmin administration tool and Lookout, MDaemon's web mail clone of Outlook.
  • The new web mail PocketPC theme for PDAs and phones with PocketPC 2003 or Windows Mobile server-side contacts, tasks, and calendars.
  • A free/busy server for publishing the availability of other account holders' schedules when setting up meetings through MDaemon's groupware freature.
  • Performance boosts by multi-threading message processing, content filtering, and IMAP operations.
  • Spinning off anti-spam as an independent server, which enables installing anti-spam and MDaemon on separate machines, potentially improving performance even more under heavy loads.
  • Adding Microsoft's Sender ID to MDaemon's other authentication protocols -- SPF, DomainKeys, and HashCash.
  • Implementing Active Directory monitoring for account management and AD queries for creating mailing lists.
