  1. 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.
     
    DNS caching could be limited to say 10 minutes, so within 10 minutes or less after…

      Hello,

      Thank you everyone for submitting and supporting this idea. We will consider this for future versions of MDaemon.

      In case anyone is interested we have published a whitepaper on a system we setup here in an acitve/passive cluster. While it does not accomplish everything requested it does provide redundancy.

      Thanks,

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • Search inside Subfolders in MDaemon

                In Worldclient, Search only possible in Only one directory & if you want search for one e-mail or somethig else, you can't search in other Subfolders .
                This feature is very important & i think that, missed from W.C. too.

                • Worldclient Public Calendar

                  It might be useful to have a "Calendar Only" account (no email or options) that we could create a link to put on a website that goes right to a calendar. Some companies may have calendars they post on their websites for events or whatever. I have non-profits that could use this type of feature.

                  For example: a senior center maintains an activities calender in Mdaemon but then has to jump through hoops to get it to their website. If I could create a link on their website to open "Read Only" calendar, that would be awesome.

                  Thanks,

                  Greg Keehfuss …

                    • Add Graphical Statistical Add-on for MDaemon

                      I wish there was an Add-on for MDaemon that can Analyze the MDaemon Logs & give Administrator, Statistical information about E-mails like:

                      1. Number of E-mail from/to a Box/Domain or Domains .
                      2. Size of E-mails from/to a Box/Domain or Domains .
                      3. Information regarding to Protocols ( Imap/Smtp/Pop3 ) .
                      4. Statistics about How a E-mail Box worked by Send/Rec. E-mails .
                      5. Latest information about Time/Date of Users E-mails .

                      I think that, if Alt-n prepare this Add-on, it will be better than others 3'th Party Companies.

                        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.

                          It would be nice to be able to manage the permissions for sending on behalf of.
                          Each user should be able to decide who can send on its behalf and who is not. With a management similar to that relating to permissions shared folders.
                          Now every user can send on behalf of everyone and in my opinion is not correct

                            Hello Alessandro,

                            Thanks you for sharing your idea. It will be considered for future versions of MDaemon. Currently, you can require users to send email using their email address by enabling the SMTP Authentication options for “Authentication is always required when mail is from local accounts” and “Authentication credentials must match those of the email sender”, however, with these options enabled there is not a way to allow one user to send on behalf of another user.

                            Thanks,
                            Arron

                                I have been testing MDaemon & other email server software in order to put them into production in our office.

                                MDaemon has two ways of sharing emails : Public folders & shared folders with their own ACLs. In public folders the flags can be either per user or shared flags with other users. If the flags are shared with other users, then the Read, Unread, Replied, Forwarded, etc. all status are shared with other users, this way one can know which emails have been replied or forwarded. However if the Public Folders are configured with Per User IMAP flag settings,…

                                    Allow multiple users to login to the same WorldClient account at the same time. Currently only one person can be logged into the account at a time.

                                      Hello,

                                      It is not currently possible to have multiple users logged into the same WorldClient account at the same time. I’ll add this to our list of features to consider for future versions.

                                      There are a couple of alternatives that may help you. First you could use IMAP to access the account. When using IMAP multiple people can be logged into the same account at the same time. Another option would be to configure messages sent to IT@example.com to be delivered to a public folder which can be accessed by multiple users. If you’d like help setting this up please contact our support department. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support/.

                                      Thanks again for submitting your idea.

                                      Arron

                                        • Retrieve setup information from ActiveDirectory

                                          The manual installation of the OC is very expensive in larger environments (50-100 users).

                                          Will there be a solution for this in the future?
                                          User information from the AD?
