Like all MDaemon releases, the developers at MDaemon Technologies continue to add new customer requested features and enhancements. Here is a quick overview of just some of the features end users and IT administrators will find helpful. A more comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements can be viewed in the MDaemon Email Server Release Notes.
Note: The "Start MDaemon" Start Menu shortcut on new installations now defaults to opening a browser to MDaemon Remote Administration rather than opening an MDaemon Configuration Session. Instructions for changing this behavior to launch the MDaemon console by default can be found in the MDaemon release notes.
MDaemon's XML-API has been expanded to include additional capabilities. Folders and their contents can be created, deleted, renamed, and moved using the API. Developers can use these expanded features to display or manipulate the content of user mailboxes. Full documentation can be found in the MDaemon\Docs\API\XML-API\ directory.
A new "External Message" Content Filter condition has been added, along with a new "Add a warning to the top of the message" action. This allows administrators to create a rule that will add a custom warning to the top of all email messages originating from external sources - providing extra protection against phishing attempts by alerting users to treat these messages with extra care.
MDaemon supports TLS Server Name Indication (SNI). This allows domains and host names to have their own assigned SSL/TLS certificate, rather than having to share a single certificate.
MDaemon's Dynamic Screening feature includes the option to send authentication failure and frozen account reports to end users. When a given number of authentication failures has been reached, or when an account has been frozen, the user is notified so that corrective action can be taken.
When logging in for the first time, MDaemon Webmail users will receive a prompt asking if they would like to create an "All Unread" and "All Flagged" saved search for convenient, one-click access to unread or important messages.
MDaemon Webmail will display (EXPIRED) on the browser tab when a user's session has expired. This allows users who have multiple browser tabs open to be notified when they have been logged out without having to switch tabs.
Domain-wide and user-specific email signatures now support macros which can be used to insert the sender's contact information and other details into the signature of an email message. Macros allow default and domain signatures to be personalized with the sender's full name, email address, business phone, home phone, business or home address, nickname, title, and much more. Please see the MDaemon release notes for a complete list of supported macros.
MDaemon Webmail users can now be exempt from location screening restrictions when two-factor authentication is used, allowing them to log into Webmail from countries that would normally be blocked by Location Screening.
Instant messaging has been added to MDaemon Webmail (WorldClient and LookOut themes), 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.
