Upgrade Now - MDaemon Email Server v21 is Available

MDaemon New Features

If you are currently running MDaemon Email Server versions 20, 19, or older, you’re not covered by the new security features or fixes!

Upgrading to version 21 means you’ll get the most up-to-date anti-spam and security features to protect your organization from email-borne threats, as well as improved existing features. If you’re running an older version, you could be more vulnerable to security threats without the updated patches. You may also be experiencing performance issues on that older version.

If you continue to run an older version, you’ll miss out on the following benefits:

  • Deferred Message Queue improves message delivery performance
  • Authentication Failure Log allows administrators to track authentication failures for SMTP, IMAP and POP
  • Multiple Mobile theme improvements for MDaemon Webmail, including a responsive design that adjusts to any screen size
  • MTA Strict Transport Security (MTA-STS), which improves email security by requiring email to be sent to an authenticated server using good encryption
  • Compromised Password Check compares users' passwords against a list of passwords that have been found in a data breach and prevents users from using passwords on that list
  • Improved Remote Administration for increased ease of use
  • Clustering Support allows multiple MDaemon servers to distribute mail delivery processes and provides improved protection against system interruptions

See all the features and updates you can access in MDaemon Email Server v21.

If you are a current MDaemon license holder you can upgrade to version 21 for free, and expired renewals can upgrade at a deeply discounted rate. Upgrade MDeamon Email Server now!
