        • Add support for clustering

          Allow for a two machine setup so that a user's mailbox can be located on two servers, such that the two mailboxes are synchronised in an IMAP like fashion. Both mail servers can receive mail via alternate MX records and update the user's local mailbox, which in turn gets synchronised with the corresponding mailbox in the alternate server.
           
          Likewise a user can connect to either servers to read, delete or send mail and the other server's corresponding mailbox will get synchronised accordingly.

          • Store message in a database

            Hi,

            With huge mail box on IMAP Mdaemon is a bit slow, store mail in a free (of course) db could be a very good features, easier to retrieve a mail (a simple sql command line to search throught thousand message for example). Easier to backup and move (have you try to move the directory users from a server to an other server with 500 gb of mail) , more securised.

                • Unify OutlookConnector and WorldClient user signatures

                  Unify Outlook Connectors and WorldClient private signatures so that when you configure a signature to be used in OutlookConnector it is also configured in WorldClient and when you set a signature in WorldClient it is set in OutlookConnector.

                  • Include traffic charts that show number of messages sent per user per day

                    Record how many messages a user sends per day (this would be very useful for the stats and traffic graphs, but also would help choose a value to block on)

                      • I would like the option to install WorldClient on a separate machine

                        I would like the option to install WorldClient on a separate machine from MDaemon. Currently WorldClient must be running on the same machine with MDaemon and its not very secure to have an open port on your firewall that connects to your mail server on the LAN.

                        • Ability to batch import PST files into users mailboxes

                          Customers migrating from other Mail platforms often have a set of per user PST files they wish to migrate over to MDaemon. Currently the method of migrating this information involves each user setting up a new Outlook connector profile, Mounting the PST and moving the data over manually.

                          This works but is long winded for multiple users. It would be great if this migration could happen at the server. For example. you could have a migration tool that matches PST files (named to match MDaemon user accounts) and runs through the process of importing the data within the PST file…

                                • Flexibility in licensing model to accommodate for fail-over servers, or cluster discount

                                  Some situations arise where mail servers are installed in a VM, and a copy of the guest instance to a redundant server, in the event that the primary goes offline.
                                  Unfortunately 2 identical servers, only possible difference being difference in MAC, IP & hostname, cannot run at the same time (usually a testing situation), and causes needless complexity in the activation (and could in fact invalidate both).

                                  Only a single server of the 2 will be the active principal server at any given time, but such a scenario causes uncertainty as to the reliability of the setup, especially in an…

                                    Hello Jaco,

                                    I was looking back through ideas that have been submitted and if I’m understanding this request correctly there is already a way to accomplish this. MDaemon can store multiple activation codes but only needs one to be valid in order to start. This means you can store an activation code for both servers in the cluster. When MDaemon is started on one of the machines all activation codes are checked, as long as one is valid for that machine it will start. You are still restricted to having one server running at a time.

                                    Will this work for what you are trying to accomplish? If this will not work please help me to understand what additional functionality you need.

                                    Arron

                                  • Multicore MDSpamd

                                    Under heavy load, MDSpamd used only 100/#cores % of CPU, means it's unable to use more than one core per time (seen with Windows 2003 x64).
                                    It would be great, since internally works using a multithread architecture, that could take full advantage of a multicore environment.

                                    • Scheduled Upgrades (Please!)

                                      It's very annoying to have to wake late at night to perform a version upgrade.
                                      We don't want our server go down and have our users complaining all together.
                                      It would be great to have something similar to "windows automatic updates" service.

                                      • Extend the Auto Responder/Out of Office to allow for an "Every Day Between the Hours of X & Y" or similar

                                        We have had several users who work Part Time and want to enable an auto response, every day to kick in when they finish early for the day. (i.e. finish at 3pm instead of 5pm). Currently the Auto Responder has to be reset every day, instead of being left to "Auto" :)

                                        • MDaemon Cloud

                                          MDaemon Cloud.

                                          Ability to create MDaemon Cloud across multiple servers using an universal URL for WorldClient as following or similar one. And a universal Public Contacts as well.

                                          For example with four servers configuration when an incoming HTTP request arrive any one of the four server can reply however, for a user who doesn’t have a local mailbox, MDaemon will query other servers to discover the requested user account on one of them. If account is found, MDaemon will route the HTTP request to the server where the account is located.
