If you wish to keep informed, susbsribe on our RSS feed rss

December 03 2008, v1.8.9.6

  • Improved Export to .NET function - sometimes email messages were not getting exported, because the database of email messages was not up to date. Now each folder gets rebuilt before the export function;

April 14 2008, v1.8.9.5

  • Fixed a problem with SPF. When a SPF record contained looping include macro, SPF checking was looping infinitely;

March 27 2008, v1.8.9.4

  • Just removed ordb.org from the initial settings of DNSBL databases. It appears, recently they return positive reply all the time, causing all mail to bounce, if it is enabled;

October 23 2007, v1.8.9.3

  • Fixed a problem when creating the export data for .NET version: if autoresponder contained more than 255 characters, export process was "hanging";

September 03 2007, v1.8.9.2

  • Fixed problem with IMAP, reporting wrong message numbers;
  • Made changes, fixing certain problems with Squirrel Mail;

Arpil 10 2007, v1.8.9.1

  • Help system converted from WinHelp to HTML help, which means, it will work on Windows Vista;
  • Added Trusted Hosts at Anti Spam - IP Based Filtering. Trusted hosts are similar to Trusted IP Addresses, except, instead of IP addresses you enter domain names, and if the connection originates from an IP address, to which the domain names translated, they are treated as trusted;
  • Access to trusted, banned, disallowed IP addresses, and new trusted hosts lists is more thread safe. It should increase the stability of server;
  • Server now will allow accounts, which contain a quote character in the user name part;
  • Fixed a problem with address book entries containing a double quote character;
  • Mailing lists have a new option - to include mailing list name in the subject line;
  • Mailbags have a new option - rebuild of outbox databases may be disabled at a start up of server. Useful when the mailbag is suspended, with large number of messages in outbox, will improve the startup time of server;
  • Fixed a problem with multi-line mailing list server commands;
  • If DNS Timeout at Tools - Server Options - Advanced 1 is set to 0, the server will no longer use threads when performing DNS lookups, it may fix problems with "Out of Memory" DNS Errors;

All Versions:

Plus and Pro versions:

  • Fixed a problem with resolving SPF records - if the size of record was more than 255 bytes, it was getting truncated, and SPF was returning wrong result;
  • When replying via the Web Interface, now subject lines are HTML encoded - in earlier versions they were getting truncated if they contained a ", >, < and similar characters.

March 04 2006, v1.8.8.7

All changes apply only to Pro version.

  • Fixed a problem with View Headers link on the web interface, introduced in v1.8.8.6;
  • X-ArGoMail-Authenticated headers now are handled properly. Before they were not removed, or updated, when they were inserted by other instances of server, which was causing problems with anti-spam server extensions;

  • Fixed a bug with forwarding from the web interface: after forwarding two messages, first one with attachments, second - without, server was adding attachments to second message too;
  • Fixed a problem with "broadcast" accounts - server was delivering duplicates;
  • Web interface now will allow creation of folders containing a space character;
  • Fixed a problem on the Users and Domains dialog box. If Blank Domain did not have accounts, it was showing accounts from the last domain in the list when displaying at startup;
  • Improved charset handling on the web interface:
    • There is no need to specify META content type in HTML headers, as described in the FAQ. Now value from the default charset from Tools - Web Interface will be transmitted with HTTP headers, sent by server;
    • When displaying messages, charset will be picked up, and transmitted with HTTP headers by browser, which means, there will be no need to manually change character set in the web browser; It will work only with messages smaller than 500 Kb;
    • When forwarding or replying to messages, the same character set will be used. Will work with messages, smaller than 500 Kb;

              <input type="hidden" name="charset" value="##CHARSET##">
              
      right above the line
              </form>
              
      If this line is not inserted, server will be unable to pick up charsets when forwarding and replying.

In earlier versions, there was an option (Tools - Options - Advanced - Use IMAP Streams) to send the data either line by line, which was slow, or, as a stream, in one shot, after entire data was ready, which was causing timeouts, if folder had several thousand messages. Now, that option is gone, and data is transmitted in "chunks" of 8192 bytes (Pro version, affects only IMAP);
