All of the rumors of incompatible hardware and software, lofty system requirements, no direct migration from Windows XP were my main concerns, just to name a few. Basically, I suspected that once again Microsoft may have laid and egg wrt it’s desktop operating system, so I moved forward very cautiously. The <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/">Deerfield</a> offices would just have to live on XP for awhile longer.<br /><br />I am a very mobile person, and as such have a number of laptops in my life. My “MO” so far in my professional life has been to leave a breadcrumb trail of laptop computers in various places that I frequent. This for me has been a little more convenient than dragging around the ultimate “power portable” everywhere I go. What this means however, is that I have laptops that are still in service that I purchased in 2002 and are based upon the Pentium 4 and Celeron processors with 512MB to 1GB of RAM. So – relative to Windows 7, if the hardware compatibility wasn't an issue the processor power and RAM was.<br /><br />So – I was at a point with a couple of the machines thinking that they were ready for the recycling center. Running XP is almost not-serviceable on these machines any more – even with the OS’s pared down to the bare minimum. The reason is because XP has been service patched so many times over its life time by MS, that just the bare vanilla OS with an anti-virus installed practically consumes all of the system resources, and basically results in a slow pig of a machine.<br /><br />Having nothing to lose and also as a result of some positive experiences with other machines of a little better capability, I decided to try loading Windows 7 on these 2 particular machines just for grins. To my surprise, even the Celeron with 512MB performs fairly well! One thing that I am geeked about is that Windows 7 (and Vista before it) has a feature called “ReadyBoost” that allows you to use an inexpensive USB drive as a virtual cache, that helps speed up machines with limited RAM installed (btw – the 512MB machine and the 1GB machine were at their memory maximum, so their RAM could not be expanded). I purchased 2 Kingston 8GB USB drives for about $24 a piece from the local Kmart, and plugged them into both of these machines.<br /><br />Just so you know – I installed Windows 7 Enterprise N on these machines form our MSDN subscription. Once the initial install was completed it was onto the hardware drivers issues. Guess what? with little effort both machines work in full screen resolution, and all drives, network, wireless, ports, and panel controls work. This was almost unbelievable considering neither manufacturer has Windows Vista, or Windows 7 drivers available for these machines. However some of the devices did not come to life until after the first time I ran Windows Update on them. So – basically on stock drivers provided by MS – these old boat anchors are working fairly well! What I did lose on both machines was the ability to put them in “sleep” mode. They will shutdown properly, and can also be hibernated - I am sure this has something to do with the implementation of ACPI in these machines. To be quite honest – sleep never worked properly with XP on them either. But – I thought that it was a small price to pay for another breath of life into these machines that were about to be set out to pasture.<br /><br />One more thing – I was not able to “upgrade” windows, but had to perform a “custom installation” which is basically a clean install with the exception that your existing data and folders are intact with the exception of your old Windows folder structure that get renamed to Windows.old.<br /><br />So – if you have some old machines in your life that are at least P4/Celeron or above and you feel adventurous, give it a go! you might actually be pleased with the result. MS has made me a believer in Windows again. Here’s the hoot. I’m actually writing this from a car dealership waiting lobby on my MacBook Pro via a Remote Desktop connection to a machine at the office so I can access Windows Live Writer (the best offline blogging tool PC, or Mac). You got all of that right?<br /><br />Windows 7 - It was my idea ;)<div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/7794342947779884451-5805365457987199907?l=www.mailserverblog.com' alt='' /></div> danjhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11483488793946172482noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7794342947779884451.post-52618599827582388332010-03-19T16:40:00.002-04:002010-03-19T16:44:02.691-04:00IceWarp Training and Webinar Videos <a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/S6Ph01XeKXI/AAAAAAAAAtk/m8owESAPBuk/s1600-h/webinar.jpg"><img style="float:right; margin:0 0 10px 10px;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 103px; height: 88px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/S6Ph01XeKXI/AAAAAAAAAtk/m8owESAPBuk/s320/webinar.jpg" border="0" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5450448271843404146" /></a><p>As a longtime partner and <a href="http://www.icewarp.com/company/partners/deerfield/">IceWarp Distributor</a>, one of the things that I really admire is how well of a job IceWarp does conducting webinars on the various subjects of email server administration.

Plus, DeskClient offers support for both Free/Busy and iMIP/iTIP, which gives users the power to check the availability of colleagues and schedule meetings.</p> <h5><strong>Optimized for IceWarp Server</strong></h5> <p>IceWarp DeskClient is optimized to fully interact with <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/" target="_blank">IceWarp Server</a>, ensuring easy setup and seamless synchronization of all data.

Not So Fast! <p><a href="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/S5lS8_Gt-FI/AAAAAAAAArQ/kCHVKf7aUlI/s1600-h/email-tombstone%5B6%5D.jpg"><img style="border-right-width: 0px; margin: 0px 5px 0px 0px; display: inline; border-top-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px" title="email-tombstone" border="0" alt="email-tombstone" align="left" src="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/S5lS9e-TPZI/AAAAAAAAArU/5pWO9IcOWrQ/email-tombstone_thumb%5B4%5D.jpg?imgmax=800" width="210" height="129" /></a> Since 2006, pundits have been predicting the death of e-mail. The word on the street is that people--particularly under 30s--have abandoned e-mail for IM, texting, Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Jim Lodico, author of the Social Media 2.0 blog, summarizes the <a href="http:///"></a><a href="http://www.socialmarketing20.com/7-reasons-social-media-will-make-email-obsolete/"><strong>reasons most often given for e-mail's demise</strong></a> (among them: too slow, takes too much time, too much spam). </p> <p>But new research suggests it may be too early to give e-mail last rites. In &quot;<a href="http:///"></a><a href="http://www.merkleinc.com/wmspage.cfm?parm1=1041"></a><a href="http://www.merkleinc.com/wmspage.cfm?parm1=1041"><strong>View from the Social Inbox 2010</strong></a>,&quot; Merkle, a customer relations marketing agency, finds that time spent with personal or social e-mail in the fall of 2009 was even with the prior year. &quot;Nearly three-quarters of respondents spent at least 20 minutes a week e-mailing friends and family.&quot; What's more, Merkle found that social network users check their inboxes more frequently than those who shun social sites. &quot;Forty-two percent of social networkers check their e-mail account four or more times a day, compared to just 27% of their non-networked counterparts.&quot; </p> <p>Merkle's findings were similar to those reported by The Nielsen Company in &quot;<a href="http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/online_mobile/is-social-media-impacting-how-much-we-email/"><strong>Is Social</strong> <strong>Media Impacting How Much We Email?</strong></a>&quot; Nielsen also found that social media use makes people consume more e-mail, not less.&#160; In part, that's because you can choose to get an e-mail every time a friend comments on a posting or engages in an activity. And as people make connections though social media, they &quot;may extend those connections to e-mail.&quot; </p> <p>The prediction that social media will kill e-mail reminds me of the premature death notices that accompany nearly every new technology: TV will kill radio, videos will kill movies. Most times, old technologies survive by <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/visnetic-mailflow/" target="_blank">changing</a>. (Do you want to see Avatar on video at home or in 3-D on a big screen at the theater?) </p> <p>Communications consultant <a href="http://novarracom.com/"><strong>Flora Novarra</strong></a>, commenting on Lodico's post, makes a succinct case for e-mail's survival. &quot;Would you really want to get your bank statement through your social network? Would you want a tweet from your ex arranging weekend visitation?&quot;</p> <p>New technologies simply give people more choices. </p> <p>--Marilynne Rudick</p> <p><b>(c) E-WRITE, 2004 - 2010.</b></p> <p>Marilynne Rudick and Leslie O'Flahavan are partners in <b><a href="http://www.ewriteonline.com">E-WRITE,</a></b> a training and consulting company that specializes in writing for online readers.

What this means in the context of <a href="http://www.deerfield.net/m-5-3cx-ltd.aspx" target="_blank">3CX Phone System for Windows</a> and <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/kerio-connect/" target="_blank">Kerio Connect 7</a> deployed together, is a single repository (inbox) where both voice mail message (VM’s) and email coexist.&#160; From the UM inbox, users are able to either read their email, or review and listen to their VM’s.&#160; Combining 3CX and Kerio Connect will inexpensively and effectively do just that for those that wish to deploy these two products together.</p> <p>By combining 3CX with Kerio Connect 7 users are able to have email with full groupware capabilities compatible with native support for Outlook MAPI / IMAP/POP3 / ActiveSync, SyncML, iCal, CalDav and a host of network-based, or over-the-air synchronization at no extra cost.&#160; Kerio Connect 7 also comes with a sweet webmail client that can be used as a desktop replacement for email clients like MS Outlook.&#160; Kerio Connect is cross-platform and is available in Windows, Mac, and Linux, costs much less that MS Exchange – and is ease as easy as apple pie to administer.&#160; It also contains very good support for Mac and Linux clients as well.&#160; If you are using Kerio Connect with 3CX – it does not matter what OS Kerio is running on, 3CX will talk to it just fine.&#160; It also does not matter what client is connecting – Windows, Mac, or Linux.&#160; Of course 3CX will be running on a Windows server itself as it is made for Windows only currently.&#160; One note is that Windows users will also enjoy the benefits of the 3CX Assistant, a desktop application that puts all of the call control (hold, transfer, answer, hang up, etc) in a slick drag-n-drop interface.&#160; Recently however, 3CX released a version of the 3CX Assistant optimized to the Windows Terminal Services environment, so this functionality is available to Mac and Linux users as well.</p> <p>3CX provides a complete telephone system with functions such as auto-attendant, VM, call queuing, ring groups, transfer, hold, foreward, follow, and a bunch of other stuff.&#160; The integration occurs between 3CX and Kerio at the VM level.&#160; When a VM is left for a particular extension, an email address can be specified where a copy of the VM should be emailed (either the whole VM as an audio file, or just a VM notification).&#160; Users then receive these in their inbox, and they can be reviewed and played from right within the PC, and most newer mobile devices.</p> <p><a href="http://lh4.ggpht.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/S5F4RG-SFLI/AAAAAAAAAqU/ndZIpB0XUo8/s1600-h/Mail%20Server%20Config%5B3%5D.png"><img style="border-right-width: 0px;

While companies often install separate messaging servers in offices located in other cities or countries for performance, security or compliance reasons, they often lose the benefits of a single collaboration server – most notably the ability to see the availability of coworkers in other offices. Kerio Connect 7 allows companies to join their Kerio Connect servers into a single geographically dispersed cluster with servers aware of each other’s user groups, individual user’s availability, shared contacts in Global Address Lists, or shared resources such as conference rooms.</p> <p>The management of distributed domains is also an integral part of a newly introduced web-based Administration Console, providing complete remote management of Kerio Connect 7 from any modern browser.</p> <p>Kerio is hosting a free channel only training webinar on Wednesday, February 24, at 7:00 am Eastern, 10:00 am Pacific Standard Time (San Francisco, GMT-08:00), to cover what’s new in version 7.0, and you are strongly encouraged to attend. <br />------------------------------------------------------- <br />To register for the online event <br />------------------------------------------------------- <br />1. <a href="https://kerioevents.webex.com/kerioevents/onstage/g.php?d=668847688&amp;t=a&amp;RT=MiM0&amp;p">Click here </a>to join the online event. <br />Or copy and paste the following link to a browser: <br /><a href="https://kerioevents.webex.com/kerioevents/onstage/g.php?d=668847688&amp;t=a&amp;RT=MiM0&amp;p">https://kerioevents.webex.com/kerioevents/onstage/g.php?d=668847688&amp;t=a&amp;RT=MiM0&amp;p</a> <br />2.

A new structure and new behavior. Multiple sets of the left structured tree and also keywords. Keywords are used for the new Search feature. Any partner can now create an independent set of the left tree structure (make it only 3 nodes with one tab for instance). By default there are Advanced and Basic and just like in Outlook you can change them by clicking the buttons on the bottom. </p> <p>The language selection has been removed from the menu and put to the status bar. This way any user can see instantly they can change their language and it is just much more user friendly. </p> <p>Additionally some graphical tuning has been done. The user and domain tabs have been updated in the philosophy so that the first tab is simple as possible (admin must not be confused what to set in the fields). This means that some options were moved from the first tab to Options and others. This is specifically true with the user account. Mail and Options tabs were reorganized. </p> <p><strong>Groupware - Mailbox Quota Checked </strong></p> <p>Groupware finally checks the mailbox quota while working with attachments. It rejects any objects exceeding the mailbox quota and properly updates the sizes. If you are trying to insert a large attachment it will simply not let you. WebClient also handles the error codes properly. </p> <p>Finally the admin has full control of their servers and there will be no mailbox quota violation. </p> <p><strong>Groupware - AddvCard</strong> - Multiple Objects Support </p> <p>It is possible now to import or add a vcard object with multiple objects in it. Any system can export multiple vcard objects to a text file and Groupware will simply import them all with just a single click (in WebClient). </p> <p>It was already possible to do so with vCalendars (Event, Task and Journal) and it is a breeze with contacts now. </p> <p><strong>Windows Search Auto Configuration And On By Default </strong></p> <p>Not sure if you people realized how great the new IMAP Fulltext search via WindowsSearch really is. It just works and any Body search in WebClient will output the results immediately. We decided to enable and integrate WindowsSearch by default. The reason is simple. Our server must be a working and complete solution right after installed. No additional tweaks or settings should be required. </p> <p>So IMAP Fulltext search will be working automatically right after installed. </p> <p><strong>Archive - Deleted Messages </strong></p> <p>A new archive mode has been implemented. Delete Messages archive simply all deleted messages and nothing more. This is specifically handy if you do not wish to have dual copies of all emails (default Archive behavior). Simply, there is only one copy in the system with this mode. Either it is in your mailbox or the Archive. </p> <p>Some users require this functionality instead of the default one. Me personally, I like the Received mode :). And yes, Archive is also on by default (both email and IM) for the same reason as above. </p> <p><strong>Intrusion Prevention for POP/IMAP </strong></p> <p>Some of you asked for a FR to support Intrustion Prevention for POP/IMAP protocols. Well, it was implemented and it is working. The whole feature was revised and redone from scratch. It is faster, smoother and more powerful now. </p> <p><strong>Routing - Sender / Recipient Conditions </strong></p> <p>The mail Routing feature has been greatly extended to support additional behavior. Basically, you can also make conditions based on the Sender. Originally, only the recipient was checked. Now you can also check the sender and make rules such as: </p> <p>If the sender is from local domain A then forward all messages to a remote server B. Any similar scenario is possible. </p> <p><strong>WebClient: </strong></p> <p><strong>Files Rename</strong> </p> <p>Due to the reason that File objects are really files we realized it must be possible to also rename files in WebClient. So it was implemented and it is possible now. Not only you can upload a new content of SmartAttach file link but you can also rename a file and still it will be working. </p> <p>I anticipate you all know that SmartAttach works over WebDAV and groupware File objects :) </p> <p><strong>Item Select - Search Support </strong></p> <p>Selecting an item already present on the server to be sent over email or file transfer (be it an email or groupware object) is easy as never. When browsing folders to select items you can perform search now. </p> <p>It is very user friendly and brings a great experience to any user. </p> <p><strong>File Transfer - Send Mails / Groupware </strong></p> <p>The IM file transfer supports sending emails and groupware objects already present on the server. How good is that? You simply select an email you just received and the remote party will receive it. Or you select a contact and send it to somebody else without even using email. </p> <p><strong>WebPhone</strong> - No JMF Needed, DTMF Support, Better Compatibility </p> <p>Another great news is that the WebPhone has been redone and it no longer requires JMF. Yeah. It is also more compatible with other SIP clients. JMF was really buggy so we decided to implement direct libraries for RTP and codecs. </p> <p>Additionally WebPhone will support DTMF so you will be able to navigate in any call centre. This is really big. </p> <p><strong>Tab / Focus Support </strong></p> <p>Something many users were complaining for a long time. My dear Lukas has implemented tab support for all visual objects. You can easily press Tab or Shift+Tab to move to a next or previous visual object. </p> <p>Options, Emails, Contacts or any other dialog easily supports the new tabbing. One more step to become perfect. </p> <p><strong>Confirmation on Exit </strong></p> <p>I was very surprised that some of you complained about WebClient exit confirmation alert. First of all, all major web email solutions do it and users should just logout first. Anyway, when I realized Lukas actually listened to these people and since then I accidentally killed my WebClient session like 10x a day I knew we had to make this an option. </p> <p>As a result there is a new option where each user can set it to match their specific needs. You can completely suppress this functionality, have it only if mail compose is open or always (this one is for clumsy me :)). </p> <p><strong>Save Multiple Items (ZIP) - Mails, Groupware, vCard etc. </strong></p> <p>Another great idea by the webclient guys. It will be possible to select multiple objects (email, task, calendar or contact) and save them to a ZIP file, vcard (containing multiple objects) or vcalendar with multiple objects. </p> <p>Very cool actually. A user can backup their emails or contacts just like that. One of my favorite features for sure :) </p> <p><strong>Active Sync: </strong></p> <p><strong>Version 12.0 Compatible </strong></p> <p>Alex has been working hard for the last couple of weeks on the new ActiveSync v12.0. It is almost finished but due to licensing conditions with Microsoft it will not be released in 10.1 anyway. </p> <p><strong>So what new features does 12.0 bring? </strong></p> <p>HTML emails for Windows Mobile (other phones use raw emails so HTML was not an issue here) <br />Out Of Office <br />New Provisions <br />Other new features <br />I am very excited about HTML emails for my HTC HD2 actually. I have been extremely happy with HTC HD2, it is the best device out there. Especially if you tweak it as I did with mine (running latest Windows Mobile 6.5.5). However, reading HTML emails over EAS was not possible until now. It is really handy. </p> <p>Supports Any EAS Device (WinMo 5.0 to 6.5, iPhone, Android, Nokia and others) </p> <p>A little note about device compatibility. Our ActiveSync implementation supports literally any device out there. It cannot be said about other our competitors. For instance they only support 12.0 but iPhone only supports 2.5. Our solution supports all versions simultaneously and thus is compatible with any device. </p> <p>This is something for you to realize and use it as an argument with your potential customers. To be frank I'm not sure if Exchange supports more versions of EAS simultaneously (probably it does) but I am more than sure that our competitors do not :). That is all I am trying to say. </p> <p>That is all from me this time. You can see the list is huge and you hardly remember anything of it. We are becoming number one in the market. </p> <p>Latest 10.1 nightly build: </p> <p><a href="http://www.icewarp.com/download/beta/icewarp-latest.html?type=nb">http://www.icewarp.com/download/beta/icewarp-latest.html?type=nb</a></p> <p>Take care. <br />Regards, <br />Jakub </p> <div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/7794342947779884451-8018301404219431095?l=www.mailserverblog.com' alt='' /></div> Diana and Mike Deerfieldhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07186983174440579785noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7794342947779884451.post-69043874734265352632010-02-10T12:00:00.013-05:002010-02-10T12:49:21.010-05:00Deerfield.com Enhances Email Security SaaS <span class="Apple-style-span" style=" ;font-family:Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif;font-size:13px;"><p class="MsoNormal" style="-webkit-user-drag: none; margin-top: 0in; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-left: 0in; "><span style="-webkit-user-drag: none; font-family:Times New Roman;">Email security is a growing concern for many organizations due to the numerous "email borne" threats on the Internet today. On-premise enterprise email administrators (IT staff) are constantly battling with fine tuning anti-spam and anti-virus settings, in the never ending battle to stop these threats. <a href="http://ftp.deerfield.com/marcom/email-security/switch.pdf">Recognizing the need</a> for <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/email-security/features/">managed email security services</a> to offload the administrative burden of managing email security (and the bandwidth consumed by spam and viruses), <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/">Deerfield</a> launched "<a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/email-security/">Deerfield Email Security</a>" (DES) in 2007.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="-webkit-user-drag: none; margin-top: 0in; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-left: 0in; "><span style="-webkit-user-drag: none; font-family:Times New Roman;"><br /></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="-webkit-user-drag: none; margin-top: 0in; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-left: 0in; "><span style="-webkit-user-drag: none; font-family:Times New Roman;">Since Deerfield Email Security is a "cloud-based" service, it requires no additional hardware, software, or infrastructure within your organization <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/email-security/resources/howitworks.htm">to work</a>. Additionally, Deerfield Email Security works with virtually any on-premise standards-based email server software or appliance, running on any operating system. The subscription-based model allows organizations to easily and <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/email-security/pricing/price.htm">economically</a> outsource email security with no long term contract commitments.

While companies often install separate messaging servers in offices located in other cities or countries for performance, security or compliance reasons, they often lose the benefits of a single collaboration server – most notably the ability to see the availability of coworkers in other offices. Kerio Connect 7 allows companies to join their Kerio Connect servers into a single geographically dispersed cluster with servers aware of each other’s user groups, individual user’s availability, shared contacts in Global Address Lists, or shared resources such conference rooms.</p><p style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; ">“We support a significant number of clients with multiple offices around the world,” says Kevin Klein, CEO of 318 Inc., a value-added reseller and Kerio Preferred Partner in Santa Monica, California. “The new distributed domain feature will enable 318, Inc. to delegate management of a server at each location, while keeping everything under the same domain.

The restore process will depend on how the Events or Contacts were backed up.<br /><br />1. Global level: The entire Groupware database is stored in a SQLite database, unless you changed it to a different database. The database file is located in the following default location under the installation path for IceWarp.<br /><br />calendar\groupware.db<br /><br />If you want to globally restore the data (All user Events and Contacts) you can restore a copy of this file. You would have needed to schedule a disk backup or have copied this file to a backup location (shared drive, etc...) for future restore.<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04lZ8Q915I/AAAAAAAAALs/hxoC898r1VY/s1600-h/manual_restore.JPG"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 191px; height: 230px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04lZ8Q915I/AAAAAAAAALs/hxoC898r1VY/s400/manual_restore.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5426315728632272786" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Or, again globally, you can restore a backup file created manually from File - Restore Settings.<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04liWnraXI/AAAAAAAAAL0/wmiGBdIwZtA/s1600-h/system_backup.JPG"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 250px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04liWnraXI/AAAAAAAAAL0/wmiGBdIwZtA/s400/system_backup.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5426315873145809266" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Or restore from a scheduled backup under System - Tools - System Backup<br /><br /><b>Note:</b> If you restore a backup file it will restore the entire server, including server settings, domains and users, etc....<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04lqrILyyI/AAAAAAAAAL8/il8StjCPj3M/s1600-h/domain-user.JPG"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 217px;" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04lqrILyyI/AAAAAAAAAL8/il8StjCPj3M/s400/domain-user.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5426316016089811746" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />2. Domain/User level: You can Backup the domain or individual users Groupware data from Groupware - General - Backup Data... See other options in this tab for backup and restore options.<br /><br /><b>Note:</b> Keep in mind you would have had to use the backup option prior to the need to restore in order to restore the events in question.<br /><br />3. User level: The user also has the option to backup (export) Events from IceWarp Webmail client.<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04l4F6x-vI/AAAAAAAAAME/HYLVZyUB0FE/s1600-h/Tools.JPG"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 163px; height: 182px;" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04l4F6x-vI/AAAAAAAAAME/HYLVZyUB0FE/s400/Tools.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5426316246619650802" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Tools - Import / Export<br /><br /><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04l_YzVxtI/AAAAAAAAAMM/5-thr-aGHYc/s1600-h/Import.JPG"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 229px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/S04l_YzVxtI/AAAAAAAAAMM/5-thr-aGHYc/s400/Import.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5426316371947800274" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Groupware tab<br /><br />After logging in to Webmail select Tools - Import/Export, select the Groupware tab and Export. This will save the Events or Calendar to file so it can be restored later. Of course, this would have had to take place prior to the need to restore Events.<br /><br />4.

Now, as IceWarp brings its revolutionary platform into the worldwide market, it is poised to replicate this success globally.</p> <p>&#160;<strong><em>“Given the renowned success of the North American rollout, </em></strong><a href="http://www.icewarp.com" target="_blank"><strong><em>IceWarp’s</em></strong></a><strong><em> global momentum is destined to accelerate,” said Chris Knott, IceWarp’s VP of Support Operations. “Our customers tell us they haven’t seen a product that delivers the communication power and level of integration that IceWarp provides.” </em></strong></p> <p>In large part, the success of Version 10 is due to powerful new <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/mobility/" target="_blank">collaboration and mobility features</a>, including the official support of Exchange ActiveSync – which is enhanced by IceWarp SmartSync, a technology that provides a more fluid mobile experience. <br />Through a combination of carrier-grade stability and enterprise-grade features, Version 10 requires near-zero configuration. Since this greatly reduces deployment obstacles, IceWarp's support team has been focusing much more on advanced business solutions, allowing administrators to realize the full potential of true unified communications. <br /><em><strong></strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>“Version 10 is a paradigm shift in communication technology, setting a new standard in integration,” said Christopher Grady, CEO of IceWarp, Inc. “It delivers advanced communication, collaboration, security and mobility in a single unified solution, while introducing groundbreaking features, such as IceWarp SmartAttach – a new method of securely handling large file attachments.”</strong></em></p> <p>IceWarp now offers its customers Flex-Licensing, an innovative price structure that promotes unprecedented granularity in software licensing. Version 10’s remarkable scalability and rich feature set make it the ideal solution for enterprises and hosting providers, while the affordability that Flex-Licensing introduces ensures that true unified communications can be made available to the small business market for the first time.&#160; <br /></p> <p>About IceWarp – For over a decade, IceWarp has focused on unifying communications for every business class, size and niche. The release of Version 10 advances the threshold. <br />IceWarp Unified Communications Server is available through a comprehensive global network in over 28 countries, including America, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom </p> <p>* Deerfield Communications Inc. is the <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/">U.S. Authorized National Distribution Agent</a> for IceWarp Unified Communication Server.</p> <p> <br />Media Contact: <br />Tom Occhipinti <br />www.IceWarp.com <br />PR@IceWarp.com <br />1.888.ICEWARP, ext 1212</p> <div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/7794342947779884451-1589063316803072343?l=www.mailserverblog.com' alt='' /></div> Diana and Mike Deerfieldhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07186983174440579785noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7794342947779884451.post-68599807471910748462009-12-09T14:50:00.001-05:002009-12-09T14:52:24.633-05:00NEWS: Kerio MailServer Beta – Released as Kerio Connect 7 <p><b><a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/kerio-mailserver/" target="_blank"><img style="border-bottom: 0px; border-left: 0px; margin: 0px 5px 10px 0px; display: inline; border-top: 0px; border-right: 0px" title="Kerio" border="0" alt="Kerio" align="left" src="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_lfMqnPW4Iqk/Sx__c1QKW3I/AAAAAAAAAjs/ugP2NYF7dV0/Kerio%5B7%5D.jpg?imgmax=800" width="150" height="34" /></a> </b></p> <p><b>New features:</b> <br />Full Web Administration (from IE, Firefox, or Safari), CalDAV Protocol Support, Distributed Domains, just to name a few -</p> <p>When <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/kerio-mailserver/" target="_blank">Kerio MailServer</a> first launched, it was centered around email and email security.

In IceWarp version 10 we see the validation of this decision and the evolution of IceWarp from a robust messaging platform relied upon primarily by ISP’s and heavy traffic users to a unified messaging solution designed for any size organization. It accommodates nearly any messaging requirements, and creates new opportunities for consolidated communication, mobility, resource conservation and administrative ease.”&#160;&#160; With hundreds of new features and enhancements, version 10 is improved in nearly every area, but the following new features are particularly noteworthy:</p> <p>· <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/mobility/" target="_blank"><strong>ActiveSync</strong></a> – provides live synchronization with mobile devices, including most Microsoft mobile devices and Iphones, out of the box without the requirement of client side software. This new feature not only allows for seamless synchronization with mobile devices, but it also makes setup simple and reduces nearly all administrative overhead.</p> <p>· <b><a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/client-software/" target="_blank">Unified Webmail</a> – </b>IceWarp version 10 Webmail is a reimagining of web based email clients. From any browser users may now: send and receive email, schedule appointments and tasks, share contacts, instant message, send SMS messages, and even call contacts and receive calls using IceWarp’s new VoIP capabilities. IceWarp Webmail can now not only be used as a primary email client, it can also provide a hub for all forms of contact and calendaring, from anywhere.</p> <p>· <b><a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/features/#smartattach" target="_blank">SmartAttach</a> –</b> a revolutionary new feature that allows recipients to download attachments via secure http instead of receiving and processing them by email. This is a logical new technology that saves significant bandwidth and ensures that files are not housed on unsecured recipient mail servers or archives. </p> <p>“We are pleased to announce this release with Deerfield and believe this is the start of a new, exciting chapter in the distribution of IceWarp,” said Chris Grady, CEO of IceWarp USA. “We are well aware that Deerfield has been supporting and selling mail servers since 1997, and has been a key contributor to the success of IceWarp since 2001. With a wealth of experience in the email server and messaging fields, and a reputation for outstanding support and service – particularly geared towards the needs of small businesses, Deerfield is well positioned to be our go-to distribution partner for IceWarp in the US.”</p> <p>Learn more about IceWarp Server at: <a href="http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/">http://www.deerfield.com/products/icewarp/</a></p> <p><b>About Deerfield.com:</b> <br />Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Gaylord, Michigan, Deerfield.com® is an International publisher and distributor of Computer Software enabling Multi-Contact communications via the Internet - Email, Chat, and Voice.

In this post I wanted to provide you with some information on how an attachment is included with email messages.<br /><br />The standard for attaching files or including different content types in your email message is defined using <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIME">MIME version 1.0</a>. MIME is a very simple method for separating message body content into parts so it can later be viewed by an email client.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight:bold;">Discussion:</span><br /><ol><li>MIME Messages</li><li>MIME boundaries</li><li>Types of content - HTML, Text, Images, Files<br /></li><li>MIME end boundary</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">MIME Messages<br /><span style="font-weight: bold;"><br /></span></span><span>Most email clients use MIME when creating email messages, however, there are older technologies that may still be used today, for example, </span><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uuencoding"><span>uuencoding</span></a><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"> </span></span><span>was big back in the day for attaching files and for Newsgroups. Basically it consisted of tags (begin / end) that told the reader where the beginning and the ending parts of the attachment were.</span><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"> </span></span><span><span>This worked great but didn't provide the flexibility needed to decode modern email messages.</span></span><span style="font-weight: bold;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"><br /></span></span><span><br />The method used by MIME to divide the message body into parts is fairly simple and knowing how to read MIME may help you in troubleshooting email issues.<br /><br />Most email clients will not allow you to view the MIME boundaries or MIME content of an email message so keep in mind that you will need to read the original message file saved by your mail server to see MIME content/boundaries.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">MIME Boundaries</span><br /><br />MIME Boundaries are tags defined by the MIME Boundary header. The email client reads the boundary header and looks in the message body for the boundary to determine the start of an attachment or special message body content, such as HTML.<br /><br />Here's an example of a message showing MIME boundaries, this is standard header configuration and should appear on all MIME messages (other than the boundary tags which are always unique).<br /><code><br /><span style="font-size:100%;">---------------------------------------------<br />Received: from remote_domain.com (127.0.0.1 [127.0.0.1])<br /> by danj (IceWarp Server v9.4.3) with ESMTP id QZS43813<br /> for </span>danj@domain.com<span style="font-size:100%;">; Mon, 09 Nov 2009 09:35:13 -0500<br />Date: Mon, 9 Nov 2009 09:35:13 -0500<br />Return-Path: danj@remote_domain.com<br />To: Dan<br />From: Fred<br />Subject: Test message<br />Message-ID: 6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4@remote_domain.com<br />X-Mailer: IceWarp Mailer 9.4.3 (2009-06-22)<br />X-Priority: 3<br />MIME-Version: 1.0<br />Content-Type: multipart/alternative;<br />boundary="b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4"<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4<br />Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8<br />Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit<br /><br />This is a test message<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4<br />Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8<br />Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit<br /><br />&#60;b&#62;This is a test message&#60;/b&#62;<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4--<br />---------------------------------------------<br /></span></fred@remote_domain.com></danj@domain.com></danj@domain.com></code><br /></span><div style="text-align: center;"><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/Svg0cDvKAII/AAAAAAAAAKg/qAixfNCSSUg/s1600-h/mime-example.JPG"><img style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 361px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jYIKbAqFEJ4/Svg0cDvKAII/AAAAAAAAAKg/qAixfNCSSUg/s400/mime-example.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5402125409674985602" border="0" /></a><br /><span style="font-size:85%;"><span style="font-style: italic;">References to MIME boundary locations<br /></span></span></div><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Content-Type Header</span><br /><br />The Content-Type header defines the type of message and the boundary used to define different parts of the body of the message.<br /><br />The boundary in this message example is:<br /><br />b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4<br /><br />The first starting boundary is defined using '--' followed by the boundary, example,<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4<br /><br />Each time a new part is defined the boundary will separate that section and define the type of content. In this example, the content type is plain/text and HTML. The first starting boundary is plain text and the second is HTML<br /><br /><span><code></code></span>The type of content defined between the MIME boundaries is what tells the email client how to read the content. If you attach an image or document the content type will change for that type of content. Here's an example, using an image attachment<br /><code><br /><span style="font-size:100%;">--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4<br />Content-Type: image/jpeg; name="mime-example.JPG"; charset="UTF-8"<br />Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64<br />Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="mime-example.JPG"<br /><br />wAARCAH5Ai8DASIAAhEBAxEB/8QAHwAAAQUBAQEBAQEAAAAAAAAAAAECAwQFBgcICQoL/8QAtRAAAgEDAwIEAwUFBAQAAAF9AQIDAAQRBRIhMUEGE1FhByJxFDKBkaEII0KxwRVS<br />0fAkM2JyggkKFhcYGRolJicoKSo0NTY3ODk6Q0RFRkdISUpTVFVW<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4--</span><br /></code><br />Notice the Content-Type: is now 'image/jpeg' and the file name is 'mime-example.JPG'.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">End Boundary</span><br /><br />The ending boundary is the same as the starting boundary with the addition of '--' at the end of the boundary, example:<br /><br />--b1_6ae9475a5a749119298f7d5a1ec823b4--<br /><br />The ending boundary may appear more than once in the message, usually defining the ending of attachments other than Plain Text and HTML boundaries.<span><br /><br />For more information on MIME please refer to the following links and I hope this was helpful.<br /><br /><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIME">Wiki</a><br /><br /><a href="http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2045.html">MIME RFC</a><br /><br /></span><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/7794342947779884451-5242525306666388913?l=www.mailserverblog.com' alt='' /></div> danjhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11483488793946172482noreply@blogger.com
