MDaemon Instant Messenger (formerly WorldClient Instant Messenger) allows users to chat with each other using their favorite third-party chat client, or with MDaemon's own MDaemon Instant Messenger application. This gives users the flexibility to chat from any device with a compatible XMPP client, including mobile devices.
MDaemon's multi-language Instant Messenger service allows secure communication between employees without the threat of third-party spam exposure while helping maintain your company's security compliance policies. MDaemon Instant Messenger messages are passed directly on the network through the MDaemon Email Server - not via peer-to-peer over the Internet like third-party IM clients. Each message is logged in a central location and is accessible to the MDaemon administrator for security policy enforcement.
You can view your list of MDaemon IM "Buddies" and each one's online status (online, away, offline), organize buddies into custom groups, start a conversation with any one or group of them, set your own online status, and view past conversations in a history folder. The IM interface is compatible with msstyles skins which are readily available on the Internet and comes with several included styles.
When using MDaemon Webmail, Instant Messenger can be set to run in the background and check your account for new mail by querying the server directly. This eliminates the need to open a browser or keep one open to check your email - MDaemon IM checks for new mail and notifies you with a sound or visual alert when new mail arrives. It also displays a list of your mail folders and the number and type of messages that each one contains (new, unread, and read). It can also be used to launch MDaemon Webmail and move it immediately to a specific mail folder, the first unread message, the compose page, or your calendar page.
MDaemon Instant Messenger can be used to provide two-way address book synchronization between the MDaemon Email Server and the Outlook / Outlook Express address book on each user's local computer. Thus, if you use both Outlook or Outlook Express and MDaemon Webmail at different times, the address books will match in both products.
Anyone using MDaemon IM with the proper access credentials can also add Public contacts by using the Windows Address Book directly, or through Outlook / Outlook Express. The new contact will be picked up by MDaemon IM and uploaded to MDaemon's address book. From there all other users on your network will have access to the new contact the next time their IM client queries MDaemon.
MDaemon's closed instant messaging supports peer-to-peer file transfer among users. So you can share your files over MDaemon IM's closed network.
For added security, MDaemon Instant Messenger users can chat with others via password protected chat rooms. When creating a new chat room via the MDaemon Instant Messenger application, simply enter the password that is required to join in the new Password field.
Archiving instant messaging conversations has become vital for many companies who wish to meet a growing number of regulations and laws regarding message archiving; including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, Basel II and FISMA. Because every IM passes through the server, each message is logged in a central location accessible to the MDaemon administrator. Thus a record of all conversations can be maintained for the security of both your company and your employees or users.
MDaemon Instant Messenger is available for download directly from within MDaemon Webmail and is installed on the individual's local computer. It is pre-configured for the specific user when downloaded thus limiting the need to configure it manually.
You have the flexibility to chat from any device with a compatible XMPP client, including mobile devices. There are many XMPP clients to choose from, including Trillian (Windows), Adium (Mac OSX), and Mozilla Thunderbird (Linux, OSX, Windows). A list of XMPP clients can be found here: http://xmpp.org/software/clients.htm. Features may vary depending on which XMPP client is used.
MDaemon Webmail (WorldClient and LookOut themes) includes integrated instant messaging, allowing users to chat with other local MDaemon users without needing to run the MDaemon Instant Messenger desktop application. MDaemon Instant Messenger uses standard protocols so users can still chat using other instant messaging clients on mobile devices and other platforms.
MDaemon Instant Messenger is offered in several different languages. Click here for the full list.
