Year in Review

While speaking with many of you, it is clear that 2009 was a challenging year. Small and medium businesses around the globe were not immune to the impact the financial crisis delivered to the world's economies, as many organizations focused on survival. In addition, Malware creators began to shift focus and target small-to-medium businesses more than ever. Despite the down year, 2010 should begin to reveal signs of improvement. In fact, many analysts predict that 2010 should begin to show stronger signs of economic recovery.

As the economic conditions begin to improve, the New Year will also bring new feature enhancements to all of our products. You can expect to see improved mobile device compatibility along with enhanced webmail features in the MDaemon Email Server. Alt-N's security product portfolio (SecurityPlus for MDaemon, SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP Servers, and ProtectionPlus for SecurityGateway) will continue to incorporate the latest features to protect against Malware. And ongoing development to deliver enhanced Outlook compatibility for customers using Outlook Connector for MDaemon are just a few things planned for 2010.

Stay tuned and keep us informed on how your business is doing. Drop us a note at marketing@altn.com.
Diverse Mobile Device Use

Last month we asked readers to take our mobility survey and provide feedback on the mobile environments of their businesses. One interesting result was the type of device platforms preferred or used in our customers' environments.

Want to get your feedback counted? There is still time to take the survey and share your feedback.
Updated Mobile Device Setup Videos Now Available

Do you need wireless access to email, calendar, contacts, or tasks using your mobile device? MDaemon is loaded with mobility features so that regardless of platform you will have access to your important information wherever you are. We've recently updated our Mobile Device Page with short setup videos to make getting connected even easier.
Improve the Performance of Your MDaemon Mail Server

To improve MDaemon's performance, try making the following adjustments:
  •  Disable Debug logging. When Debug logging is enabled, more data is written to the logs.
     Much of this data is only needed for troubleshooting purposes, thus, performance may be improved
     by disabling this feature.
  •  Cache SMTP connection failures for a specified period of time. This prevents MDaemon from needlessly
     trying to reconnect to a non-responding server until a specific period of time has elapsed.
  •  Limit the number of maximum simultaneous connections to a single IP address.
  •  Limit the number of Maximum concurrent outbound SMTP sessions, and maximum outbound SMTP
     messages spooled per session.

These performance tips for MDaemon are detailed in this knowledge base article.

Additional performance tips:
  •  Configure your third-party antivirus software to omit scanning of the MDaemon directory.
     Third-party antivirus software can sometimes interfere with MDaemon's performance.
  •  Defragment the hard drive on the MDaemon server.
  •  Run Disk Cleanup regularly.
