New eLearning Course for MDaemon

We have updated the eLearning services to deliver stronger support material for our customers and channel partners. The newly revised eLearning for MDaemon course consists of individual, subject-oriented modules that combine to provide the important training information for those who install, configure, and maintain the MDaemon Email Server. It presents both the concepts of messaging and the practical applications of using MDaemon, such as account maintenance, mailing list management, and spam control.

The training course is comprised of seven self-paced modules that use conceptual illustrations, practical screen examples, and review questions to give administrators a solid foundation of product knowledge. eLearning for MDaemon will be available 24-hours a day, seven days a week; anywhere you have access to the Internet and a web browser.

Additional advanced courses for MDaemon, as well as training for other products in the Alt-N Technologies portfolio will be released throughout the year.

To learn more, review the course outline, try an interactive demo, or to purchase eLearning visit our new eLearning page.

Network World Review Acknowledges What MDaemon Users Already Know

In a recent Exchange Alternative Product Review conducted by Network World, the MDaemon Email Server for Windows was praised for offering the "easiest management" of the products tested. It was the only product that received a screen shot in the print article with a caption that read, "In our testing, Alt-N Technologies' MDaemon system provided the best management facilities. The view it provided into the system queues is unprecedented." The article also stated, "the logging and visibility into system queues is certainly the best we've ever seen in more than 20 years of looking at mail servers."

Using the RelayFax Client with Vista Home

The RelayFax Network Fax Manager Server cannot be installed on Windows XP Home Edition or Vista Home Edition. However, the RelayFax client can be installed on Home Edition, but the cover page options will not work because these versions of the operating system do not include "Fax Services," also known as "Windows Fax and Scan." The RelayFax client can be installed under these platforms, but .cov format cover pages are not supported. To work around this configure the RelayFax server to attach a default cover page.

In RelayFax:
 1. Go to File | RelayFax Properties
 2. Select the "Fax Server" tab
 3. Select "Browse" next to the "Default Cover Page" field and choose your preferred cover page
 4. Click "Apply" and "Ok"

Please note: In Windows Vista & XP (both Pro versions), the fax service does not install by default. You will need to install it separately before installing RelayFax.

For more information, please see RelayFax System Requirements.
