Data Leakage Concerns?

A recent Osterman Research report reveals that 31% of IT decision makers in the small- to medium-sized business space are concerned or extremely concerned about the potential for leakage of sensitive information through approved channels like email. Another Osterman study revealed that 43% of US companies had investigated a suspected email leak of confidential or proprietary information in the past 12 months. Are you using an email gateway (email spam firewall) to protect your company?

An email gateway (spam firewall) is one of the best ways to keep malicious and unsolicited email from reaching your end user’s inboxes. But what about your outbound emails?

SecurityGateway for Exchange and SMTP Servers is designed to protect both inbound and outbound mail. Its layered security design protects businesses against incoming and outgoing email abuse by denying spammers, thieves, and hackers a single point-of-failure to exploit, while ensuring the accurate delivery of legitimate email and minimizing the potential of false positives.

Combining over a decade of email security expertise with proven security technologies, SecurityGateway protects message traffic from malicious attacks, message tampering, and email address identity theft for organizations using Microsoft Exchange® and other SMTP email servers. It offers flexible protection with simple, easy to-use settings for trouble-free administration. Learn more about SecurityGateway, or get started today with a 30-day free trial.
SecurityPlus for MDaemon
MDaemon 11 Supports BlackBerry and Other Mobile Devices

The recently released MDaemon Email Server for Windows 11 (see updated point release below) is packed full of new and enhanced features covering its mail server, webmail client, and most other aspects of the product. One of the biggest new features of MDaemon is its enhanced BlackBerry device manageability, which quickly and easily connects BlackBerry users to company email while using Research In Motion’s (RIM) Internet-enabled BlackBerry enterprise data plan.

If you use another brand of mobile device MDaemon most likely supports that as well. With features ranging from email, to calendar and contact syncing, for most mobile devices, our mobile device page will get you connected.

Email Archiving Utility for MDaemon

Marco Archiver, LLC, a spinoff company of decision:DIGITAL Inc, a 13+year experienced Alt-N Technologies' partner, is proud to announce the release of MARCO, the first automatic email archiving system designed to work exclusively with the MDaemon Email Server.
SecurityPlus for MDaemon
MARCO, an acronym for Mail ARChiving and Offloading, is a lightweight server-level email archiving system that is controlled via a simple admin console and user-facing Web interface. MARCO tackles the exponential growth of email storage by safely removing and relocating archived email messages from an active production server – addressing both historical and real-time email based on an email's embedded received date.

MARCO offers:
      •  Tight integration with the MDaemon message store, user, and permission database
      •  Archives inbound, outbound, and historical email
      •  Automatically offloads archived email to another storage location (server, hard drive, NAS etc)
      •  Automatically archives email based on received date instead of modified date
      •  Access archived email via Web interface with full search capabilities
      •  View and forward archived emails without restoring back to original mailbox

MARCO was created by an MDaemon customer FOR MDaemon customers and is available only through authorized resellers. To learn more, visit www.doyouarchive.com.
New Product Installation Data Collection

In order to comply with governmental export control documentation Alt-N Technologies must now collect data (such as name, country, email, etc.) when you install your Alt-N Technologies’ product. This new requirement is a one-time process for you. When you later install future product upgrades, the information you originally entered will be pulled automatically, unless you upgrade on a new machine.

MDaemon 11's New User Name Login Requirement

MDaemon's POP and IMAP servers now require use of the full email address as login by default. If users' 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 would like to continue to allow mailbox-only logins, then you can go to Setup | Preferences. Select "System" in the left-hand navigation menu, then un-check the box "Servers require full email address for authentication" (strongly NOT recommended as mailbox-only logins are ambiguous when MDaemon is serving multiple domains).

In addition, the Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan integration will not work if you are using only the mailbox portion of your address. You will need to use the full email address.
MDaemon and BlackBerry SSL Certificates

The Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan's SMTP client does not currently support SSL/STARTTLS with self-signed certificates. So, if you use STARTTLS or check the box "Use SSL port" next to "SMTP server" (under Setup | BlackBerry) and are using self-signed certificates, then all SMTP sessions from the Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan 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 Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan's IMAP client does support SSL with self-signed certificates. So, if you check the box "Use SSL port" next to the "Select domain" drop-down menu (under Setup | BlackBerry), you can get IMAP SSL using the dedicated IMAP SSL port with any certificate you have. The Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan's IMAP client does not currently support STARTTLS so it is not possible to get SSL except on the dedicated IMAP SSL port.
Setting up Your BlackBerry to Receive Mail via MDaemon

There are two procedures that must be followed to setup your BlackBerry device to receive email using the Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan via MDaemon. First, the Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan must be enabled in MDaemon.

Next, an email profile must be created on your BlackBerry device. 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 first be deleted and then recreated in order to trigger push mail setup within the Internet-enabled BlackBerry data plan).

If your BlackBerry is not configured to collect mail from your MDaemon account, then use your BlackBerry device to create an email profile to do so.

Shortly after you create your email profile on the device, a SUBSCRIBE request will be received by the Subscribe URL associated with the domain the user belongs to. Once the Subscribe request has been processed, the user will receive an email on his BlackBerry informing him that he has been successfully subscribed for push mail.

For detailed step-by-steps instructions for both the administrator and end user please see our BlackBerry email setup page.
