New Support Forum

Since our support forum at argostuff.com is shutting down, we had set up an alternate support forum at google groups.

Please register, and let's get started.

And, I would like to thank Steve Topolnicky for all his efforts for running and maintaining the forum.

Mail Server v1.0.8.6
  • Fixed several problems causing trouble with iPhone and Android clients;
  • Improved delivery handling, in order to eliminate problems with messages which were getting "stuck" in outbox for forever;
  • Added the way to add .eml files directly to outbox via Mail Server UI;
  • Fixed several UI issues;
September 23 2012, 06:48 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.8.5
  • Support of new ClamAV for windows is back. The earlier version of ClamAV was no longer working with mail server. Now enabled support of new version. Instructions are here
  • Added an option not to lock out "ping" requests - requests when connections come in and disconnect, without issuing any commands;
May 21 2012, 06:08 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.8.4
  • New "optimized" delivery (see 1.0.8.2) turned out to be causing problems with certain servers, which were shutting down connections. Optimized delivery is now optional, and disabled by default;
  • Fixed problems with switching datatabase engine from SQL to SQLite;
  • Improved lockout manager. Now IP address gets locked out when during the connection there are no commands. Some attackers were causing problems with frequent connects and disconnects;
May 21 2012, 02:52 PM GMT
FTP Server 1.0.2.3
  • Added support of UTF8 path names, which means, file names with international characters will be not corrupted. Requires Windows Vista or higher...
November 06 2011, 06:10 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.8.3
  • Added support of STARTTLS (STLS) command for SMTP, POP3, IMAP, and SMTP relay and delivery, which will allow secure, fully encrypted connections, when possible;
October 08 2011, 11:59 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.8.2
  • Optimized delivery speed. In earlier versions each "tick" which was checking whether messages were in the outbox queue, was picking up only one message at a time. Now it will attempt to pick MaximumAllowedThreads-ActiveDelivery threads messages, which should considerably increase deliver speed;
  • Optimized SEARCH and STATUS IMAP commands. They appear to be used very extensively by Android, and (not that extensively, but still) by iPhone. Now users who use mobile phones to access their IMAP accounts will see considerable improvement;
  • Optimized STORE IMAP command. Before storing of IMAP flags was occuring one message at a time, which seemed to be fine with SQL server, but proved to be slow for SQLite... Now it happens with single SQL call.
June 07 2011, 01:33 AM GMT
ArGoSoft Mail Server v1.0.8.1
  • Fixed a bug: when using IMAP via Firefox with "When I delete a message, move it to Trash folder" option, marking messages in the trash folder was causing high CPU usage, and was taking some time, making the server pretty much non-responsive. The problem was happening only when using SQLite.
May 23 2011, 09:53 PM GMT
ArGoSoft Mail Server v1.0.8.0
  • Fixed a problem with web interface - was showing only first page of messages, and would not switch to other pages; In order to fix the web interface, mail server itself has to be updated;
  • When installint initially, was still using SQLite, even when SQL was requested;
  • There was a problem with switching from SQLite database engine to SQL server database engine: the SQL database was not being created;
April 27 2011, 01:47 AM GMT
ArGoSoft Mail Server .NET v1.0.7.9
  • The server no longer requires Microsoft SQL Server. If SQL server is not found, it will use SQLite engine, which does not require separate installation. If SQL server is found, then user will be prompted whether he wants to use it;
  • Made other improvements, such as, now mailbox rebuild indexes orphaned records, rather then deleting them, also added an opotion to increment UIDL validity of folder (both on the Mailbox viewer box);
  • Made minor improvements on web interface;

Mail Server v.1.0.7.7 is now out.

There are no changes in Web Interface.

Previous version (1.0.7.6) of mail server caused problems with users, who had SImple SMTP option disabled on the Options - Server Options - SMTP page. This version fixes the problem.

Mail Server 1.0.7.6 - fix for loaded servers

Mail Server

  • Improved handling of lenghty SMTP connections. New method should eliminate problems with "stuck" SMTP connections, which waere causing high CPU load and, eventually, server crash on heavy loaded servers;
  • Now individual domain groups can be exported and imported. Useful when splitting server between several computers;
  • Fixed several minor problems;

Web Interface

  • Fixed several problems with displaying complex messages on the web interface;
February 25 2010, 05:49 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.7.5

  • Hopefully fixed a problem which was causing mail server to stop

Web Interface

  • Web interface now will work with Safari;
February 21 2010, 11:10 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.7.4

Mail Server

  • SMTP now supports two methods of authentication: AUTH PLAIN and AUTH LOGIN;
  • Improved the way how "stuck" delivery threads are getting cancelled. In some cases with previous versions they could stay connected infinitely long;
  • If a domain is in greylisting exception, and SPF is PASS, DNSBL will be not checked - to avoid blocking messages, when single IP addresses belonging to large ISPs are blacklisted by DNSBL databases;
  • Now there is an option to check all IP addresses, referred to in RECEIVED headers, against DNSBL databases;
  • If autoresponder is enabled, and return address is not specified, now the server will use username, plus @ symbol, plus either the first domain in the list belonging to the domain group, or domain group name itself;
  • If SMTP for account is disabled for an account, connection will be still accepted, if it comes from web interface;
  • If there is an unsuccessful attempt to log into the POP3 or IMAP server, or perform uncussessful SMTP Authentication, and entry is created in the Windows application log;

Web Interface

  • Fixed a problem with messages, containing embedded images with same name - was giving Resource already in use error when displaying images;
January 03 2010, 10:36 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.7.3

Mail Server

  • In previous versions "stuck" IMAP connections were not getting disconnected, because it was assumed that IDLE command can "stick around" infinitely. It turned out, some clients (e.g., iPhone and iPod) do not use IDLE command, but still leave connections open, which causes open IMAP connections to add up. In this version IMAP connection gets periodically checked, along with POP3 and SMTP connections, and gets disconnected, if it was around for long time, and currently is not in IDLE state;
  • Fixed a bug in Archiver: copy function was copying entire folder, not just a selection;
  • If a list of trusted or banned hosts contained blank entry, it was returning false positives. Now blank entries are just removed;
  • If remoting service cannot start, now it not affect other services.  Before it would crash other services too;
  • Added View Log Folder option to the mail server UI;
  • Now catching exception when reading server start date/time. It appears, server startup times was not getting stored properly into the Settings.xml file on non-English versions of Windows;
  • License is now checked onlny at server startup, rather then during each connection. It appears, decrypting of the license and checking it's signature was taking pretty long time on some systems;

Web Interface

  • Fixed a problem with processing MIME messages, when part separators (boundaries) contain space;
December 03 2009, 04:58 PM GMT
FTP Server v1.0.2.1
  • Fixed a potential security threat - no longer accepting very long command lines, which would cause server to crash;
November 27 2009, 12:57 AM GMT

August 20 2009, 09:38 PM GMT
FTP Server v1.0.1.9
July 16 2009, 02:02 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.7.0

Mail Server

  • Outgoing messages would loop infinitely, when there was a DNS server timeout when retrieving MX records;
  • Fixed a problem in IMAP, with displaying ? (question mark) sybmols in sender addresses, containing "high" ASCII characters. Would occur only when messages had attachments;
  • When deleting users, SQL command timeout increased from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Was causing SQL server timeout when users had tens of thousands of messages;

Web Interface

No Changes

July 08 2009, 12:56 PM GMT

  • Fixed a security issue, which was intrduced in v1.0.6.8 after ading Trusted Senders feature...

  • Fixed a bug when importing data from Win32 version;
June 29 2009, 02:46 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.6.8

Mail Server

  • Users, domain groups and mailbags can have individual settings for nine anti-spam features supported by our server. Settings may be inherited from the "above" level, or overriden;
  • Added Trusted Senders - you can specify senders (email addresses), and if the value transmitted with RCPT TO SMTP command matches one of them, connection will be considered as trusted. We do not recommend to use this option, we added it for backward compatibility;
  • Fixed an Object Reference not Set on Object errors when mail was sent to non-existing domains. This error was not causing any problems, was just showing in the log, causing confusion;

Web Interface

  • Made changes to handle individual anti-spam settings (see in the Mail Server sectino above, first point). They are currently handled only for domain group administration section. For list of changes see this document.
June 09 2009, 04:47 PM GMT
Mail Server v1.0.6.7

Mail Server

  • Added Status page to the UI of mail server, now users can see "live" statistics for server;
  • Added buffered output to IMAP. It turns out, that some firewalls are corrupting data, if it is sent in small chunks. Buffering allows to avoid these problems;
  • Optimized database cleanup procedure at server startup. When DNS cache was large, removal of expired records was causing database server timeouts, and server was not starting up;
  • Added status bar to the mailbox viewer, and now message load is performed in a separate thread, which means, screen will no longer freeze when browsing folders containing large number of messages;
  • Fixed a bug with UID COPY IMAP command. When copying 1st message, was causing Index of Range errors;
  • Fixed a problem with accessing newly created users from web interface, default folders were going to as Shared folders area...

  • Reverse PTR checking option now allows exceptions - specified IP addresses (on top of trusted hosts) will be not checked;
  • Fixed a problem with the rotation of DNS servers.
