Below is a list of
special considerations and notes that you may need to be aware of
when upgrading to MDaemon version 11.0 from a previous
||MDaemon's POP and IMAP servers now
require use of the full email address as the user name/login
credential. If a user's mail client is configured to use only the
mailbox value as the login (for example, "frank" instead of
"email@example.com"), he will not be able to log in to MDaemon
using that client until he changes the client's configuration to
use the full email address instead. If you wish to continue to
allow mailbox only logins then you can disable the option,
require full email address for authentication," located on the System screen under Preferences. We
strongly recommend that you leave this option enabled, requiring
full email addresses.
||Attachment Linking has
undergone a complete overhaul and as a result its configuration has
been reset to the default value. When upgrading to MDaemon version
11.0, all accounts currently configured to use Attachment
Linking will be set to extract attachments to the FILES folder. You
may therefore need to manually reconfigure accounts that you wish
to use Attachment Linking.
||The WorldClient.dll was
updated to dynamically generate the robots.txt file in the
WorldClient HTML directory to be explicit about which files should
not be indexed. If you wish to disable this behavior then edit
file and set the value: ModifyRobotsTxt=No under
section. Alternatively if the
robots.txt file is read-only it will not be touched. Further,
files need to have the following meta tag
inserted into their headers: <meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX,
||The Globe and Redline themes within
WorldClient were discontinued and are no longer supported. When you
run MDaemon 11.0 for the first time it 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.
||Check a DKIM
DNS Record, located 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
||The default options for quota
calculations have been reset. Review your settings on the Quotas screen 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.
||As part of the new BlackBerry Internet
Service (BIS) integration feature, MDaemon requires all
IMAP/POP sessions from BIS users to use a full email address when
logging in to MDaemon. Thus when configuring their BlackBerry
devices to collect mail they will need to use the full email
address as the login parameter instead of just the mailbox portion
of the address. This is necessary in order to avoid possible
conflicts and to achieve proper account integration. This might
mean that some of your existing users will have to delete and
recreate the mail profile on their device, or at least change their
login value to the full address.
||Because of the powerful changes
to WorldClient's LookOut theme over the last several versions of
MDaemon, and because of the advancement of web technologies and
standards since 2001, the LookOut theme no longer supports Internet
Explorer 6. Users of Internet Explorer 6 who attempt to use the
LookOut theme will be automatically redirected to the Standard
theme so that they may continue to gain access to their email and
other groupware data. It is strongly recommended that Internet
Explorer 6 users upgrade their browser to Internet Explorer 8,
which contains significant improvements to security, rendering
quality and performance.
||The DNS Black Listing (DNS-BL)
feature has undergone some internal coding changes. As a result,
DNS-BL may be disabled
after upgrading MDaemon. It can be easily re-enabled from the
DNS-BL Hosts screen, located under: .
||This version is NOT backwards compatible with previous versions. Installing
and launching this version will result in irreversible changes to
several configuration files. Make a backup of your MDaemon files before
installing this version.
||The Event Scheduling files
for mail collection, AntiVirus updates, and
AntiSpam updates have been
changed. As a result, these schedules were all reset to
installation defaults. Please check your schedules and make
whatever changes you find necessary.
||WorldClient's message index file format
has changed. It will be updated to the new format when a user logs
in for the first time. Expect user logins to be slow the first time
but normal speed thereafter.
||Your DNS-BL settings have been reset.
Check them to make sure they are as you desire. DNS-BL settings are
found under .
||MDaemon Standard no longer supports
Domain Gateways. If you
want Gateway capability you must now upgrade to MDaemon PRO.
||MDaemon Standard is now limited to 5
mailing lists with a maximum of 50 subscribers each. If you want
more or larger mailing lists you must now upgrade to MDaemon
||The "Always Log To Screen" option
in has been reset to its default (disabled). You may want to
||The Signature.dat file is no
longer used. Signatures for individual accounts are now stored
files in the new Signatures root folder.
MDaemon will read Signature.dat and
migrate existing account signatures to the new folder and file
format. You will need to recreate your default domain signature (if
you use one) from the Domain
