Announcement made by Andrea Rogers - November 15, 2018 at 5:18 PM
Locked Employee Post
We’re very pleased to announce the next version of SmarterMail! 

In this thread, we will only post release notes and changes as new releases are made public. Bugs, suggestions and other feedback should be discussed in the other threads within the SmarterMail category. Instructions on downloading the most current version can be found below.

Step 1 - What to know
Releases of SmarterMail posted in this thread may contain bugs or issues, and some configuration details may still change from release to release. As a result, you should be wary when installing these builds on product servers. There are EXTENSIVE backend processing and configuration file changes that will absolutely and unequivocally prevent you from rolling back to SmarterMail 16.x or earlier. We strongly recommend backing up any databases and file structures before you install the release linked below or any future updates. 
Step 2 - Download the product
The product install files can be downloaded from the link below. Be sure to check back for updates to see when a new build has been released. To upgrade to a new build, follow the steps to perform a minor upgrade, and use the installer link below for accessing each new build. 
Full Installer:

IMPORTANT NOTE: In SmarterMail 17.x, we've updated the indexing format. On your initial upgrade to 17.x (from any earlier major release), ALL user accounts will be re-indexed in order to utilize this new format. As the re-indexing occurs, you will see a temporary spike in CPU. However, please note that a user's experience and the overall server performance should not be negatively impacted, as the indexing thread is prioritized lower than all other threads. In addition, users will still be able to search while this one-time bulk re-index occurs. This is because a user's account will use the old indexing format for searches if the re-indexing has not yet been performed for their account. As soon as their account has finished re-indexing, it will simply switch to the updated format.

Step 3 - Post your feedback
In the SmarterMail category, you'll have the ability to create new threads to Propose an Idea, Report a Problem, and Ask a Question. Please post ONE suggestion, problem or question per thread. This will ensure that each item can be discussed individually and will allow us to better track the implementation of feature requests and bug reports.
Thanks so much for helping to test SmarterMail! We look forward to your feedback!
