   Share and collaboration tools (Enterprise Only)
MailEnable provides the collaboration tool to simplify management of appointments, contact details and multiple mailboxes. Share calendars, folders and contacts with other web mail users. Adding calendar events and sending invitations to users is quick and easy. Track attendee responses, notify them of changed appointment times and view free/busy times. Users can now add edit and update global contacts from within the web mail interface. Calendar, mailbox, contact information can all be synchronized with Microsoft Outlook.

   Eliminate spam  
A combination of anti-spam features greatly improves MailEnable’s ability to correctly detect and reject junk mail. This reduces false positives and greater user control over spam detection and removal. 

Outbound whitelisting reduces false positives in spam detection. When sending e-mails to a remote party, the IP address of that party is added to the outbound whitelist – meaning any future mail received from that IP address will be accepted by MailEnable. The whitelisting feature is also available within MailEnable filter scripts.

SMTP Greylisting reduces spam by denying email from unknown IP addresses with a temporary error. Subsequent send attempts will then be accepted according to greylisting rules.

MailEnable gives greater control to users over spam detection and removal. Spam tolerance levels (high/medium/low) can be set individually by users. Users can then configure the actions to take when messages meet their ‘spam’ criteria. Users can mark messages as spam and once the threshold of spam from one IP address is reached, the IP address is blocked.

   Statistics reporting (Enterprise Only)
A new reporting module provides detailed statistics on all mail services (POP, SMTP, IMAP) and the MTA. Over 80 different reports can be generated and ranked by user, post office or for the whole system.  Information can be tabulated on data sent, data received, data total, messages sent, messages received, user log-ins and client connections.  

   Greater customization (Enterprise Only)  
There are now even more options for customization and configurability.  Customize list responses on a per list basis - use a custom message for the subscribe and the unsubscribe notifications, create filters at a post office level and customize non-delivery response messages. 

   More features for Professional Edition
Professional Edition now includes functionality previously only available in Enterprise Edition.  Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support for SMTP, POP and IMAP Protocols allows mail clients to connect to the server securely by ensuring that mail communications between the mail client and MailEnable are encrypted. 

The same folder indexing mechanism that is available in Enterprise Edition is now included in Professional Edition. This drastically improves the responsiveness of Professional Edition's web mail. It also significantly reduces the load on the server resources.

Also included - a number of enhancements to the web mail interface including; personal calendaring - which can maintain a personal diary of appointments, as well as create meetings and invite others to attend with an email notification to be sent to each person; tasks; contact groups; "Save as Draft" option and importing of contacts from Outlook/Outlook Express.

   Web administration enhancements
Web administration has a new look and improved usability - including a brand new web administration skin, list scrolling and column order sorting.
