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 (

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.
