  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.

          • 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.

            • Send on Behalf Of with Permission Management

              Hello,
              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

                • Per user read/unread status

                  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,…

                    • Ability to schedule "Forwarding" Just like "Autorespond"

                      When you create an "Out of Office" Auto responder, you can schedule it to launch during a set window. A lot of times, our employees go on vacation and will have their emails give an Auto response but also we forward a copy of the incoming email to a different user. Just in case it happens to be an order or some important info that needs to be had.
                      Currently the Auto responder has the ability to be scheduled, but the Forwarding does not have this option. It would be nice if this could be implemented.

                      • It would be nice to have support for Thunderbird's tags in Mdaemon's IMAP server.

                        Thunderbird writes its tags data in a .msf file if the IMAP server it is connected to does not support Thunderbird style tags; It would be nice if Mdaemon could support Thunderbird's tags.

                            • Overhaul signature system

                              Implement a fully functional Corporate signature system:
                              1. Allows a full set of macros to be used so that a fully dynamic signature can be built rather than having to rely on on a mixture of both Outlook and MDaemon. Things like $FirstName$, $LatsName$, $JobTitle$, $PhoneNumber$, $Department$
                              2. Allow macros to pull in Active Directory user data.
                              3. Build in ability to position signature at the end of your reply rather than bunching them all up at the end of a long message thread... it looks very unprofessional!
                              4. Perhaps in conjuction with the Outlook NewMail/Reply feature, use the CF…

                              • Winmail.dat / RTF / TNEF decipher by Mdaemon

                                Mdaemon should decipher winmail.dat attachments, RTF or TNEF emails sent from outlook users or exchange servers.

                                Asking the sender to change their settings to send html or plain text is not optimal in a business environment.

                                  • Please add "Remove option for Domain Signature duplication".

                                    If any email forwarded by the user the mdaemon duplicate the domain's signature as number of times email forwarded. Please resolve this issue or provide a way to I do this manually or from content filter. Sorry for bad English.

                                    • Account Pruning

                                      Ability to exclude pruning of certain IMAP folders. Would like to be able to inform users to create certain folders and save email in those folders that would never be pruned. Right now we can prune inbox and/or all IMAP folders. If we don't choose IMAP folders even the send items folder would not be pruned.

                                      • Centrally managed RSS feed

                                        Last Outlook versions have RSS feed support.

                                        An enterprise RSS feed managed would be an interesting feature for MDaemon. An administrator can manage RSS feed for all users or groups, letting them to add personal ones and eventually block deletion of inherit ones.

                                        • Have the option to have users that can only send SMTP mail from local IP Addresses

                                          Much like the option that a user can only connect to IMAP from local IP Addresses, this would help stop accounts being attacked and will help protect your MDaemon server from anyone that finds out a users password Only mobile users would need to be able to send from outside known addresses.
