MAJOR NEW FEATURES

[19813] MDaemon Instant Messaging in Webmail

The WorldClient and LookOut themes now feature a browser-based XMPP client that lets users instant message without needing to run the MDaemon Instant Messenger desktop application or some other XMPP client application. Users can enable it from Webmail's Options | Personalize screen, "Enable MDaemon's Instant Messaging feature in browser". Admins can enable or disable instant messaging per domain using the Domain Manager, per account using the Account Editor, or per group using the Group Manager. It operates on ports 7070 (HTTP) and 7443 (HTTPS).

[19962] Exempt Webmail from Location Screening

Added a user option in Webmail to exempt Two Factor Authentication logins from Location Screening. If a user has BypassLocationScreeningTFA=Yes in the [User] section of their User.ini file, and Two Factor Auth is enabled for the user, Location Screening is bypassed. This allows users to login to Webmail in countries that would normally be blocked by Location Screening.

[20395] Improved AD Integration

Users whose accounts are set to use AD authentication can now change their AD password in Webmail if the "AllowADPasswordChange" setting is enabled in \MDaemon\WorldClient\Domains.ini. It is disabled by default.

[12576] Signature Macros

MDaemon signatures now support macros that insert contact information from the sender's contact in its domain's Public Contacts folder. This allows default and domain signatures to be personalized with the sender's information. $CONTACTFULLNAME$, for example, inserts the sender's full name, and $CONTACTEMAILADDRESS$ inserts the sender's email address. Use Webmail, MDaemon Connector, or ActiveSync to edit the public contacts. Blank values are used if no contact exists for the sender. See the documentation for a full list of supported macros.

The placement of MDaemon signatures can now also be controlled, if the sender wants them somewhere other than the bottom of the message. Use $SYSTEMSIGNATURE$ to place the default/domain signature, and $ACCOUNTSIGNATURE$ to place the account signature.
