SM16 Release Notes?
Question asked by kevind - December 6, 2016 at 3:46 PM
Unanswered
Hello,
 
Looking forward to the upcoming beta release! While we're waiting for the installer, would it be possible to post the new features, release notes, or whatever you have? This would help us get a jump start on preparing the beta environment (for example, minimum server requirements).
 
Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks, Bruce, for the reply. Just hoping to see what's coming besides the new UI, like if it will have some of the most-requested features:

Groups for Contacts

Allow Reporting of Spam via IMAP
https://portal.smartertools.com/community/a362/allow.aspx

Deleted Items that work like Gmail, iCloud, etc.

How about a up/down, Yes/ Hell NO answer on requests with lots of votes like these:

Is it possible to send AS an alias, and if so how

'Block Sender' is an outdated feature that permanently deletes messages

kevid,
do you think we could move this thread to the Smartermail Blog. That may give the questions more exposure (squeaky wheel get the grease).

looks like its Cricket season. I guess they ignore it and it goes away.

Two Factor Authentication for SmarterMail
- Included in a future security update. There have many discussions in a security thread where we starting to tighten things down.

Enforce HTTP to HTTPS Redirect in SmarterTools Products
- Included in SmarterMail 16.x

Add Category/Group pane to Contacts
- Included in SmarterMail 16.x

Domain Shared Calendars Published to Outlook
- Future version

Allow reporting of Spam via IMAP
- Not a future feature

Modification to Auto-Clean Process
- Auto-Clean has been modified in SmarterMail 16.x to have more capabilities in the future

Implement Bruce's spam settings as default
- We have plans for more integrated spam improvements

Block File Extension List Serverwide
- Included in SmarterMail 15.x and higher

Customizable Webmail Client
- Included in SmarterMail 16.x including complete API's to make your own web app, application or mobile app

Why not Validate Trusted Senders
- We do not see the value.

Make Contacts -> Trusted Senders
- See below

Treat Smartermail Contacts as Trusted Senders
- Included in SmarterMail 16.x

Global Postmaster and Abuse address
- That is old school

Content Filtering does not work for outbound messages
- That is a something we are discussing

Create or access a public file storage area
- You can create a user and share those folders with a Group "Everyone" and share files.

Force Password Change
- Included with our security updates in the future.

Sync spam settings across multiple SM servers
- Now that SmarterMail 16.x is API driven anything is possible. The ability to monitor all servers and push configurations etc. Whether we do this or people build products to do this is not known.

Contact groups in webmail only
- Not sure what this is.

Current IDS Block Table
- Future version will include persistent IDS blocking.

Domain - Acceptable Use Policy - on First
- Not on our road map. With the new Webmail you could integrate or put a content on login pages or other areas that say "By using" etc.

Administrator with read-only permission
- Not on our road map.

Is it possible to send AS an alias, and if so how
- Why not create another user with Forwarding simulating an alias. Would seem to accomplish everything needed.

'Block Sender' is an outdated feature that permanently deletes messages
- SmarterMail 16.x now sends to Junk.

Disable auto-complete
- This is not something we intend to do. Auto-complete becomes even more important throughout SmarterMail and has the ability to remove addresses in that list as well.

Hope this helps,

Tim

Regarding "Why not Validate Trusted Senders - We do not see the value."

Since I'm the one who suggested it, I tried to explain it better. Please see my reply here:
