  1. Configure if let domain administrators at WebAdmin change the established domain purging policy

    Our policy is not to permit messages older than 60 days. But we have some special domains that have other configurations (different days or even no time restriction). Domain administrators have access to alter the pruning settings which makes enforcement difficult.

    If we could restrict access to the quota settings in WebAdmin so that domain administrators couldn't edit them it would make enforcement much easier.

    • Outlook Plug-in or Method to Send to SpamLearn and NonSpamLearn

      Need an Outlook Plug-in or some easy method for users to send spam that has reached their inbox to send messages to the provided SpamLearn@ address. Likewise there needs to be an easy method to use the NonSpamLearn@. As another user posted, there is no option to flag these on the quaratine views. What is particularly disturbing is that there is no documented procedure for users to flag delivered messages as spam that I can see.

      • Ability to purge the OutlookConnector database using a script

        Currently the OutlookConnector database can be compacted using SQLLite, however there is no automated way to purge old mail from the database.

          • Add support for virtual folders, available via WorldClient, IMAP, OC, API

            At present, clients accessing the object base managed by MDaemon, can only see and are offered real and actual folders existing on the file system of the server. Add the ability to define virtual folders. There could be two kind of virtual folders: (A) those provided by MDaemon itself (say, the union of two or more real folders of the same type: messages, calendars, contacts etc.), and (B) those provided by plug-in libraries developed by ISV.

            Since MDaemon 13.0, with the introduction of generic file folders, a useful virtual folder would be a union of folders of different default tipe,…

            • Acknowledgement Message

              As you may know, Mdaemon has the Read Confirmation and Delivery Confirmation. However, these features may not be affective if the users decide to click on "Cancel" or not even click on the broadcast email that you send to them.

              If you want your users to read a very important message or announcement, the only way that you can do is to force them to read it. Therefore, Acknowledgement Message is the way to go.

              Right after a users log in to his/her email account, the whole WorldClient email interface will be replaced by a small windows that contains the…

                • Reminders pop-up in WC

                  At present there is no way to view overdue reminders in WC. It would be great if there was a pop-up like Outlook - or even a hyperlink in the WC ribbon that showed the number of overdue reminders. Clicking the link would take you to the list.

                  • Download Bar Shows the currently processed file.

                    Currently when you install Outlook onto an new machine for a user that already has an account, the Download bar becomes very active as it downloads through Outlook Connector all the headers and information etc. Sometimes this process can get stuck on an email or Calendar file, but there is no way to know which item is causing the problem. If the Download Bar could display the current item which it's trying to download into Outlook, we might have a fighting chance to delete or inspect that file as to why it's causing everything to hang. Thanks!

                    • Add email "opened" tracking gif function to WorldClient

                      Add email "opened" tracking gif function to WorldClient. Something like what CritSend and other smtp relay services provide. A column in WorldClient could show the status of the message to see if it was opened by the recipient. I believe they are doing this via a hidden gif that is embedded in the email and tracked when accessed on the mailserver. Would be great for people using mdaemon for mailing lists but also good for day to day usage.

                      • Option/support to use memory, instead of disk; for anti-spam, Cfilter, and WorldClient

                        Under heavy volume (especially a 50% spam rate), CFilter and MSpamD's normal behavior may slow down drive access. Also, WebDaemon becomes erratic and unusable during periods of high volume: this partly from the fact it too uses the HDD for temporary files. The only option to alleviate any of this involves use of a RAMdrive: which I am currently testing, but pretty sure most admins would be uncomfortable with. Whatever can be done in memory, that would not compromise operations; should be supported by default. This would also help SSD users avoid unnecessary drive writes as well: since files/data that…

                          Hello Michael,

                          Thank you for sharing your idea with us. Without knowing more about your setup I can’t say for sure but you may be able to improve performance by altering your configurations and/or optimizing the hardware that MDaemon uses. MDaemon is very I/O intensive but solid state drives are usually only necessary in very large installations. We have some recommended hardware specifications available by user size at http://www.altn.com/Products/MDaemon-Email-Server-Windows/System-Requirements/. Alternatively our technical support team would be happy to try to help optimize your server. If you are interested you can find all of our support options at http://www.altn.com/Support/. With all of that being said, thank you for your suggestion to optimize the message processing by making better use of the available RAM. We will consider this for future versions of MDaemon.

                          Arron

                            • Calendar Synchronization between servers

                              I know a few have requested systems involving the Calendar, but may I also add this idea..

                              It would be nice to have a Calendar system that I can synchronise between MDaemon Servers. We operate two sites and require a system where everybody can access the same corporate calendar system, which is proving difficult to sync through present methods.

                              Many thanks!

                              • Different session time out settings for World Client depending on IP Address

                                Different session time out settings for World Client depending on if it is being accessed from the LAN or from a remote session.

                                When connecting remotely security is critical, as users could be connecting from any device, in any environment.

                                On the LAN security is not as critical, and there is a known environment, and users more likely to lock their computers when they leave them.

                                Allowing different session time out settings for LAN, VPN and 'other' would help remove the inconvenience of repeatedly entering passwords to use world client on the LAN, but still allow a short time out…

                                • reverse lookup report

                                  Reverse Lookup Report.

                                  for some case, sometimes there is good email without an ptr record. it make us always get complain from our user, and we must do whitelist from that email.

                                  sound it's simple but, mostly our email partner didnt have a ptr record, and it make us very busy to find out rejected email on our server.

                                  we hope mdaemon can make a report to identify rejected mail from reverse lookup.

                                  • Backup during upgrade

                                    During an upgrade, like to 14.0.1, the auto backup that runs during the install only backs up the App and Spamassassin folders.
                                    However, depending on what is upgraded during the install of the new software, you may need other folders to roll back to the previous version, if an issue is found, such as Worldclient and Webadmin. Otherwise you need to either manually back these up prior to install or get them back from an alternative backup source.
                                    Would it be possible to add this functionality to the system to ensure the ability to swiftly and cleanly roll back if…

                                    • Embed LibreOffice Online to edit uploaded documents in Documentes folders without downloading them locally

                                      With MDaemon 13.0 new feature for sharing generic files using WorldClient (Document folders) comes the need to possibly edit those very documents when you have no local storage to download them. Therefore it would be nice, when it will be available, to embed a free, but rich and powerful office document editing suite like LibreOffice, which is announced to be available with a HTML5 frontend at some date in 2013.

                                      • Clustering and SQL Server

                                        Add support for clustering on SG, and also the ability to use SQL Server as a database. This will resolve the single-point-of-failure issue with the product, and hopefully help improve performance when dealing with a very large DB.

                                        • create MSI's of OC with personnalized parameters on mdaemon side

                                          It would be great if we can create msi oc files; with specifics parameters we would like to keep or enter;

                                          ex: unchecked download headers, parameters for database purge etc...

                                          Actually It's painfull to modify them, it would be better to make msi withmy own parameters

                                          Maybe it could be possible into mdaemon server side, after setup the OC.exe, to have a windows with parameters available, and a button to create the personnalized msi oc file.

                                          thanks
