  1. Only allow authenticated SMTP through MSA. Block AuthSMTP on port 25.

    Only allow authenticated SMTP through MSA. Block all SMTP Authentication Attempts on port 25.

    To prevent a lot of spoofed botnet authenticated SMTP hammering I would like an user option in MDaemon to completely disallow Authenticated SMTP sesssions through port 25 and only allow it through the MSA port. (admin configured on/off)

    Normal incoming (mailserver->mailserver) traffic is allowed as normal through port 25 but none that includes an attempt to authenticate.

    As an addition, an option in Dynamic Screening could be added to blacklist any attempts to send authenticated traffic through port 25.
    This could avoid further hammering from botnet…

  2. Allow more granular control of which files and from/to who are allowed to pass through anti-virus scanning.

    I would be great if we had more granular control over which attachments along with a combo of which senders/receivers/attachments, senders/attachments or receivers/attachments were allowed pass through the SecurityPlus AV engine.
    Maybe if there was some way to do a basic gateway scan on the email and if it has unscanable attachments then pass it to the CF filter where you could set up the granular rules to by-pass the AV scan depending on file extension, receiver, sender, etc...

    Hello Pat,

    Thank you for sharing your suggestion with us. This can already be done by selecting the option for “do nothing (use content filter to handle” when viruses are detected. This allows you to create content filter rules that are used to handle messages that are infected. Creating rules gives you the ability to check for attachments/senders/receivers, etc. You’ll need to make sure that you uncheck the option to refuse messages that are infected and at a minimum create a content filter to handle infected emails.

    Thanks,
    Arron

  3. Account Manager columns

    Some column in Account Manager should be inserted: % of space used, is email is forwarding, if exista an autoresponder, last time password was changed, quotas, message in spam/trash and so on...
    Choosing columns to show could be a great improvement

  4. Wildcard in MXCache.dat would be very useful.

    We would like to send everything but one domain to a smarthost. If we set the MXCache we can not use the smarthost anymore.
    Thus we have either to send everything directly out.
    We would prefer to state which domains are special and all the rest to the smarthost.

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea to allow wildcards in the MXCache.dat file. While wildcards are not supported in the MXCache.dat file, the desired behavior can be achieved by configuring a Gateway for the domain that you don’t want sent to the smart host. For example, if you want mail for test.com to be sent according to the DNS records for test.com then create a new gateway for test.com. On the Gateway Forwarding dialog check the box for Forward mail to this domain and enter test.com in the field. Then configure MDaemon to send all outbound mail to a smart host. If you’d like additional assistance setting this up, please contact our support team. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support.

    Thanks,
    Arron

  5. A way to track local Mails (with attachments), maybe Contentfilterrulesconditions!?

    We need a possibility to monitor mails wich are sended internal (same domain). We want to track mail wich are used to send attachments to other employees.
    So we are able to force them to use our documentsystem and not to blow up our mailsystem. But we need this without generally limit the attachment size (globally).

    Maybe we can implement a contentfiltercondition to track "internal-only" mails!? This could be usefull for other rules.

    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting your idea. The content filter can already be used to do this. Create a rule that checks the from header for a local address, the X-MDaemon-Deliver-To header for a local address and then checks to see if the message size is greater than X. Then configure the appropriate actions. Another option would be to use outbound attachment linking which would remove the attachment from the email and replace it with an HTML link.

    If you’d like help configuring either of these please contact our technical support team. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support/.

  7. multi serveur SMTP

    Avoir la possibilité que MDAEMON envoi les emails via une batterie d'autres serveurs SMTP que lui même, avec la mise en place d'une rotation lors de l'envoi. Cela limiterai les problèmes de black-list lorsque le serveur essayer d'envoyer plus de N email vers un service d'email qui n'en accepte pas plus de 3 par seconde. Ce qui devient courant.

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your request to have MDaemon send email via multiple SMTP servers. This is already possible using the option to deliver outbound messages to a smart host. Simply enter a domain name in the field for the smart host and configure MX records for that domain to point to all the servers you would like MDaemon to try to send to. If you would like further assistance configuring this please contact our technical support team. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support/.

  9. Import ICS file and share to all as a public calendar

    Import ICS file and share to all mailboxes as a public calendar, making sure the calendar is live and if changes are made to the internet calendar the updated changes are sent to the MDeamon calendar to reflect.

    Exactly like live calendar subscriptions in outlook etc...

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea with us. MDaemon is already capable of removing attachments from messages. To configure this go to Security / Content Filter / Attachments. Add any attachments that you would like to be removed from messages to the list for “Restrict these attachments”. During processing, any attachments that match the names specified will be removed from emails.

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

  14. Content filtering - indicate the line of the file that was matched by the rules

    Hello, I use the content filtering system to filter mails received.

    When an email is blocked through this system we have for example the following message: Message matched rule: Filtering_rules

    Would it be possible in a future update to indicate the line that blocked the message.

    example: Message matched rule: Filtering_rules - Line 2563

  15. Look into compressed RAR files for restricted attachments

    MDamon protects very well from threats looking into zip files for restricted attachments. But what happens when virus come into a rar file? RAR compressed format now a days is as popular as ZIP.
    Please add RAR format compatibility

  16. Read receipt

    Mailer Daemon should be set up to require for all message the "read receipt".

    It's very boring ask every time.

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your idea to always require a read receipt. Responding to a read receipt is a function of the email client. WorldClient can be configured to always send a read receipt when one is requested by going to Options, Personalize, and setting the option for Send Read Confirmations to Yes. If you want all of the emails you send to request read receipts you can use the content filter in MDaemon to add X-Confirm-Reading-To and Disposition-Notification-To headers to your email with the value set to your email address.

    Thanks,
    Arron

  17. Include account information in WorldClient Dynamic Screening email

    Include account information in the WorldClient dynamic screening email that is sent so the administrator can tell which user is having an issue.

  18. 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.

  19. CF - Restricted attachments - give us some options

    Hi guys
    At the very least I'd like to have the option on the CF screen so that if an attachment is restricted I can quarantine the entire message and attachment.

    Or, even better, have the if the attachment is restricted, add a specific header to the message and then run those messages through the CF engine so you have more granular control over what you want to do with the message and/or attachment(s)

    Hello Pat,

    Thank you for submitting your idea to allow more granular control of attachment restrictions. If I’m understanding correctly this can already be done by creating a rule using the “If the message has a file called” condition. If you would like assistance creating a rule please contact our technical support team. All of our support options can be found at http://www.altn.com/support/.

  20. Display tree view of public folders

    The folder listing for the public folders is currently in one flat list, both in the Server UI and Web Admin, which makes managing hundreds of folders difficult. This should be displayed in a tree list, like it is in World Client, so that folders can be collapsed.

    Also, increase the size of the folder listing box in the server UI when expanding the "Default Domain & Server" configuration form. At the moment, the form expands, but the folders list box stays very small. {The ACL settings panel, and the bottom of the folders list should track the bottom of…
