Professional Mail Server Edition
MailEnable Professional Edition includes all features of MailEnable Standard Edition plus additional features such as Webmail, Mobile Webmail and Web Administration, 3rd party antivirus scanning, enhanced anti-spam features & IMAP4. Professional Edition provides the features and flexibility to make it the ideal mail hosting solution for small to medium sized organizations.
Here are some key features of Professional Edition:
MailEnable Professional Edition provides additional mail protocols to provide extra functionality and flexible mail access for end-users. Supported mail protocols include POP. POP Retrieval. SMTP. IMAP. Exchange ActiveSync. CalDAV. CardDAV. and HTTPMail.
ActiveSync provides the highest level of integration for the latest mobile devices including iPhone/iPad, Android and Windows Phone 7. It is also available on most other mobile platforms.
ActiveSync is able to negotiate changes and updates protocol uses a technology that is often referred to as “Push”. The “push” technology means that changes made on the mobile device are synchronized with the MailEnable server (and vice-versa) without requiring polling.
ActiveSync is also a very efficient protocol and minimizes the amount of data that is sent over the mobile network.
Exchange ActiveSync for MailEnable is licensed per mailbox per annum.
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. SMTP is a protocol for transferring outgoing email messages from one server to another and also to accept email messages from other mail servers and email clients. SMTP is used with both POP3 and IMAP4.
POP POP Retrieval
Post Office Protocol. This is a mail protocol that enables emails to be retrieved from a remote mailbox. That is, it allows you to collect emails from an hosted account that you have hosted on a server to your own email software, such as Outlook, Eudora etc.
The POP Retrieval Service will download mail via POP from a remote POP server and deliver to a local mailbox. Users are able to configure their own settings from Webmail. This means you can retrieve your emails from different mail accounts and view it on their local mailbox without having to log in to each separate account.
IMAP4 is a mail protocol that allows users to be disconnected from the main messaging system and still be able to process mail. Users can store messages on a local machine or on a server.
IMAP has distinct advantages over POP because it allows you manage multiple folders on the server. Mail can be accessed from different machines, as the mail is hosted on the server (unlike POP which deletes mail from the server after being accessed) and allows the user to just download message headers and envelope information, until the user selects the email to download. This is useful when operating over slow speed dial-up connections.
IMAP4 can break up and download specific parts of a multi-part email message (MIME). This means that instead of having to wait for an email with attachments to download, you can select only the text portion to download, and leave the attachments on the server.
IMAP4 allows you to have server hosted folders and subfolders.
CalDAV allows leading email clients and mobile devices (including the Apple iPhone), to access MailEnable mailbox calendars. CalDAV is ideal for mobile users who wish to access and update their calendar in real time.
CardDAV allows mobile devices to remotely access and manage contacts stored on the MailEnable server. Changes made to the contacts stored on the mobile device are automatically sent to the server; and changes made on the server are received and updated on the mobile device. CardDAV is ideal for mobile users who wish to access and update their contacts in real time via their mobile device.
An all-new Mobile Webmail was introduced in Version 7, a client designed exclusively for smartphones and tablets that is light-weight and supports swipe scrolling.
The mobile client also allows you to automatically login, so you can access your inbox and contacts quickly. You can also tile the screens so they are readily available on your mobile device.
Version 8 includes an updated version of the Mobile Webmail client which includes support for Tasks and Calendaring.
Web Administration provides an interface to allow you to manage various services remotely via a web browser. Web Administration allows you to delegate management of Postoffices to Postoffice administrators. This effectively reduces your administration load, especially if you are hosting multiple postoffices (for example, one per customer or company), each company can manage their own configuration. You can also restrict the number of mailboxes, lists created in each postoffice via the Web Administration interface.
Guard your inbox from unwanted junk mail using anti-spam features including SPF, Bayesian Filtering and URL Blacklist Content Filtering, which prevents spammers ‘forging’ email addresses to send spam. Other anti-spam features include; DNS blacklisting, global filtering, PTR record checking and much more.
Cloud Storage (WebDAV)
It is now possible to use MailEnable as a cloud storage provider. Mailbox owners are able to access their “My Files” folder as a network drive over the WebDAV protocol. Mailbox owners can store photos and documents from their computer or phone (using products like NetDrive and other WebDAV clients). For example, a person can take a photo with their iPhone and immediately save it to MyFiles.
Extensive security measures and authentication methods protect your mail server from unauthorised access. Includes SMTP authentication, integrated Windows authentication, relay control, SSL, NTLM & CRAM-MD5 support.
Protect your system from viruses! Professional Edition integrates with a variety of third party antivirus solutions in order to scan and remove viruses on all incoming or outgoing messages.
Country Code EHLO Blocking
Administrators have the ability to block incoming communications from certain countries by targeting specific country codes. This allows the admin to block potentially harmful or unwanted data from suspicious sources.
Users can specify strings for the SMTP service that will allow it to drop connections when connections use specific EHLO values.
