Upgrade Now - MDaemon Email v21 is Available
If your customers are currently running MDaemon Email versions 20, 19, or older, they are not covered by the new security features or fixes!
Upgrading to version 21 means users get the most up-to-date security features to protect their organization, as well as improved existing features. If they're running an older version, it's possible that they're more vulnerable to security threats without the updated patches. Users may also be experiencing performance issues on that older version.
If your customers continue to run an older version, they'll miss out on the following benefits:
- Deferred Message Queue improves message delivery performance
- Authentication Failure Log allows administrators to track authentication failures for SMTP, IMAP and POP
- Multiple Mobile theme improvements
- MTA Strict Transport Security (MTA-STS) that improves email security by requiring email to be sent to an authenticated server using good encryption
- Compromised Password Check compares user's passwords against a list of compromised passwords and prevents users from using passwords on that list
- Improved Remote Administration for increased ease of use
- Clustering Support allows multiple MDaemon servers to distribute mail delivery processes and provides improved protection against system interruptions
See all the features and updates available in MDaemon Email v21.
If your customers are current license holders they can upgrade to version 21 for free, and expired renewals are able to upgrade at a deeply discounted rate.
