Additional Notes & Upgrade Information

  • With the X2 upgrade, a new default setting will take effect for each domain — automatically purging messages older than 30 days from the Trash and Spam folders.
  • Axigen X2 has an upgraded Cyren AntiVirus & AntiSpam engine and no longer includes the legacy Commtouch engine. If you are currently using Axigen with Commtouch, you will need to disable Commtouch and enable the new Cyren filter
  • A small number of customers with old Commtouch licenses will require a new X2 license for Cyren to work. Contact us to request a new X2 license



Known Issues

  • Delivery Status Notifications are currently not functional when requesting them via Outlook Connector.
  • The post-installation Axigen Configuration Wizard is sometimes rendered incorrectly when installing Axigen on Ubuntu 18. A work-around is available here
  • The new profile creation in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 is sometimes generating an error. This can be avoided by running "Troubleshoot Compatibility".
