  1. Spoofed email

    Sometimes happen to receive spoofed email, it could be very useful implement in wordclient alongside the sender a label (like gmail) where there is wrote by the remote server of the sender...I hope I was clear :)

    • SMTP File check

      Sometimes happen to receive an attachment with a virus that is not detected, could be useful for all files that arrive, get the hash, and if the file is infected, move it in quarantine and block all the new incoming file.

      • MDaemon should be able to log account creation, deletion and password change when performed via the product GUI

        I think that MDaemon should be able to log all the changes made to its accounts, not only those made via remote admin.

        • Monitor services from webadmin

          In webadmin, we can't monitor smtp/pop3/imap service, it would be nice if we can start/stop smtp/pop3/imap service from webadmin

              Hello,

              Thank you for the additional information, we will consider adding a button to save a message to disk for future versions. In case it helps anyone, this can already be done with the current version by copying the source of the email from within SG and pasting it into a TXT file using notepad or any other text editor.

              Thanks,
              Arron

            • Allow authentication against an LDAP directory without full integration

              Allow MDaemon to authenticate users against an LDAP directory (by performing an LDAP bind, optionally using a proxy user first).

              We don't want to and we can't let MDaemon write to our directory. Therefore it would be great if we created the user we could just say "for authentication go look at ldap server ldap.domain.com and try to authenticate there". The rest of the configuration is local in MDaemon. (We want to integrate with our LDAP, not assimilate it from MDaemon).

                Hello,

                Thank you for sharing your idea with us to allow MDaemon to authenticate to an LDAP database. If you’re LDAP database happens to be Active Directory you can already do this.

                Your request to allow MDaemon to authenticate with other 3rd party LDAP databases will be considered for future versions.

                Thanks,

              • control whether aliases can be used to log-in

                We have some aliases that are never used to log-in, authenticate, or send e-mail. But, we see hack attempts that try to authenticate using those aliases. I would like to see a per-user control that allows/disallows authentication by aliases.

                • OC: set how many days of emails to download

                  On large email accounts it would be helpful so set a number of days of emails to download (i.e. emails of last 30days), instead of processing the complete folder.

                  • Widen the usage of groups

                    I see MDaemon has a basic concept (of groups and templates). Now it would be really nice if you could actually use these groups outside of the administration interface (e.g. for people to use).

                    Like saying: I want to send a mail to all people of that department (no need to define a mailing list, which would be redundant, if groups are used properly). Or: I want to invite that group of people to a meeting (calendar).

                    Alternatives are welcome, like creating mailing lists which take their users from LDAP. I see this might be possible, however it is not…

                      Hello,

                      Thanks again for sharing your ideas with us. In the current version of MDaemon you can configure a list to have a Group as a member. Does that accomplish what you are trying to do?

                      To add a Group as a member of a list you can click the Add button on the members tab and then click the bottom to the right of the Email field. Then select the desired groups and click OK. You can also just type GROUP:$GROUPNAME$ in the Email field, where $GROUPNAME$ is the name of the group.

                      Thanks,
                      Arron

                    • Cache IMs when offline

                      IMs are not delivered when the user is offline. That is really retro. They should be cached for a certain amount of time and delivered to the user when they are back online.

                      • folder blacklist automation

                        Wouldn't it be great to have a folder like the bayesian public folder for each user (either personally or global) which acts like this:
                        1. move an e-mail to the folder
                        2. block the sender's domain instead of the user's e-mail address only

                        For this we should also have a list of blocked domains or user addresses to manage.

                        • Alias statistics i MDaemon.

                          Statistics and "Last Usage" on main account name is already included but it is very difficult to track how frequent a user Alias is actually used and/or receiving any mails.

                          People tend to want alias created but very seldom used and it would be good for me as a sysadmin to track the usage and possible remove unused aliases.

                          Or even better, find alias that receives large amount of spam.

                          Today all alias traffic is merged into the main account statistics and it is difficult to see if certain addresses catches more spam than others.

                          - In the "Inbound Email"…

                            The global option for the incoming email "reject message greater then many KB" should have an option to add some exceptions.
                            For example the users that belong to the special group "Admin" shouldn't have limit for the size of incoming email.

                            • 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!

                                    • Statistics Event Notification

                                      It would be very helpful if the statistics manager can send notifications when a specific statistic has reached a predefined value. For instance, if the Dynamic Screening statistic reaches 2000 hits for today, I would like to get a notification. Currently I only know that I have suffered an attack after the event.

                                        Hi Charl,

                                        Thanks for following up with the additional information. You are correct, inbound sessions blocked by dynamic screening are not included in the inbound session count. Sorry for the bad information. Adding dynamic screening, host screening and ip screening information to the performance counters will be considered for future versions.

                                        Thanks,
                                        Arron

                                        It would really be beneficial to us in a school environment to be able to create a contacts list based on Group Membership.

                                        Below is an email thread with our UK support.

                                        Is it possible to create another public address book called "Students" that will automatically be populated with the members of the "Students" Group and then I could make this readable ONLY by the Teachers group, as I don't want the students accessing the email addresses of all the other students.

                                        I can see the benefit of being able to export an MDaemon Group to a Contacts Folder (especially…

                                        • Auto Respons function, Separate response messages depending on whether it is a local or external account

                                          In Exchange, you can choose two different auto reply messages depending on whether the sender is a local account on the mail server (colleagues) or if the sender is external.

                                          Very useful when you are on vacation you might want to inform your colleagues about how to manage internal affairs during the absence, you can inform about the times they can call even though you have holiday etc.

                                          External response will not contain that information.

                                          You may also be able to develop this great feature even better than Exchange, so you can choose which domains alternatively specific people who will…
