  2. Content Filter - Compose group name from variable

    When creating a content filter, it would be good to be able to compose the name of a group from variables. Currently, i can't e.g. use 'If the SENDER' is a member of "x1.$FILTERRULENAME$"... to declare a group based on the filtername (or other variable), which limits automation on certain occasions.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the additional information. The first issue I see is that the content filter does not currently support searching multiple groups for the sender. If that were supported, you could use a rule similar to the following to archive messages being sent out by employees.

    RuleName=Purchasing
    Enable=Yes
    ThisRuleCondition=Any
    ProcessQueue=BOTH
    Condition01=$SENDER$|group member|OR|CMP1Group|CMP2Group|CMP3Group
    Action01=copy to dir|“e:\Archive\$DOMAIN\$MAILBOX$\Purchasing\”

    We will look into supporting the searching of multiple groups for future versions.

    In the current version there are archiving options in MDaemon that may help, although, they may not provide the granularity you are looking for. The options can be found at Setup / Server Settings / Archiving.

    If you would like further assistance configuring this please contact our support team. All of our support options can be found at www.altn.com/support.

    Thanks,
    Arron

  3. Hard Links for Copies

    In our company, we use readonly public folders for departmental in/out mails, and read/write for custom archiving. As practically all mails get archived at least once, this leads to lots of wasted space.
    So, suggestion:
    When possible (folders on same drive), add support for and give the option to enable "create hard links for copied files". This would not only reduce space, but will probably also increase performance, due to fewer actual data = more unique content cached.

    Hello,

    Thanks again for your suggestion. I just realized I was not understanding your request correctly. Since you are allowing all SMTP traffic you would like to add IPs to the block list that attempt to authenticate. None of the clients should even attempt to authenticate since we are removing AUTH from the list of possible commands, however, it is possible for a client to ignore this and try to authenticate anyway. Your request to add the IP of these clients to the Dynamic Screening black list will be considered for future versions.

    Thanks again for your suggestion and my apologies for not catching on quicker.

  5. Prevent SmartHost to be used right after the first try (graylisting)

    We are using "Send directly and use smart host on problems."

    As soon as graylisting is involved this immediately enforces the smart host to be used while it should not.

    An option to specify the amount of unsuccessful direct connections (before the fallback to the smart host is used) should be added.

  7. Mdaemon Desktop Instant Messenger modernise GUI Interface

    The gui interface of desktop instant messenger looks dated.

    Could you replace the icons for text colour, spelling, send file etc with a more modern look and also make the main window showing the contacts look modern. The small font and very dated green and red icons make it look very old fashioned.

  8. Stop making the Help screen modal!

    When you open Help from MDaemon, it opens as Modal, so is always in front of MDaemon. This makes it a real pain to try to read help and change some settings at the same time. It isn't too bad if you have twin screens, but I have to work on a single-screen server and use half of the screen for MDaemon and half for help so they don't overlap. I can't think of a single benefit of having the Help modal. Please stop doing it.

    P.S. Why does the box I'm typing this into have to be the size…

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Can you tell me how you are opening the help dialog? Are you using the MDaemon User Interface or MDaemon Remote Administration, MDaemon Webmail? Or something else? What version of MDaemon do you have installed?I have been unable to figure out how to reproduce what you are seeing.

    Thanks,
    Arron

  9. reminder

    Allow for multiple reminders for a Calendar Item. Currently it appears that WorldClient and the CalDAV implementation only allows one reminder. But when using Mac Calendar App or adding an event through CalDAV on an iPhone, you can add additional reminder times, but they are not synced with the server.

  10. MDaemon filtering feature request

    We’d like the ability to be able to watch an email working it’s way through the various filters, building up score as it goes.

    Graphically we’d like it to look like the mousetrap game / Rube Goldberg machine.

    Any email scoring highly enough to be classed as SP@M should disappear down a plughole of some sort and be accompanied by the ‘pacman dying’ sound effect.

    By the end of the month would be nice - yes please! 👍

  11. Whitelisting specifc attachments from specific senders

    I have moved to whitelisting attachments. What would be useful is to add to the exceptions attachments handling is the ability to whitelist say .zip files from a specific sender instead of just simply whitelisting sender which allows all attachments including dangerous virus attachments. While we trust the sender, obviously they may get infected with a virus and then infect us if the AV does not pick it up. Thank you.

  12. Saved Search Show unread count

    Show a message count for how many unread or flagged emails are in each Saved Search Folder. All other folders show a message count of unread emails so would be consistent and many people like seeing a number. As these two folders will be used the most it makes sense to have a message count.

  13. Determining the effectiveness of applying a security setting

    The following security settings would be a good example here.

    Close connection if no PTR exists
    Close connection if no PTR Match
    Outbreak Protection
    Spambot Detection

    I used to have Spambot Detection enabled but I disabled it a few months back because it appeared to me that the only emails being affected by this were legitimate senders.

    I currently have both PTR checks above enabled. We have had a few legitimate senders affected by this.

    I also have Outbreak Protection enabled

    However there is no easy way for me to list all senders (domains) that were affected by security setting…

  14. Add option to 'soft fail' on Reverse Lookup (PTR) failure

    At present the options for action on PTR lookup failure are to close the connection - a hard fail.
    As others have observed this causes a lot of unhappy customers because emails from legitimate senders fail to be received, yet it also stops a lot of spam emails so it is a desirable test to have turned on (in my opinion).

    Please consider the option for a soft fail on PTR lookup failure.

    For example I would prefer the option to increment the spam score against emails that fail rather than closing the connection outright.

  15. Outbreak Protection Options

    Currently there are three options:

    Viruses, Spam and IWF Content which can either be blocked in real time or accepted for filtering.

    I would like to make this four options and have a separate option for bulk spam so I can set this for filtering whilst all the others are blocked in real time. The reason being is that I have not had a single legitimate email being dropped under spam, IWF or Viruses but I have had quite a few legitimate emails being dropped under bulk spam. Thank you.

  17. Location Screening authentication block list vs smtp block list

    Currently I use Location Screening to block a number of countries, which blocks both smtp connections and authentication connections.

    I would like the ability to block all countries outside our country for authentication connections whilst only blocking smtp connections for some countries. None of my clients travel, so blocking all countries (bar the one we live in) for authentication would really improve protection against foreign hackers attempting to compromise our email accounts.

    Would it be possible to have two location screening lists - one for authentication and one for smtp connections?

  18. Sync Email Categories

    I use Em client as my Email client on both my computer and laptop. I have asked Em Client about this and they say this is a server side issue. When I flag an email and categorise it, only the flag is synced. The category is not synced with the server. So I have to manually add the Category in Webmail or on the second machine running Em client.

    I am using Imap to send and receive emails. Could you make it possible for Mdaemon to support syncing categories via imap. Thank you.

  19. location screening smtp filter

    Currently with location screening, any countries in the blacklist, the emails are simply dropped. In the main this has worked well with blocking 90% of the countries that we never expect to receive emails from and I think has really helped with malware.

    However, once every few months, we miss an email that is sent by a helpdesk system or CRM system which for some reason is located in a country in the blacklist even though the supplier we are dealing with is not located in that country and their usual emails come through another system. I suspect that we…

  20. Can you please provide a button to open the current log

    the Logs in the mdaemon window only hold the last couple of lines of activity. older activity is written to logs.

    i do have to look something up that happened just a bit before. the log-dir, howerver, has a lot of files. it would be very nice to be able to e.g. right-click a logs tab and find a command that would open the current file for this log in e.g. notpad.
