Software Update: MDaemon 15.0.0

Alt-N Technologies has released version 15 of MDaemon. MDaemon is a mail server for the Windows platform, with built-in antivirus and antispam capabilities. In addition, calendars, and address and task lists can be shared, and senders can be validated by means of DomainKeys or Sender ID. An overview of all possibilities is on this page to find. In version 15 Among other things, we find support for IPv6, measures have been taken to prevent the stealing of account data and e-mails can be encrypted. The complete list of improvements is as follows:

IPv6 Support
MDaemon now supports IPv6. Some benefits of IPv6 include more efficient routing, simplified network configuration, and additional security. Outbound SMTP, POP, and IMAP connections over IPv6 will take precedence over IPv4 whenever possible. IPv6 addresses can be specified for each domain.

Improved User Interface (UI)
The user interface has been improved in several ways, including:

  • Updated ACL (Access Control List) editor for customizing access rights for public & shared folders.
  • The Gateways top-level menu has been relocated to the new Gateway Domain Manager found at Setup | Gateway Manager
  • The Lists top-level menu has been relocated to the new Mailing List Manager found at Setup | Mailing List Manager

Improved Account Hijack Detection
Account Hijack Detection helps prevent unauthorized access to an account when its logon credentials have been compromised. For MDaemon 15, Account Hijack Detection has been improved. Now, you can set different message and timing thresholds depending on the source IP of the incoming connection. You can also set separate limits for connections from reserved IPs, local domain IPs, and all other IPs.

Email Encryption
Customers wishing to send and receive email and attachments using encryption technology can enable this feature in the WorldClient theme of MDaemon’s web mail, WorldClient. Enabling the third-party feature from Virtru can be done within the “Compose” section of WorlClient’s “Options” settings. Once the service is established, it allows users to send and receive email and attachments between themselves and intended recipients. Click here to learn how to setup Email Encryption for MDaemon

64-Bit Support
MDaemon is now available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version of MDaemon can handle a higher number of active sessions before running out of memory. This is beneficial in high-traffic environments where many clients are accessing and sending email simultaneously.

Dynamic Screening Improvements
Dynamic Screening is a security feature that can block a connection from an IP if it connects too often in a given timeframe, or if a message contains too many invalid recipient addesses. A new Dynamic Screening option has been added which lets you prevent IPs from being blocked due to multiple POP or IMAP authentication failures if each of the failures uses the same password. This prevents a situation in which unattended devices get blocked due to not yet being configured with the new password.

Improved SSL Behavior
An option has been added that allows connections that fail SSL negotiation to retry connecting without SSL for up to one hour.

Remote Administration Session Management
Global administrators can now view a list of active sessions via Remote Administration. This allows administrators to see all current connection activity, including POP, IMAP, SMTP, ActiveSync, and WorldClient sessions. Sessions can also be selected and disconnected by the administrator.

Weak Password Report
New password controls allow administrators to maintain strong password policies, and to monitor weak password usage. Administrators can now generate and email a weak password report to any designated email address. The recipient of that report can then notify those users to change their passwords as needed.
