AXIGEN Mail Server 7.2.1 Is Now Available

Category: Product Releases
Published on October 19, 2009

Dear AXIGEN Friends,

We are happy to announce the commercial release of AXIGEN Mail Server 7.2.1. This minor version introduces several new features and enhancements related to the Ajax WebMail interface and domains configuration, while also adding a series of corrections and bug-fixes for both the server and the Outlook Connector.

Among the new features brought by AXIGEN 7.2.1:
- The Ajax WebMail interface now supports mailing list accounts as well. The simple and intuitive mailbox folder structure allows mailing list administrators to easily view and manage new message postings or membership requests from their WebMail account. The "Subscription and Posting" page of the WebAdmin interface has also been refined to provide system administrators with a friendlier and more effective way to configure mailing lists parameters.
- Sysadmins are offered the option to set the type of the WebMail interface (standard only, Ajax only, or both of them with one interface as default) to be used by the WebMail and WebMail Proxy services. In addition, the "Settings" section of the Ajax WebMail interface now allows users to freely choose which keyboard shortcuts to enable / disable, as desired.

To see all the new features and changes brought by AXIGEN v7.2.1, please see the list below.

As always, you can begin the upgrade to the new 7.2.1 release of AXIGEN Mail Server and Outlook Connector by simply visiting the Downloads Area on our website and selecting the desired product kits.
