  1. 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.

    • WorldClient Filters - Complex Rules

      Need the ability to make complex rules for sorting e-mail messages. In particular combining criteria with boolean operators (AND, OR) when filtering a message. I'd say if we can have similar functionality to what is available in the Content Filter.

      Specific use cases are that I have users that are filtering messages into IMAP folders using their IMAP Client, but they also use WC. Their IMAP Clients are turned off when they're travelling, and it doesn't make for easy e-mail management on the go.

      Thanks!

      • Show mailing list members in Outlook / OC

        We make use of different organizational units, each with their own mailing list. It would be nice to check the members of a mailing list in Outlook before you post a message. Or add a feature on the OC ribbon to check mailing list members.

          • 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.

            • Apply filters to existing messages

              After creating a filter have a Run Filter function (at least for the Inbox) to filter messages that pre-date the filter creation date.

              • Geoblocking of allowed SMTP/POP/IMAP.

                I would like to see functionality to allow geoblocking of allowed SMTP/POP/IMAP.

                Basically possibility to set which countries IPs that is allowed to connect with authenticated sessions for SMTP / POP / IMAP.

                As my users is only living and working in Sweden they will only be
                coming from IPs from Sweden.

                This could remove 98% of all the botnet sessions that tries to bruteforce autheticated sessions.

                Best regards

                  Hello Dan,

                  Thank you for sharing your idea to block IPs by country. Inbound SMTP sessions can be blocked based on country using the DNS-BL system in the current version of MDaemon. You just need to setup countries.nerd.dk as a DNS BL host. Adding similar functionality for POP and IMAP sessions will be considered for future versions.

                  Thanks,
                  Arron

                  MailStore search integration - at least a quick link to MS Web search in header and ability to open attached EML's it returns when messages are restored. Ideally an integrated search bar.

                  • 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…

                    • High-Quality Colour Faxing

                      It would be very useful to be able to send colour faxes/emails.

                      The restriction of having only black and white when the results can be emailed using the OCR system could do with overcoming to advance the software. Our emails to customers essentially look like faxes which does reduce the impact somewhat.

                      Also, If the server down-scaled the file to send a fax, it would allow much better quality to be sent. We are currently restricted to sending using fax quality as the OCR, High Quality and fax option do not work well together causing unreadable faxes.

                      Thanks, Mike

                      • Ability to copy object

                        It would be good, if there is an Copy button in Account Manager, Groups & Templates, and Mailing List, so i can use the previous record and do a little modification instead do repeat all step from the beginning.

                          I don't believe this exists. I would like to be able to automate the process that if an IP has been blocked by dynamic screening x amount of times in the past, it is automatically moved into IP screen, marked as refuse connection and notification sent.

                            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.

                            External response will not contain that information.

                                • Reposition Email Signatures on Reply and Forward

                                  MDaemon Signatures do not appear to be signatures as we come to appreciate in Outlook Emails, but rather a message Disclaimer. It would be nice to have the ability to position the signature after a senders message content added as a message reply or message forward. MDaemon currently adds the signatures to the very bottom of the message content of replied and forwarded messages. This doesn't look very professional when all the signatures appear to be grouped at the bottom of the message. It looks confusing. As a side note, users on mobiles devices with ActiveSync should have their mobile…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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,
                                        Arron
