      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.

      Arron

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Track the # of Graylisted connections

              Graylisting is a great way to help stem the flood of spam when used properly. I believe it would be beneficial for reporting and/or monitoring purposes to be able to have a statistical count available over time. I would be great to review this on the Remote Admin Reports pages, possibly viewed as Email Count Graylisted and Email Count Successful.

              • 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…

                • Ability to batch import PST files into users mailboxes

                  Customers migrating from other Mail platforms often have a set of per user PST files they wish to migrate over to MDaemon. Currently the method of migrating this information involves each user setting up a new Outlook connector profile, Mounting the PST and moving the data over manually.

                  This works but is long winded for multiple users. It would be great if this migration could happen at the server. For example. you could have a migration tool that matches PST files (named to match MDaemon user accounts) and runs through the process of importing the data within the PST file…

                  • 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,

                      I wish there was an Add-on for MDaemon that can Analyze the MDaemon Logs & give Administrator, Statistical information about E-mails like:

                      1. Number of E-mail from/to a Box/Domain or Domains .
                      2. Size of E-mails from/to a Box/Domain or Domains .
                      3. Information regarding to Protocols ( Imap/Smtp/Pop3 ) .
                      4. Statistics about How a E-mail Box worked by Send/Rec. E-mails .
                      5. Latest information about Time/Date of Users E-mails .

                      I think that, if Alt-n prepare this Add-on, it will be better than others 3'th Party Companies.

                        Abuseipdb https://www.abuseipdb.com/ has an free api to check ip's and Report ip's who are abusive

                        I find it a very reliable source and as mdaemon postmasters, we could help reporting abusive ip's (automaticly after more than x unsuccesfull authentications from one ip) thus using the mechanism mdaemon already uses to block ip's

                        • Directly deny accepting emails containing certaines attachments (e.g. iso) already at reception instead of using CF to avoid archving issues

                          Close connection when receiving files with certain (configurable) attachement types (for example ISO-files) instead of first accepting the mail and then passing it through Content Filter to delete/quarantine the mail in the second step. This has the advantage that a mail that has never been accepted does not need to be archived (in combination with saving bandwidth/cpu/disk space,...) and probably it would be easy to implement.

                                  • Enhancement to inactive accounts when never accessed

                                    I am suggesting an enhancement to the current Inactive accounts option. If an account is created but never accessed, it never becomes active and the counter for inactivity never begins. Those accounts then remain enabled and increase the attack surface.

                                    I would like to propose that the Inactive check look at the last accessed date, and if blank, looks at the created date, and then applies the action using the same value as set for Inactive, disabling and notifying of any accounts disabled as a result of this.

                                    Regards,
                                    Tim

                                    • Better warning when unable to reach altn-servers for licensing

                                      You get an unclear warning from MDaemon if it can't reach the altn-servers to check the license. It basically just say that the system will shutdown in 7 days. In the log you can see what the problem is, but not what is going to happen. The GUI doesn't tell you anything. A 7 days warning is really bad during summer vacation. There should be a lot more days and a better explanation in the mail.

                                        • Web link to unsubscribe mailing lists

                                          Could not find this feature request (and I'm surprised of this)
                                          AFAIK as of today the only way we have for unsubscribing a MDaemon mailing list is with a email reply.
                                          This is a very old fashion way to manage unsubscriptions and it's not practical at all.

                                          Can we have a web based system to manage this? That is: a web link is provided in the email and the recipient simply click this to open the usual web page we all know to click "unsubscribe"
