  1. File Activity

    I recently ran a file activity monitor on the server MDaemon is installed on. I have some concerns with the frequency and amount of data that is being read from some of the files over and over and over again. My suggestion is that you check this out so that it can be optimized. Right now it seems less than optimal.

    Here is one example:

    Domains.ini is being read thousands of times per second.

    I can see that these calls to disk are causing performance issues as the disk is busy doing unnecessary repetitive tasks of retrieving the same file…

  2. restricted login hours

    Per Account Control of Login Hours to comply with new laws regarding after hours work and pay. The goal is simply to prevent a user from login outside of their designated time. Employees arriving early or leaving late, or working after hours should be something that can be restricted per user in order to deal with hourly versus salary rules, etc.. This must work across SMTP, World Client, POP, IMAP, etc..

    Hello Tray,

    Thank you for sharing your idea to add the ability to restrict the ability to login after hours. MDaemon already includes this functionality. To restrict the hours an account can authenticate, go to Accounts / Groups & Templates. Create a new group and assign an account to the group. Then select the group you just created in the Tree on the left of the dialog. Check the box to enable Do Not Disturb and click the button for Define Do Not Disturb schedule to configure the schedule.

    If you’d like further assistance configuring Do Not Disturb, please contact our support team directly. All of our support options are available at http://www.altn.com/support.

    Thanks,

  3. Whitelist toplevel domains

    Any emails we get from top level domains such as .xyz or .biz.ua they are always spam. Sometimes the spam filter score is high enough to catch them, but otherwise they get through.

    I would like to be able to whitelist top level domains such as uk, com, uk.com and .net and set a spam score high enough on all other top level domains to ensure that they go straight to spam or we could have the option to just simply drop the emails! This will depend on whether we actually get any legitimate emails from other top level domains.…

    Hello,

    Thank you for your suggestion. There are a couple different ways this can already be done in MDaemon. You can create a spamassassin rule to add points to any message that does not come from one of the original 7 tlds. Another option would be to use host screening to block all of the new tlds. Here is an example of a spamassassin rule that was written by a user and shared with the community.

    I added an exclusion for the two letter country code domains as well. You can remove the _MY_DOTCC header line and remove the term from the sum in the meta line to remove it. The country code portion passes any two letter code, even if it is not valid.

    Here is the rule you can add to local.cf. Score as you feel appropriate.

    1. check for the original 7 top-level domains
    2. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains#Original_top-level_domains
      header __MY_DOTCOM…
  4. Email address copying from the subject field

    Under LookOut theme's Inbox, in case you want to copy an email address from the subject/header of the email from the message preview board, it's not possible, because a multiple selection box appears with both side of clicks. Alignment does not work, so you have to click on "Compose email' first to be able to copy from the addressee field.

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. We do not currently offer a means of breaking the email up into small pieces, this would require clients to also support this functionality, however, we do offer a feature called Attachment linking that I believe will accomplish what you are looking for. Attachment linking can be used to remove large attachments from emails and replace them with a link that can be used to download the attachment. If you’d like assistance configuring attachment linking, please contact our support team directly. All of our support options are available at http://www.altn.com/support/.

    Thanks,

  7. Auth failure notification

    When a user makes too many failed login attempts their IP gets blacklisted, which is good. But there isn't any kind of notification to the user why they're blacklisted which causes user frustration. This behavior is true with WorldClient and other email clients.

    For WorldClient (webmail) I propose a feedback notification, such as "Too many failed login attempts. Please try again in 10 minutes." based on the current MDaemon Auth Failure Tracking settings.

    Could this also happen for the ActiveSync and desktop clients, too? There have been many occasions where a user calls me to complain they can't connect their…

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. The current version of MDaemon allows you to send a notification to the user when their account auth failure count reaches a certain level. Ideally this would happen before their IP address actually gets blocked.

    Adding further notifications that are accessible to the public would be dangerous. It would provide attackers with information they could use to defeat the system.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Thank you for your suggestion to implement DMARC forwarding. Messages automatically forwarded to users on external domains should be able to pass DMARC as long as your SPF record allows the server doing the forwarding to send email for your domain and you have the option enabled for “Use local address in SMTP envelope when forwarding messages”, which is found under Security / Security Settings / Sender Authentication / SPF Verification. If the message has been DKIM signed, it should also pass after forwarding unless something was altered in the message to break the signature.

    If you’d like further assistance with this issue, please contact our support team directly. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support.

    Thanks,

  9. Server Settings Ports for WCXMPP Server

    List ports that need to be allowed through firewall, even if they are not configurable.
    Example World Client XMPP Server, Ports 7070 and 7443 need to be open in windows firewall so World Client doesn't get an error after login about instant messaging not being able to connect.

  10. allow sorting of messages quarantined by "Reason" & message selection issue

    allow sorting of messages quarantined by "Reason". Also, when selecting All messages on a "page" of those quarantined, even when I Just did a Refresh, I will find that at least one additional message than I selected will be added to the Blacklist, etc. I have over 99500 entries in my Blacklist. Tracking down the one that MIGHT be one we need to allow through is difficult, at best. I do a lot of Blacklist by Domain. So sometimes a Domain we NEED to receive from gets Blacklisted accidentally. Is there a way to make the system ONLY blacklist messages…

    Hello,

    Thank you for requesting improvements to the sorting functionality and for reporting that extra addresses are being added to the blacklist. Unfortunately, I have not been able to replicate the behavior that you are describing. Please contact our technical support team so that we can investigate further.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your suggestion to make it easier to see the category of an item. There is a category column that can be added to your list view for messages, tasks, and notes to show the category selected for an item.

    To add this column to the message list go to Options / Columns, and check the box next to categories for the desired item types.

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

  12. Postausgang erweitern um die Möglichkeit, an Smarthost zu senden und nur bei Problemem direkt an Empfänger

    Unserem Mailsrever ist ein Gateway vorgeschaltet für Encryption/Decryption. Dieses Gateway wird auf der Ausgangsseite als Smarthost angesteuert. Für den Fall, dass das Gateway ausfällt, sollte der MD-Postausgang automatisch auf Direktversand umschalten. Konfigurieren lässt sich bisher aber nur der umgekehrte Fall: Ausgang zunächt direkt, bei Problemen via Smarthost. Lässt sich da was machen?

    Hello,

    This is possible in the current version of MDaemon. Go to Setup / Server Settings / Delivery, check the box for Treat default smarthost as a domain name and deliver to its MX hosts. Then create 2 MX records in the MXCache.dat file, one for the primary smart host to deliver to and one for the second smart host. Make sure to set the priority correctly on the records. Then restart MDaemon. If you’d like further assistance configuring this, please contact our support team. All of our support options are available at http://www.altn.com/support/

  13. Append text to message body

    Hello,

    Would be good if we can append text into the body of the message, for example, a warning for external emails. So the end users can be warned about attachments and links into the emails.

  14. Allow administrators to create Saved Searches for all users

    Could you add an option to allow administrators to create Unread email and flagged email saved searches for all users to effectively replicate the smart inbox concept that many email programs use.

    In addition, the admin will need to be able to enable Saved Searches and auto cancel save searches for all users in Worldclient as they are off by default.

    The problem with expecting users to create these saved search filters for themselves is many users will not know how to do it (and may do it incorrectly by selecting subfolders instead of all folders) and if they are…

  16. protect mailboxes with a username with is not the email address to avoid accounts being frozon

    Many accounts are attacked by hackers and are frozen.
    Source IP addresses are so multiple that dynamic screen is not enought.
    We blacklist IP's on the FIRST offense, for as long as one month on the third offence.
    Accounts are frozen only after 24 bad authentications.

    But …. this is not enought.

    Il the usernames was something different than the emails, account would not be frozen.

  17. Manage folder sharing in OC centrally from MD

    In the OC, there is a folder sharing, which should be used instead of forwarding the mails in the absence.
    If you select the folder that the authorized person enters, you can select 4 preset profiles (guest, user, advanced user, administrator) below, as well as include the hooks for subfolders.
    This should be done as default by MD.

  18. Exception list for Attachment Filters

    This feature is broken.

    How:
    When it looks at the "From:" email, if the domain STARTS with a domain in the "except from" option in the attachment exception filter it is still allowed in EVEN though it should NOT be.

    Example:

    domain1.com is in the exception list for attachment filter.
    domain2.com: ATTACHMENT REMOVED
    domain1.com.uk: ATTACHMENT ALLOWED

    Just a suggestion - the backend code should be:

    if (fromDomain == exceptionDomain)

    NOT

    if (fromDomain.Contains(exceptionDomain))

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us to notify the postmaster when the remote queue contains more than X messages. MDaemon publishes performance counters that can be used to check the number of messages in the remote queue. Most network monitoring tools allow you access to Windows performance counters and can be used to notify the postmaster.
