MDaemon Release Notes v11.0.0 (2010.03.10)

MDaemon Server v11.X Release Notes

Alt-N would like to recognize and celebrate the life and contributions of a unique and talented individual without whom our achievements would have been incomplete at best and a whole lot less fun. Linda Cleminshaw 1964-2009 -- you will be greatly missed.

MDaemon 11.0.0 - March 10, 2010


1. MDaemon's POP and IMAP servers now require use of the full email address as login by default. If user's mail clients are configured to only use the mailbox value as login they will not be able to log into MDaemon with their POP/IMAP client until they change their mail client configuration to use full email address as login. If you wish to continue to allow mailbox only logins then you can disable a switch in Ctrl+O | System "POP/IMAP servers require full email address for authentication" (strongly NOT recommended as mailbox only logins are ambiguous when MDaemon is serving multiple domains).

2. Attachment Linking has undergone a complete overhaul and its configuration has been reset to defaults as a result. See the section ATTACHMENT LINKING for details. All accounts previously subject to Attachment Linking in previous versions will now be setup to extract attachments to the FILES folder. So, you may need to manually reconfigure accounts that you want using Attachment Linking. Sorry, this could not be helped.

3. Updated WorldClient.dll to dynamically generate the robots.txt file in the WorldClient HTML directory to be explicit about which files should not be indexed unless the WorldClient.ini has the following in place: ModifyRobotsTxt=No under the [WebServer] section. Alternatively if the robots.txt file is read-only it will not be touched. Custom Logon.html files need to have the following meta tag inserted into their headers: <meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW">

4. The Globe and Redline themes within WorldClient have been discontinued and are no longer being supported. Running MDaemon 11 for the first time will move the \Templates\ and \HTML\ folders for these two themes to \WorldClient\Old\. They can be safely deleted if you decide not to manually maintain these themes yourself.

5. DKIM-record-check at http://dkimcore.org/tools/dkimrecordcheck.html is a tool for checking your DKIM DNS setup for compliance with the DKIM specification as published in RFC 4871. Given a selector and a domain this tool will retrieve the DKIM key record from DNS, parse it using the BNF from the DKIM specification, and then sanity check the various fields. In the end you'll get a good / bad result letting you know whether your DKIM DNS setup is "to spec" or not. Note, this site is a work in progress and is not hosted or created by Alt-N.

6. The default options for quota calculations have been reset. Check Ctrl+U|Quotas to make sure they are as you desire. The default for including Inbox sub-folders when calculating quotas has been changed from FALSE to TRUE.

7. As part of it's BlackBerry Internet Service integration (see below) MDaemon now requires all IMAP/POP sessions from BlackBerry users to use a full email address as IMAP and/or POP login when configuring their BlackBerry device to collect mail. This is necessary in order to achieve the level of integration we are shooting for. This might mean that some of your existing users will no longer be able to collect mail on their BlackBerry. This problem is solved by deleting and recreating the email profile on the BlackBerry device (see "How to get your MDaemon account setup for BlackBerry push mail" below) and being certain to use full email address when configuring the username/login parameter.

8. MDaemon's installation process now performs a one-time collection of basic customer information.



Users of BlackBerry's BIS service can integrate their MDaemon mail account with their BlackBerry device allowing for BlackBerry push mail as well as improved email handling when using a BlackBerry with MDaemon. BIS integration options can be configured via a new selection from the Setup menu (Alt+B). Any BlackBerry device setup to pull mail via IMAP from MDaemon can be setup for push mail and (very cool) will also have messages composed on the device sent to your MDaemon for delivery rather than having the BIS servers deliver the mail themselves. This allows your BlackBerry composed emails to comply with your own security policies, content-filter rules, DKIM, archiving, etc.

Also, a new UI screen within the account editor and WorldClient will allow users to select one or more mail folders. When the BIS service connects to MDaemon to collect Inbox mail MDaemon will serve up the content of these selected folders as well (root inbox folder content is always sent and so doesn't need to be selected). All the messages from all the selected folders will appear within the single Inbox folder on the BlackBerry device. The messages are not actually moved into Inbox on MDaemon and folders are not created on the BlackBerry. Rather, selected folder content is sent to the BlackBerry as if it were part of the Inbox folder.

Finally, an internal folder aliasing scheme aliases your Sent and Deleted folders (no matter what they are actually called) to values which BIS recognizes. This will help insure that sent and deleted messages are placed into the proper MDaemon folders.

How to get your MDaemon account setup for BlackBerry push mail:

  1. Go into the BIS configuration options (Alt+B).
  2. Enable the feature and make sure that the Subscribe URL is pointing to your WorldClient and the SMTP server value is pointing to your MDaemon SMTP server. All these values should be setup and working with the defaults that you find there. Remember that the Subscribe URL should point to your WorldClient server which needs to be accessible to the outside world.
  3. If your BlackBerry is already collecting mail from your MDaemon account this means that you have already configured your BlackBerry with an email profile for your MDaemon account. This email profile must be deleted (recreating the email profile is necessary in order to trigger push mail setup within BIS). Click here for instructions on how to setup an email profile on your BlackBerry.
  4. If your BlackBerry is not setup to collect mail from your MDaemon account use your BlackBerry device to create an email profile to do so.
  5. Some time after this the Subscribe URL associated with the domain the user belongs to will receive what's called a SUBSCRIBE request from the BIS service. This will be handled by WorldClient. The process usually takes 5 minutes.
  6. Once the SUBSCRIBE request is properly received and processed the user's BlackBerry will be subscribed for push mail and the user will receive an email on his BlackBerrry telling him so.

Unsubscribing from push mail can be done by deleting the email profile using the BlackBerry device itself. BIS will then send MDaemon an UNSUBSCRIBE request and the account will be unlinked. The UNSUBSCRIBE request may take some time to arrive and this poses no operational issues.

While waiting for the SUBSCRIBE request from BIS to arrive, any changes to email profile settings (such as signature text, advanced setup options, etc) will invalidate the request and you will not receive it. So, make no further changes to the email profile settings until the SUBSCRIBE request arrives or you will have to start over with the SUBSCRIBE process.

BIS activity (connections from BIS IMAP clients as well as requests and notifications sent to/from MDaemon and the BIS network) are logged into a new tab and log file called "BIS" which you will find in the "Mail" section of the main UI.

When BIS integration is disabled globally or for particular domains any accounts already subscribed to BIS will continue to operate as before. These switches will disable any additional BlackBerry device integration, however existing integrations are unaffected.

This level of integration is not possible using POP. Any of your BlackBerry users currently using POP to collect mail will need to delete their email profile and recreate it using IMAP (not POP) which may require accessing advanced setup options on the BlackBerry (see "How to get your MDaemon account setup for BlackBerry push mail" above). MDaemon's IMAP server must be running for this feature to work. It does not (and can not) work with POP.

MDaemon now requires all IMAP/POP sessions from BlackBerry BIS users to use a full email address as IMAP and/or POP login when configuring their BlackBerry device to collect mail. This is necessary in order to achieve the level of integration we are shooting for. This might mean that some of your existing users will no longer be able to collect mail on their BlackBerry until they delete and recreate their email profile on the BlackBerry device (see "How to get your MDaemon account setup for BlackBerry push mail" above) or at least update their BlacKBerry mail configuration settings to use full email address as login.


The BIS SMTP client does not currently support SSL/STARTTLS with self-signed certificates. So, if you use STARTTLS or check the "Use SSL port" next to the SMTP server in the new BIS UI and you are using self-signed certificates then all SMTP sessions from BIS will either error out or get "stuck" until the inactivity timeout is reached. This is solved by purchase and use of a commercial SSL certificate.

The BIS IMAP client does support SSL with self-signed certificates. So, if you check the "Use SSL port" next to the "Domain name" in the new BIS UI you can get IMAP SSL using the dedicated IMAP SSL port with any certificate you have. The BIS IMAP client does not currently support STARTTLS so it is not possible to get SSL except on the dedicated IMAP SSL port.


Added support for Funambol version 8.0 open source SyncML clients. These clients are available at no cost, and are greatly improved from earlier versions. In particular, the BlackBerry client shows promise over other solutions.

Over the air installation from the device's browser:

A new switch was added to MDaemon's F2->Delivery screen. The switch enables smarter message routing and is enabled by default. With this switch enabled MDaemon will maintain single copies of messages destined for multiple recipients and use multiple RCPT commands to deliver the message whenever possible. This saves on your disk space and bandwidth. For example, if enabled, this option will always operate whenever there is a single message addressed to multiple recipients at the same domain. Also, if you are using the delivery option which sends all your outbound mail to a single designated IP/domain/host, MDaemon will store a single copy of each message and will use multiple RCPT commands even when recipients belong to different domains.

[4235] ATTACHMENT LINKING (MDaemon PRO only)

Attachment Linking is a feature whereby attachments are removed from email messages and stored locally on the MDaemon server. In place of the actual attachment, MDaemon will insert a URL which the user can click on to retrieve the attachement(s) as needed. This saves bandwidth and storage space on the client machine and especially on mobile devices.

All existing Attachment Linking config settings are no good and have been reset to defaults (which is automatic mode -- see below --, with the system enabled, but with no accounts setup to use it).

The Attachment Linking feature has been completely overhauled in the hopes of making it more attractive and easier to use. First, the UI for it was moved from "Account Settings" to "Web, Sync, & IM" since WorldClient plays such a major role in Attachment Linking. Second, there are two modes now with Attachment Linking - automatic and manual. If you select automatic mode (the default) then the feature works using internal settings that users can not change. As long as WorldClient is running no config changes should be needed. Manual mode is for when you want to place attachments in custom locations. You can still use all the account macros (like $DOMAIN$ and $MAILBOX$ etc) to keep attachments segmented. In automatic mode MDaemon places attachments at \MDaemon\Attachments\$DOMAIN$\$MAILBOX$\. This can not be changed.

The Account editor UI has been updated and accounts can now be configured to:

  1. Leave attachments alone -- do nothing (the default).
  2. Pull attachments out and store them in the account's FILES folder. Note that this does not employ Attachment Linking so there are no URLs placed within messages when this option is used and MDaemon does not police the user's FILES folder. With this option attachments are simply extracted and the email receives a list of attachment names so that you can see what was pulled out but no URL links to them are provided.
  3. Pull out attachments, store them, and provide URL access to them according to Attachment Linking configuration.

If you enable Attachment Linking you must also configure accounts to use it by selecting option 3 above.

All accounts previously subject to Attachment Linking in previous versions will now be setup to extract attachments to the FILES folder. So, you may need to manually reconfigure accounts that you want using Attachment Linking. Sorry, this could not be helped.

Disabling Attachment Linking will no longer reset accounts configured to use Attachment Linking. They will remain configured to use Attachment Linking however with the system disabled this won't do anything anymore. The config settings are left alone in case you switch Attachment Linking back on (you won't have to reconfigure accounts this way).

Attachment Linking no longer inserts the full paths to any URL it generates and places into email messages. Instead a GUID is generated and this is used to map a URL to an actual file on disk. This GUID map is stored in the AttachmentLinking.dat file.

The Account Defaults UI has been updated to allow a default selection for how to handle attachments when creating new accounts.


DKIM ADSP (Author Domain Signing Practices) was finalized and released to the world as RFC 5617 (see http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5617).

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) defines a domain-level authentication framework for email to permit verification of the source and contents of messages. ADSP specifies an adjunct mechanism to aid in assessing messages that *do not* contain a DKIM signature for the domain used in the author's address (the FROM: header). ADSP defines a record that can advertise whether a domain signs its outgoing mail as well as how other hosts can access that record.

MDaemon was updated to support the final version of this specification. No changes to any existing DKIM or ADSP records are required.

This represents the close of 4+ years of effort in the IETF to get to this point. Alt-N strongly supports the use of this protocol as widely as possible and MDaemon is fully capable to do so. ADSP can be toggled using Ctrl+S->DKIM Options->"Unsigned/Improperly signed messages trigger ADSP processing." You should also consider publishing your own ADSP record in your DNS server so that others can know what your signing practices are (see http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5617 for details).


MDaemon's DomainPOP and MultiPOP servers support STLS. You can enable this via a global setting at Ctrl+S->SSL & TLS->MDaemon. STLS will be attempted but if the other side of the connection doesn't support it then a regular connection will be initiated. This feature honors the NoSTARTTLS.DAT file for excluding sites which might cause you problems.


  • [4841] MDaemon no longer automatically adds contacts to an account's default contacts folder. Instead, contacts are added to a new WhiteList contact folder which will be generated for the user as needed. The folder is available as an IMAP contact folder (using Outlook Connector or WorldClient). Both the default contact folder and this new white list contact folder will be used an spam filter white lists (assuming you have this feature enabled). The text at Ctrl+P | White List (automatic) and at Alt+F3 (Account Editor) | Options has been updated to reflect these changes. Also, new buttons are present on those two screens which will allow you to remove contacts from your default contact folder which have no name or phone number data. This may assist in removing "bogus" contacts added to your contact folder by MDaemon in the past. However, take care. Just because a contact has no name or phone data doesn't necessarily mean it's bogus.
  • [3153] MTA thread will log when a message is processed that has no recipients (such as a submission to a post-only mailing list). Messages with no recipient data will now be moved to bad queue by default. A new switch was added to Ctrl+Q to toggle this. When disabled, these messages are deleted as they have no recipient data.
  • [4397] Spam messages are no longer sent to mailing lists ever. Also, the ROUTING log (rather than the SMTP(out) log) will get updated when remote queue processing encounters spam messages or messages from unauthorized senders sent to mailing lists. These messages are deleted as invalid.
  • [4823] Added switch setting to spam filter to send the results of inline spam scans to the SMTP client so that they can see why their message was rejected and possibly correct the problem(s).
  • [4825] Exposed a number of new contact properties in WorldClient. Anniversary, Assistant Phone, Birthday, Company Phone, Business Phone 2, Car Phone, Home Phone 2, Other Phone, Other Address.
  • [4700] Added option to F2->Servers to close mail session after receiving too many RCPT commands.
  • [4701] Added option to F2->Servers to set a max number of RSET commands allowed in an SMTP session (default is 20) and an option to close the connection if this limit is reached (default is Yes). Also added an option to the Ctrl+S->Dynamic Screen for banning an IP that issues more than X RSET commands (default is 0 meaning disabled).
  • [4702] Added option to the Spam Filter Ctrl+P->Options which will close an SMTP session if an inline scan detects a spam message (default is enabled).
  • [4705] Changed 80_MDaemon_scores.cf to no longer override SA default scoring for SURBL lookups. If you want to return to Alt-N's old values for this you can edit 80_MDaemon_scores.cf and uncomment the SURBL score lines.
  • [4563] Several changes have been made to the feature which sends special commands to MDaemon@ to have things done.
    • Any email containing commands to MDaemon which require authentication must now be sent to MDaemon using SMTP AUTH. All other methods of authentication for these emails have been removed.
    • The following commands have been removed for various reasons: MAIL FORMATS / MAIL FORMAT / AUTODECODE / SUPPRESS / UNSUPPRESS / LIST / USERS / GETADDRESS.
    • The GetAddress@ special address has been removed.
    • The HELP.DAT, WELCOME.DAT, and ACCTINFO.DAT files have been replaced by NEWUSERHELP.DAT. The older files have been removed by the installer, however a copy was preserved by the installer in the backup folder if you need them.
    • NEWUSERHELP.DAT is in HTML format and includes references to online resources to help end-users and administrators (like KB articles, quick-start guides, etc).
  • [4945] The following improvements were made to WorldClient:
    • WorldClient's LookOut theme now has a summary page accessible from the User node in the folder tree or the WorldClient logo. This view will allow users to see what's going on at a glance. A checkbox at the bottom right hand corner of the view allows users to make it their default view when they log into the LookOut theme.
    • Searching is now enabled in all of the data views. You can now search Notes, Tasks and the Calendar for text strings.
    • WorldClient now allows all Desktop themes' data views with columns to be re-ordered or enabled/disabled. In Simple and Standard themes users can go to the Options | Columns options view. The LookOut theme's settings can be accessed in the grid view's context menu. Special consideration: The Contacts view will allow users to output a Phone column. This column will use the first phone number in the contact's information table in the following order: Business Phone, Home Phone, Home Mobile, Business phone 2, Home Phone 2
  • [2472] The Spam Traps feature has been renamed to Spam Honeypots. The UI has been updated in several places with this change. Also, several configuration file updates have been performed including updates to the cfsysrules.dat and cfilter.ini. Also, the SpamTraps.dat file has been renamed SpamHoneypots.dat. Finally, the SPAMTRAPS.SEM file has been replaced by SPAMHONEYPOTS.SEM. Also, the X-MDSpam-Trap header has been renamed to X-MDSpam-Honeypot.
  • [4602] The following settings have been reset to new defaults. These should work fine for you but if not you can change in Ctrl+O|GUI and Ctrl+Q|Retry Queue. These were changed: Number of accounts shown in GUI controls (changed from 250 to 0 to show all), Number of domains shown in GUI controls (changed from 50 to 0 to show all), If a message is undeliverable after X days then... (changed from 5 to 2 days).
  • [2300] Urgent Update emails are no longer considered valid by MDaemon based on the IP of the sending machine(s). Rather, urgent update emails now require a valid DKIM signature from altn.com. So, DKIM verification is required to continue to use the Urgent Update feature. Check your settings for this at Ctrl+S->DKIM Verification.
  • [2532] It is now possible to specify an arbitrary email address to use with the account restrictions feature. You are no longer limited to sending restricted messages to postmaster. Now you can specify any email address you want to use.
  • [2534] It is now possible to configure multiple drives to monitor for low or out of disk space conditions. Any one of these drives will trigger the low or out of disk space behavior. You can configure the drives to monitor using a new control in Ctrl+O->Disk.
  • [2467] The maximum SMTP inbound session limit has been changed to NOT include MSA sessions. Those sessions are counted separately now. You can setup a new limit for MSA sessions at F2->Sessions. MDaemon still considers MSA sessions as SMTP sessions everywhere except when policing session limits.
  • [4166] Minger now has it's own cache on/off switch rather than sharing the same one with LDAP. The new switch is on the Minger configuration UI (Ctrl+U->Minger).
  • [3426] The option "Hide account from calendar, 'Everyone' list, etc" has had its label changed to "Account is private (see Help for details)". This change was necessary because there wasn't enough room in the UI to list all the things this switch touches.
  • [3944] Added UI control for setting default outbound socket bind IP to Preferences->System.
  • [3867] WorldClient will now properly refuse messages sent to non-existent local users (it will follow your configuration settings instead of ignoring them). If you want WorldClient to always accept mail as in past versions you can add WorldClient's IP to the Trusted IP listing and allow trusted IPs to be exempt from local account validity checking (Ctrl+S).
  • [3863] Messages sent to noreply@ will not be immediately refused at the RCPT stage. Instead refusal will be deferred until the DATA command is received. This is so call-back verifiers will work with that address.
  • [2517] Account Manager will remember the selected account so that after an edit that account will still be selected.
  • [3671] In the past MDaemon would insert a VBR-Info header into outbound mail even if the md= domain did not match the domain in the From: header. Although no such association is required by the VBR specification, due to the way MDaemon does domain aliases this is now required by MDaemon. So, if you have an alias changing (for example) @domain1.com to @domain2.com you will need to configure VBR with the domain2.com domain.
  • [2713] When specifying a host for Domain Sharing you can append a colon + port value and when MDaemon sends mail to that server it will use the port you specified. Please don't confuse this with the Minger port over which the Minger lookups take place. The port value I'm talking about here is the port to which SMTP email will be sent once Domain Sharing determines this is appropriate. So, for example, rather than specify "build.altn.com" which implies a default port of 25 you could say "build.altn.com:2525" which means send mail to that host using port 2525.
  • [4311] WorldClient+SyncML log tabs have been moved to the root UI tab view under their own "WorldClient" root tab in the UI.
  • [4313] The Pocket-PC and Mobile tabs have been removed from the root Sessions tab in the UI. These type of sessions are WorldClient sessions and will show up there.
  • [4181] Moved "SMTP Authentication" UI from root "Security Settings" to "Sender Authentication" section of the dialog.
  • [4025] Added fnReloadFunc to plugin interface to reload plugin settings.
  • [4183] Changed "Certification" to "VBR Certification" in the UI, tab, and log file name. The future might hold various types of certification so to avoid confusion this label was changed.
  • [2409] Added a "Delete this selector" button to the DKIM signing UI. Take care to heed the on-screen instructions when you press this button.
  • [4208] Added switch to Preferences->Fixes which will cause MDaemon to accept and deliver a message even if there's a connection abort during or immediately after DATA. This should not be used under normal cicumstances as it can lead to duplicate messages.
  • [4228] "Web & SyncML Services" main menu selection was changed to "Web, Sync, and IM Services" in preparation for future changes.
  • [4145] WorldClient's configuration UI (Ctrl+W) has had ComAgent and IM related options moved from the Options sub-tab to a new ComAgent/IM sub-menu.
  • [4307] It is now possible to enter domain/host names into the reverse lookup white list file (previously only IP addresses worked). You can add things like "*@company.mail" or "*@*.altn.com" for example.
  • [4359] Authenticated sessions are now exempt from reverse PTR and HELO lookups by default (you may have to change your setting manually if this is not a first time install for you).
  • [4362] The Spam Filter UI has been re-organized and some of the control labels have been changed. I think it looks better now. Same for Account Editor (minor changes).
  • [4192] Added favicon.ico for WebAdmin.
  • [4421] Sub-Addressing now handles nested subfolders using a + char. For example, arvel+friends+arron@altn.com would try to route the message to \<root user folder>\friends.imap\arron.imap\.
  • [4429] AUTH credentials dialog box has been combined with the Mail Release dialog in MDaemon's UI.
  • [4528] The Servers tree at left in UI will change green icons to red for servers that are disabled/down.
  • [4432] Added an Apply button to MDaemon's various dialog boxes. However, this Apply button does not act exactly like other software. When you click it, all existing changes on the screen you are working with are saved like you would expect. However, the Apply button is never greyed out because MDaemon does not track individual control state changes. When your changes are applied you will know because MDaemon will popup a dialog to say so -- the button does not "grey out". You can switch off this popup dialog via a new "Show Apply button result" switch at Ctrl+O | GUI.
  • [4457] When the Minger server processes incoming queries it will now send the address through Domain Sharing verification if so configured. A new UI switch was added to the Domain Sharing UI for this. This behavior is enabled by default.
  • [4504] Added switch to Ctrl+O|System to force POP and IMAP servers to require a full email address during authentication. The switch is enabled by default.
  • [4456] Account UI start page changed disable button to an enable button (settings are preserved).
  • [4488] WebAdmin is now compatiable with the Opera browser. Opera Version 10.0 or greater is recommended.
  • [4510] MDaemon's MainWindow coordinates are stored in MDaemon.ini now rather than the registry.
  • [4169] Minor WebAdmin updates to match up with MDaemon's changes.
  • [3489] Read confirmations sent by WorldClient are translated.
  • [4545] Reworked the Quota settings UI screen to include the SERVERS UI "552" option and to reword some controls better.
  • [4546] Default for whether to include Inbox sub-folders when calculating quota usage has been changed from FALSE to TRUE.
  • [4557] Added "Edit attachment handling" to Account's WebConfig access settings.
  • [3119] Added option in WebAdmin to disable the ability for domain administrator to create users or mailing lists.
  • [2074] Added option to Ctrl+W|WorldClient->Options to specify a sentence of text (either plain or HTML text is fine) which will be output to users on WorldClient's login page. This could be used to direct users to your own help/contact info regarding logging into WorldClient.
  • [3346] WorldClient Mobile theme now uses iPhone CSS transitions to give the theme a more 'iPhone' like feel
  • [4634] Removed obsolete MDaemon utilities WCImport and Form2Raw
  • [4788] Added more descriptive SSL error message to SMTP and IMAP servers
  • [4771] SSL/TLS UI will save the Alternate Host Names field so that what you entered last time will be preserved.
  • [4776] Session transcripts will now include the local IP and port being connected to.
  • [4780] File menu will say "Close configuration session" rather than "Shutdown MDaemon" for configuration UI.
  • [4712] Slight text label change and reorder of options on F2 | Servers.
  • [4613] In WorldClient, moved the user dictionary word list to "Spell Check" section of the Compose Options page.
  • [4817] Attachment Linking was updated to handle messages without a separate body (the body is the attachment).
  • [4738] MDaemon, SecurityPlus, and Outlook Connector no longer self-generate trial keys. The trial key is now provisioned during the installation process for these products and is generated by the web site and emailed out while the install process waits.
  • [4849] Incoming SIZE= values > ULONG_MAX will be treated as ULONG_MAX (4,294,967,295 bytes). Also ULONG_MAX will be used for messages > ULONG_MAX bytes in length if outbound SIZE= is being used.
  • [4917] MD will keep files in inbound queue if local/remoteq disk errors detected. Also, a new option was also added to the disk space checking system. After a certain number of disk errors when processing the inbound queue MDaemon will shut down processing of the inbound queue until the situation has been resolved by somebody. An email is placed in the postmaster's mailbox when this shut down occurs.
  • [4934] You should no longer need to right-click and "run as administrator" when launching MDaemon on Windows 7 (and other flavors). Note that administrator rights are still required (as they always have been).
  • [4922] Installer will cause a spam filter update to occur assuming you have not disabled spam filter updates for some reason. A new sem file was added for this which you can use at any time: UPDATESA.SEM.
  • [4867] UI will no longer permit creation of IMAP filter redirect/forward rules which would setup a mail loop.
  • [4921] In WorldClient a new drag and drop control has been implemented that is lighter weight and more efficient.
  • [4913] The MDaemon installer now checks to make sure that any registration key you might enter is a valid MDaemon registration key.
  • [4296] MDaemon no longer sends bogus emails telling over-quota accounts that they couldn't send an email. Mail clients already handle these situations.
  • [4890] SpamAssassin docs no longer refer to a minimum spam score offset requirement for the auto learn ham/spam settings. Consequently, MDaemon no longer contains edit checks/error messages related to this. Also, MD has been updated with current SA defaults of 0.1 and 12.0 for these settings.
  • [2338] Added the ability to import and export contact information from a CSV file through the WorldClient interface. This import/export functionality can be accessed through the Options | Folders view.
  • [4992] Added an option to improve WorldClient login performance on sites with large Mail Archive public folders. When logging in, WorldClient will not look inside the Mail Archive folder to see if the user has permission to any of its subfolders if the user does not have permission to the root Mail Archive folder. To disable this, edit \MDaemon\WorldClient\Domains.ini and set [Default:UserDefaults] CheckPublicArchiveSubfolders=Yes
