MailEnable Version 4

SyncML (with WBXML)

SyncML allows the synchronization of MailEnable calendar, tasks and contacts with Mobile devices (Phones, PDAs and Outlook). The SyncML server detects changes made to your contacts and prepares the updates for transmission to SyncML clients.

Likewise, changes made on your SyncML device are transacted to the server. MailEnable communicates with mobile devices via WBXML encapsulation, which reduces bandwidth and is supported by leading mobile handset providers.

Mobile Webmail Client

MailEnable now includes a mobile webmail client that can be used on WAP Enabled devices, browsers and mini-browsers to access mail remotely. The client is designed to provide core messaging functionality over low bandwidth.

The mobile webmail client is ideal for those who wish to manage their mail via a mobile appliance or PDA. It can also be used in a regular browser for those who wish to read their email without loading the graphics and scripts of MailEnable's regular webmail client.

MAPI Connector for Microsoft Outlook

Users of Outlook will likely be familiar with the features for personal calendaring, contact management, and task tracking, and MailEnable webmail users will also be aware of these same features supported through the webmail client. Now with the MAPI connector, these two features are connected, bringing your server hosted calendar to your Outlook client on your desktop computer, along with your contacts and tasks lists.

Changes made in both Outlook and the webmail client are communicated in real time, so you can always be sure you have the most up-to-date data at your fingertips. You can schedule an appointment using Outlook when you are at work, add a "To Do" item to your task list, and update the mobile phone number of a contact. Then when you are away

from your desk, you can still get access to your information from the webmail client, with all the latest updates made at your work desk. And, of course, likewise in reverse - if you get a phone call while you are away from your office, and you need to reschedule that appointment, you can use webmail to make the change, and when you get back to your desk, it will be updated, and you won't miss anything.

MailEnable Webmail - Version 4

Webmail Client

MailEnable's webmail interface has been updated with some feature enhancements as well as style and layout changes. The updated webmail client boasts some significant speed improvements over previous versions. The Version 4.x webmail client also includes some cost/management time saving features such as a forgotten password / saved question and answer feature. Version 4.x webmail includes a new graphical treatment/skin called 'Gun Metal'. The existing skin distributed with Version 3.x has been updated for Version 4.x and is also available.

Server Storage / My Files

MailEnable now allows users to store documents, files, images, video etc on the MailEnable server in a new storage location. The server storage presents itself as a remote storage location to which you are able to save attachments from messages. You can also then access files from the server storage and attach them to your email messages without needing to upload them from your webmail client.

Server Storage Publishing

Mail client users are able to publish folders from their "My Files" Server Storage to the web community. As an example, a webmail user may wish to publish their vacation photos for others to view on the web. To do this, the webmail user simply places their files on server storage (either by uploading them or extracting from email messages) and configures their storage folder to be read by internet users. Other webmail users are then able to use the published URL to view/access the content via their browser and can toggle through the contents of the published folder. This powerful addition provides a simple and hassle free method for MailEnable end users to publish images, presentations or documents to the greater community.

Webmail Personalization

MailEnable's webmail now allows users to personalize their interface by configuring watermarks, opacity and choosing color schemes.

Webmail users can also upload images to their My Files storage location and configure webmail to watermark these files.

MailEnable Enterprise Edition - SMS Connector

SMS Connector

MailEnable Enterprise Edition includes an SMS connector to allow you to send SMS messages from MailEnable. Administrators are able to define SMTP addresses that are mapped to mobile phones. Any messages received to that address are processed by the connector. Mail messages are queued to an SMS message queue where they are picked up by the SMS connector for pre-processing and delivery as an SMS message. The SMS Connector allows you to select from an array of SMS transmission carriers as well as providing connectivity to any phones connected via USB/Serial interfaces. The Generic/USB SMS device is useful for testing the functionality of the connector without needing to sign up with a bulk SMS carrier. MailEnable has the ability to throttle the usage of the SMS connector and to procure message contents before they are converted to SMS.

Extended Calendar Control

MailEnable has replaced its calendar to provide a more usable and practical calendar for webmail users. The new calendar allows you to manage your appointments via drag and drop and inline editing. It also supports calendar overlays to allow you to view multiple calendars simultaneously. Webmail users can now also see free and busy times across multiple months. The extended calendaring features provide group scheduling features and allow webmail users to overlay calendars of multiple users. These calendar enhancements, combined with MailEnable's new mobile connectivity provide a powerful feature set for mobile web users.

Abuse Detection & Prevention Policy

Currently, MailEnable can permanently block IP addresses if they issue too many invalid commands to the server. MailEnable can also lock out accounts after too many failed password attempts. Version 4 of MailEnable provides a new feature whereby services maintain a list of IP addresses and record any significant activity. This record can then be used to determine whether the source addresses have violated a security policy and should be temporarily blocked. As an example, an IP address that is connecting and attempting to spoof user accounts might be blocked for an hour as a means of protecting password dictionary attacks.

Improved Monitoring & Security

MailEnable Enterprise Edition Version 4 includes end-user activity reporting. This allows mail users to view the last 5 days of significant activity performed against their mailbox. For example, a user can see whether messages were deleted from their mailbox or even whether an email message to their account has been greylisted/suspended for later delivery. MailEnable's SMTP service has been updated to provide outbound TLS/SSL support, allowing the secure/encrypted transmission of messages to remote SMTP servers.

Domain Keys (DKIM)

MailEnable's Domain Keys (DKIM) implementation provides inbound validation and outbound signing of messages. The extensive filtering provided by MailEnable allows you to discriminate messages according to their domain key validation. Administrators can either use inbuilt simple criteria or tailor complex scripts according to filtering requirements.

Message Archiving

MailEnable now has the ability to automatically collect and archive by date all messages that are processed by MailEnable. The archiving feature will allow messages to be saved to a folder named by date within a pre-selected MailEnable internal mailbox. The administrator can control which messages are archived (according to whether they are being picked up by the Mail Transfer Agent or delivered by the Mail Transfer Agent).

Log File Archiving

MailEnable Version 4 allows you to archive log files into cabinet files so you may conserve disk space. Compressed files can also be purged/deleted once they become a certain age.

Advertising & Campaign Management

MailEnable's webmail client allows administrators to enable advertising for their webmail customers. The advertising feature allows banner adds to be presented either server wide, or at a postoffice level.

System Administrators are able to logically group advertising material into Campaigns. They can control the frequency of banner rotations and the designated click through URL.

System Administrators and Postoffice Administrators can then select which campaigns they would like to distribute to users.

Subscription Licensing

MailEnable is committed to providing fair and flexible licensing options to its customers.
