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.
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.
The MDaemon download/install file now includes all former plug-ins which are now "licensed features" of MDaemon that require a separate license key [Learn More].
DNSSEC is a technology that digitally signs DNS data so that you can be assured that it’s valid. It was created to combat man-in-the-middle attacks that are possible in the DNS system. These types of attacks can lead to users being directed to a hijacker’s own deceptive website in an attempt to collect personal data. To help ensure MDaemon does not become a victim of these attacks, it is now capable of requesting DNSSEC be used when available.
If you have adjusted MDaemon's security settings over time and are unsure of the best settings for optimal security, you can now set each security feature to its recommended setting with a single mouse click in MDaemon Remote Administration.
Remote Administration & Webmail users can enable the Remember Me feature to automatically login without having to enter a username and password. The Remember Me duration can be configured by the administrator for up to 365 days.
When composing a message, MDaemon Webmail users can use the Advanced Options screen to instruct MDaemon to encrypt the message, retrieve their public key, or retrieve the public key of another user (if available). This greatly simplifies the process of sending secure, encrypted email using MDaemon PGP. Click here to learn how to setup Email Encryption for MDaemon
MDaemon Webmail users can snooze emails to temporarily remove them from their inbox until they need them. The user’s email will reappear in the inbox at the configured time, whether it's tomorrow, next week, or when you get home. Snoozed messages can be displayed at any time using the View Snoozed Messages options.
MDaemon Webmail users can publish a calendar to a publicly accessible URL for easy sharing and collaboration. For added security, these public calendars can be password protected. To publish a calendar, click the Share Folder icon for your calendar under the Options|Folders menu in MDaemon Webmail, enter an optional display name and password under the Public Access tab, and then click on Publish Calendar. Anyone who has the calendar’s URL and optional password can view it in their browser. More information on how to enable this feature globally or on a per-user basis can be found in the MDaemon release notes.
When viewing a message in MDaemon Webmail using the WorldClient, LookOut, or Mobile theme, users can click on a button to listen to the message.
NOTE: This feature is currently only supported in Chrome or Firefox.
When MDaemon Antivirus is enabled, administrators can now configure a schedule to scan all mailboxes. This allows the detection of any infected messages that may have passed through before any new virus definitions were created to detect the latest threats.
An option has been added to allow a previously known device to bypass location screening when connecting via MDaemon ActiveSync. Administrators can enable this option to allow users to continue to access their account from locations that are configured to have their authentication attempts blocked.
