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.
ActiveSync/WebAccess Gateway for DMZ
For security purposes, it would be very convenient to have a separate server in DMZ that act as an ActiveSync and WebAccess respectively WorldClient-Gateway for external users with mobile devices etc. In this case, we don't need to enable direct https-access to the internal MDaemon server with its mailbox data. In addition, the gateway server shouldn't have file access to the data on the MDaemon server, instead the communication between the two servers could handled over https.
Thank you for submitting your idea, it will be considered for future versions.
Definitely, it is very important! My security auditors always advice to split Web/ActiveSync access and email server.

In Addition the separate WorldClient Server machine furthermore should implements the ActiveSync functionality. Then we can place this machine in a DMZ to serve external clients (WebAccess or SmartPhones). This would be a huge security improvement.
Isnt this the case already with seperate IIS server?

You could use the extended IMAP4rev1 client you already developed for Outlook Connector to connect the remote instance of WorldClient to the MDaemon server.
