Axigen 6.0 New Features
Users can share their personal folders by granting permissions (read, write, delete, etc) or predefined sets of permissions (viewer, contributor, editor, master) to other users/groups in the same domain. The postmaster can control access to public folders, restricting groups or spefic users from performing actions on defined public folders (read, insert or delete messages). Public folder permissions also facilitate allocation of shared resources such as meeting rooms or projectors by creating a dedicated public calendar folder.
Furthermore, from both WebMail and Outlook, one can create special folders: Calendar, Tasks, Journal, Contacts, Notes. Each special folder has type-specific view to display its contents (i.e. Calendar view(es) for calendar-type folders, Contacts view for contact-type folders and so on).
Permissions inheritance over the folder tree
A set of permissions applied to one folder may be inherited to all subfolders (all subsequent changes will automatically apply the entire structure). Additionally, exceptions to this set of permissions may be defined to a specific subfolder or even an entire branch. For instance, one user can grant full permissions on his mailbox to a co-worker except for one 'secret' folder.
Permissions on group hierarchy
A user group may be granted permissions on specific folders. Every new added member inherits the complete permissions set. Any change in the permission set for the group is automatically applied to all members. Additionally, exceptions may be defined for specific users or groups. For instance, you can apply a set of permissions to the 'Sales' group; each new member will have the same permissions; additional permissions can be added to the team leader.
Free or busy
In order to effectively manage employee time and avoid assigning events when a teamís members are already taking part in a different event, version 6.0 of the Axigen Mail Server comes with a feature allowing others to view if their colleagues are free or busy. In order to see the free / busy status, the user needs to have corresponding permissions to view others' calendar entries.
Send mail on behalf of other users
A user can delegate the right to send messages in his name to a co-worker in the same domain. If anti-impersonation is enabled, Axigen will forbid sending emails as another user (altering the 'From' header). Granting the 'Send mail as' permission will allow the co-worker to send emails on behalf of the user, still maintaining the anti-impersonation enforcement to the whole server
Temporary Email Addresses
In order not to overload existing email addresses, system administrators can now create temporary email addresses (or alias) to be used for publishing on the web, subscribing to various sites etc. The server can automatically generate and activate such random valid alias (out of letters and numbers). Temporary addresses are regarded as account aliases, meaning that emails sent to those email addresses are received in the user's Inbox.
SNMP is a networking management protocol used to monitor network-attached devices. SNMP allows messages (called protocol data units) to be sent to various parts of a network. Upon receiving these messages, SNMP-compatible devices (called agents) return data specific to certain parameters that are monitored to the SNMP manager. Furthermore to supporting SNMP services, version 6.0 of Axigen also supports SNMP Traps.
Built-in Milter support
The SMTP service can now directly connect to milter-based external filters. This enhancement increases security, allowing external filters to reject an email message before it enters the system queue.
The new HTML Editor
enables the use of rich text formatting when composing an email message (Bold, Italic, Underline / Strike through, Different font face and size, Colors, Subscript, Superscript, Insert link, Bullets etc.).
The RPOP Templates
allow user to easily create RPOP connections to their Yahoo! Mail or Google Mail accounts using their account name and password only. No further information regarding the mail server is needed.
Delay delivery of selected messages
Selectively postpone the delivery of specific messages; for instance delay with 10 minutes messages from the sales department in order to avoid accidental sending or postpone delivery of lower importance messages for night-time. This feature can be applied for messages from specific sender and sender domains, recipient and recipient domains, message sizes and so on.
