This video provides an overview of MDaemon Webmail, MDaemon's browser-based email client.
The MDaemon Email Server stores messages and groupware collaboration data on the email server, thus centralizing all business content. MDaemon Webmail allows you to share email folders (including sub-folders), calendars with free / busy scheduling, contacts, distribution lists, tasks, notes, and documents between users. Uses Unicode UTF-8 Output.
MDaemon Webmail users can enter multiple personalized signatures, set up "out of office" messages, flag messages, compose messages in plain-text or HTML (including images), spell check with its local customizable dictionary, activate the Handicap Accessible Reader, configurable their own Time Zone, and much more.
MDaemon Webmail can be displayed in over 25 different languages, ensuring that your offices around the globe can communicate in their native languages.
The MDaemon Webmail Mobile theme allows MDaemon users to access their Email, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks & Notes on their smartphone or tablet. The Mobile theme is optimized for smaller screens and has Mail Forwarding options.
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
Messages that have been verified by DKIM will display an icon in the message header in MDaemon Webmail to help users verify the message's authenticity. This helps to assure users that the message is legitimate and that the sender address was not spoofed.
Two-Factor Authentication (TFA) can make users more secure when strong passwords may not have been implemented. MDaemon Webmail users who enable Two-Factor Authentication will be required to enter a verification code before they can have a logged in session. This feature can be used with any client that supports Google Authenticator (available in the Google Play store).
Inline images in email messages are often used by spammers and marketers to determine whether or not you've opened an email. This also tells them whether the email was delivered successfully and whether the destination email address was valid. For this reason, inline images in email messages are often blocked. MDaemon Webmail has an advanced option setting to allow inline images in messages from whitelisted senders and contacts from a user's default contacts folder without additional user interaction.
The password recovery feature allows users to designate a password recovery email address. When a user has forgotten their password, they can click on a "Forgot password?" link which takes them to a page that asks them to confirm their password recovery email address. When this address is entered correctly, a link to a page that allows the user to change their password is sent to that address. Also a drop-down list of strong password requirements is viewable by clicking on the icon next to the "Password" information, and shows up when a user's password change does not meet the requirements.
MDaemon Webmail users have the option of sending a message at a later date and time. This feature is located under the Advanced button in the message compose window. Simply select the desired date and time in the new drop-down menus, and then click on Send.
When composing a message in MDaemon Webmail, users can designate a Reply-To address that's different from the email address the user is sending from. Replies to outbound messages will be sent to the Reply-To address instead of the address from which the message is sent. A default Reply-To address can be entered and saved so that users do not have to specify the Reply-To address each time they compose a message.
Your emails can be saved and viewed as .eml files.
Users can also create unlimited personal folders and sorting filters, enabling MDaemon Webmail to automatically organize your messages on the fly. Filtering rules can be created based on the message sender, recipient, size, content, and more.
MDaemon Webmail ("LookOut" and "WorldClient" themes ) has category selections for easy sorting and identification of email messages. Messages can be sorted by category, and multiple categories can be assigned to a message. Authorized users can create their own custom categories in addition to using the built-in categories.
MDaemon Webmail users can perform the following folder management tasks without having to go to the Options | Folders menu
Complex filters allow MDaemon Webmail users to specify filtering rules based on the message size or any message header. Messages meeting a filter's criteria can be moved to another folder, deleted, forwarded, or redirected.
MDaemon Webmail allows users to search their Inbox and other mail folders (including tasks, contacts, and notes) by sender, recipient, subject, and content. Advanced search options include the ability to search all mail folders, or all sub-folders.
MDaemon Webmail allows users to create multiple personal and public address books, allowing users to share some contacts while keeping others private. Users can import and export groups/distribution lists to & from their Contacts folders.
MDaemon Instant Messenger can be used to provide two-way address book synchronization between 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.
MDaemon Webmail users can import or export vCards (.vcf a file format standard for electronic business cards supported by a wide variety of email clients) into their default contacts folder. vCards enable users to send and receive contact information in a format that can be easily read in other email programs. VCards contain various details about a contact, including name, company name, email address, postal address, phone number, and additional comments. They can be downloaded locally or sent to a designated email address, and then imported into any email client that supports the VCard format.
MDaemon Webmail's Contacts and Distribution List management settings allow quick access to all personal and public address books.
Manage your appointments and important dates with the built-in calendar with free/busy integration. Use the Scheduling feature to add multiple appointment attendees while avoiding scheduling conflicts.
The "WorldClient" and "Lookout" themes include the ability to display calendars by year, month, week, day, list, or side-by-side for easier viewing.
Easily share your MDaemon Webmail calendar data with external users who are using third-party mail clients by sharing a private, read-only copy of your calendar with any client that supports the iCalendar/Webcal format. A new read-only, private URL has been added to the "Share Folder" screen in MDaemon Webmail. This URL can be shared with anyone for whom you wish to grant access to your calendar. This allows a calendar to be viewed and subscribed to in Outlook, Google Calendar, Mac iCal, and other applications. Users can also publish their calendars to a public URL. Anyone who has the calendar’s URL and optional password can view it in their browser.
The Tasks list allows you to keep track of your important to-do lists. The intuitive task list display allows you to keep track of task progress, status, and due dates. Tasks can be prioritized by level of importance, and notes can be entered for each task. Tasks can further be marked as private and assigned to different categories as needed.
MDaemon's webmail feature allows you to select multiple files and attach them to a message via a simple drag and drop method for greater productivity. This functionality is supported in both the "WorldClient" and "LookOut" themes using HTML5 enabled browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox. Attachments are sortable, searchable, and can also be printed along with an email.
Document sharing has been added to provide a central repository for documents to be accessed and shared by designated users. Document folders have full ACL (access control list) controls that can be used to set permissions and sharing rules (e.g., read only, edit, or full control). All file types can be shared through the system. Improved search capabilities make it easy to search shared documents by file name for easy retrieval, review, and attachment to new messages.
MDaemon Webmail users can save message attachments directly to their Dropbox accounts and attach files directly from Dropbox when composing a message.
MDaemon Webmail supports adding inline images in composed HTML messages. There are four ways to add an image to a message composed in MDaemon Webmail.
You can use the Email Templates feature to create pre-written common messages, or regularly used blocks of text to insert into messages. There are many uses for email templates, for example, if you frequently use email drafts for commonly sent responses, or commonly used sets of instructions.
Desktop notifications allow MDaemon Webmail users (using the "LookOut" or "WorldClient" theme) to receive notifications of new email messages, new instant messages, event & task reminders, and any change in status of a chat buddy.
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.
The included MDaemon Instant Messenger plug-in can run in the background and check your account for new mail by querying the server directly, thus eliminating the need to open a browser or keep one open to check your email. 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 be set to launch MDaemon Webmail and immediately display a specific mail folder, the first unread message, the compose page, or your calendar page.
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.
RelayFax Network Fax Manager enables faxes to be sent directly from within MDaemon Webmail's "Lookout" theme, to leverage web-based faxing capabilities, and more. ("Lookout" theme feature only)

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.
