    • 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.

          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

        • 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.

          • 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

              • Intergrade abuseipdb

                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

                • Dynamic Screening - Tracking the device who triggers the login failures

                  Dynamic Screening - Tracking the device who triggers the login failures.
                  It would be helpfull if a name from a device added to the log. So troubleshooting of logon failures would be much easier.

                    Hello,

                    Thank you for your suggestion to include client information. Can you provide additional details about what you would like to see added to the log? Which name would you like to see added to the log? Is this for a specific protocol or all protocols? Which log would you like the information added to?

                    Thanks,
                    Arron

                  • 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

                          • 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"

                            • 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.

                              • Provide MDaemon and SecurityGateway Amazon Machine Images

                                When running MDaemon or SecurityGateway within the Amazon Cloud it would be preferable to be able to choose a preconfigured Amazon Machine Image (AMI) from the Amazon MarketPlace.

                                There are 1000's of software vendors that provide their software in this way and would help promote MDaemon and SecurityGateway products by simplifying the process to deploy a server in the cloud.

                                These images would have to be reconfigured using a test domain, so an added feature would be the option to run a setup wizard after the software is installed to re-configure the main settings.

                                • Improved Control of DMARC Reporting

                                  I would like some additional control and ways to monitor the DMARC reports which are sent out. I would like to be able to selectively stop reporting to certain recipients, and would also like to see what reports are going out in a summary form.

                                  The problem that this addresses is that I have a domain to which I am sending a report which has stopped accepting the report, so I am generating failed emails that need to be cleared up manually. I Don't see any way to stop this at the moment!

                                  • Mailing List From: Address

                                    Please consider allowing configuration option to force Mailing Lists to use list email as "From" address. Some ISPs are blocking email from a mailing list user to themselves.

                                      Hello Mark,

                                      Thank you for sharing your logs with us. It is unfortunate that the ISP is blocking these messages as they are constructed according to the RFCs for generating email. The From header should be the address of the original author of the message.

                                      We will investigate the impact of changing this behavior for mailing lists and consider it for future versions.

                                      In the mean time, I believe you can do this yourself using the content filter with a rule such as the following:

                                      RuleName=Change From header of list messages
                                      Enable=Yes
                                      ThisRuleCondition=All
                                      ProcessQueue=REMOTE
                                      Condition01=X-MDMailing-List|contains|AND|testlist@test.com|
                                      Action01=remove header|“From”,""
                                      Action02=add header|“From”,“$HEADER:X-MDMailing-List$”

                                      You’ll also need to make sure that you disable the option in MDaemon under Setup / Mailing list manager / Mailing List settings for “Apply content & spam filters to list mail before cracking individual copies.”

                                      If you would like additional assistance to set…

                                    • Block Javascript attachments by default

                                      I blocked this attachment after one of my clients got hit with the cryptolocker virus abut 2 year ago and since then it has blocked several more emails with this attachment.

                                      I would recommend making this default as I cannot really see any valid reason for the vast majority of users to have the ability to receive emails with js attachments.

                                      • Mailing List Manager add users

                                        When you add new users to an existing mailing list, the default view is to show all domains expanded and none of the users that are already members of that mailing list are selected.

                                        Could you change this so that all domains are minimised so that you only have to expand the domain you are interested in and secondly could it show the existing users that are already members. This makes it easier to see if someone has been missed.

                                        • Autoresponder - multiple message based on time of day

                                          I have a client with a sales@ email account for incoming enquiries, they would like an autoresoponder message for day time when they are open and a different message for evening time. This would allow them to comply with Brand standards.
