MailServe Snow 4.1.3 Released

Category : Technology/MailServe4dot1dot3Released.txt

I've released MailServe Snow 4.1.3.

It includes a few new features. I've added the ability to create and delete mail users from within MailServe, and decide if the user should be hidden from the Login Window and whether he has the full complement of the standard OS X home folder or a minimal home folder to store only the IMAP folders.

The administrator can also decide for this user if his spam mail will be deleted right away or continue to collected in the spam folder.

Dovecot has been updated to the latest version 1.2.10.

Fetchmail was updated by Apple to 6.3.11 via the latest software updates, and this version has a much less chatty log and so the Fetchmail log has been merged with the Postfix and Dovecot log in the MailServe Log Panel.

Finally, there used to be a 16K limit to the size of the Aliases field (and all other similar fields). This limit has been removed and they can now contain as much information as the mail admin wants.

This is a release that includes a substantial amount of code changes, plus a lot of tweaks that the user don't see underneath - unless I left some bugs and, of course, hell may then break loose. But I've tested as much as I can and I've been using it on my live server for a week now. Hope that I've done enough.

This is really the time to put in the new features - when Snow Leopard has already settled in for a while. It would have been unwise to attempt all these when Snow Leopard just came out. So it's a bit of an inversion (in terms of business practice) from what the users would have expected. But this is dictated by the realities of living at the cutting edge of technology. I think this works. (And I'm now going to work on a major new feature addition to DNS Enabler Snow, though there's a new toy - the iPad simulator - that's calling out its siren song.)
