How can we improve?

Instalation of MDaemon opens relevant Windows Firewall rules automatically

It would be very useful if MDaemon configured the relevant Windows Firewall rules when installed. This is especially relevant on server O/S where by default the windows firewall blocks all incoming access.

This should be a simple case of running the netsh advfirewall commans e.g.

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="MDaemon SMTP IN" dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=25

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="MDaemon SMTP Out" dir=out action=allow protocol=TCP localport=25

If this could be done for all Running services and also rules were deleted and recreated if ports change for these services or updated it would make it much easier for new admins to get MDaemon up and running without having to think about the Windows Firewall.
