  1. Host screening option to reject inbound EHLO based on criteria

    In the light of recent botnet attacks it's become extremely useful to be able to block within the host screen using wildcards to prevent machines that are clearly compromised systems. Blocking via reverse dns checking helps someway but not in all cases and ideally if communication comes from a EHLO address that is not following RFC guidance of the dns name for the server in question then it should be rejected.

    What I'm asking for in addition to this is the option to be able to enter criteria within the blocking option such as 'if the EHLO is without a…

    Hello Graham,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. Wildcards are supported in the host screening configuration. The difficulty is that email clients don’t use a FQDN when they are sending email. This means that if you were to block any EHLO value that did not include a “.” you would block all email clients that are trying to send mail through your server. This may work for you but it will cause problems for some. This is not to say that your idea is not valid, just that care should be taken. Your suggestion will be considered for future versions.

    It is currently possible to block EHLO values that do not contain a “.”. To do this add an entry for . that is set to accept. Then add a second entry for * that is set to block. The entry to accept . must be above the…

  2. Smart Folder for Worldclient

    In Em Client which I use as my email program, I have the ability to setup a smart folder view for Drafts, Unread Email and Flagged Items.

    Worldclient already has the ability to view drafts folder so thats ok. However having a folder for unread email and a folder for Flagged Items (that show categories) would drastically improve the usage of Worldclient.

    If you look at Em Client website and Screenshots you will see their layout of Unread Emails and Flagged Emails. I cannot tell you how much my email management has improved by having these two folders. I consider…

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for your idea to add a Smart Folder to WorldClient. This is already possible using the Saved Searches Functionality. If you want saved searches to show up in your folder list, you’ll need to enable it under Options / Folders. Then simply save the searches based on your criteria.

    Thanks again,

    Arron

  3. Blacklist to stop email addresses from being added to a mailing list auto responder

    it would be great if we could blacklist email addresses from being added to a mailing list when a auto responder is enabled

  5. Allow the installation of the Email storage directory to another drive

    When installing Mdaemon the mail store default to the same drive where Mdaemon is installed and this is very limiting. It would be very interesting if you are allowed to store mails on a separate drive either on the native disk or on a network share.

    Waht do you think?

    Hello,

    The current version of MDaemon is capable of storing email on a separate drive. To configure the default location for mailboxes in MDaemon 13.0.4 go to Accounts / Account Settings. Expand the New Account Defaults section and select Mailbox. In the Mail folder template field enter the path where you would like mailboxes stored. This path will be used as a template for all new mailboxes that are created so it is important to use variables such as $DOMAIN$ and $MAILBOX$ to ensure that each mailbox is unique. If you would like to change the path of existing mailboxes you can do so by going to Accounts / Account Manager. Select an Account and click on Edit. Select Folder, Attachments, Groups from the left menu and in the Mail folder field enter the path you would like the account to use for the mailbox. After…

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Make it possible to block complete countries via "shielding".

    Make it possible to block complete countries via " IP shielding". 90 % off the world I or my customers don`t want to receive "mail" from. Some countries are really known for their hacking teams and some countries are known for spam. Blocking complete countries secures my email server much more than using blacklists. Also it reliefs mdaemon from pllowing through all the spam etc.

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us.

    If you only want to block inbound SMTP sessions you can use a DNSBL such as http://countries.nerd.dk to block connections by country.

    To block all inbound connections from specific countries you can import htaccess or APF files that include the IP allocations for each country and importing them into MDaemon’s IP Screening list. These files are available online and can be found with your favorite search engine.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

  9. Allow 2nd tab or pop out window in webadmin

    If you want to change settings and also examine the logs you have to jump from one menu/item to another meaning that you cannot quickly check the MD logs.
    So say I spot in the log that an email matched one of the CF rules, well I have to either download the log file and open it locally (bit of a pain) or I have to close the log and go to Security >> CF rules to see what the rule in question does.

  13. Anti-spam option

    It might be useful to be able to automatically whitelist messages based on a specific subject, regardless the sender. e.g. when rectruiting, we ask people to put the job's title in the subject but many yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc. addresses end up in the spam trap folder. It would ensure that the applications, in our case but it might be useful in other situations, would be delivered and not lost.

    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,
    Arron

  15. Emails from blacklist address which arrive by Multipop go to Bad Queue instead of being deleted

    When a message from a email address in blacklist user folder arrives to Mdaemon by Multipop, the message go to the Bad queue. But if the message arrives to Mdaemon by SMTP, the message is deleted. I think the message should be deleted also when it arrives via Multipop

  17. Compatibility with memotoo.com

    Memotoo.com could be used to sync calendar and contats between Mac computers and Mdaemon server. In teory it is posible to sync memotoo with active sync and SyncMl servers, but it is not posible with Mdaemon. Then you could syn ical and adress book mac OSX with memotoo.com.

  18. Some Improvement in Dynamic Screening Logs

    The improved Dynamic screening with v17.5 is great. One lack is that the IP addresses for SMTP, WC and AS authentications from any external access only show as the internal address of the firewall. IMAP authentications show the actual remote address correctly!

    Would it be possible to have all the protocols show the true external addresses? That is much more informative for security analytics!

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea to have Autoresponders support HTML.

    The current autoresponder in MDaemon does support HTML. Users will need to manually create the HTML and set the correct content type for the message. A sample is provided in the html-sample.rsp file which can be found in the MDaemon\app directory.

    Thanks,

  20. 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))
