We’re very pleased to announce the BETA of SmarterMail 17.x! Along with a number of exciting new features that will be part of 17.x, this BETA will be different than those in the past.
In an effort to highlight features and to give participants time to test and provide feedback on what they see, we’ll be releasing features in multiple phases. Each Phase will feature specific features and improvement that BETA participants can use, test and provide feedback on.
In this thread, we will only post release notes and changes to the BETA throughout the various Phases. Bugs, suggestions and other feedback should be discussed in the other threads within the SmarterMail 17.x BETA category. Use the Subscribe button above to receive email notifications when changes have been made or new builds are made available. Instructions on downloading and licensing the BETA software can be found below.
Step 1 - What to know
SmarterMail 17.x is currently in BETA. As a BETA product, some parts may contain bugs or issues, and some configuration details may still change throughout the BETA. As a result, you should not install the product on any production or mission critical systems. If you choose to install a BETA build on a production system, it is completely at your own risk.
There are EXTENSIVE back end processing and configuration file changes that will absolutely and unequivocally prevent you from rolling back to 16.x. We strongly recommend backing up any databases and file structures before you install the initial BETA software or any updates. For general information on the BETA program, read our knowledge base article, SmarterTools BETA Releases

Step 4 - Post your feedback
In the SmarterMail 17.x BETA category, you'll have the ability to create new threads to Propose an Idea, Report a Problem, and Ask a Question.
