For those of you who participated in the previous BETA, we admit that we invited you too early into the process.
As we continued working with Microsoft, more and more unknowns became apparent, and these turned into significant projects that impacted the foundation of SmarterMail. These major issues made it difficult to work on individual problems early BETA customers encountered.
With this BETA, we are essentially feature complete and now have the ability to work on smaller issues that are brought to our attention. Here are the MAPI features that will be released AFTER we go public with this SmarterMail release. These include:
- Microsoft Outlook Rules
- Search Folders
- Microsoft Non-cached mode
- Domain shared resources
Many of you will notice that we specified Microsoft Outlook 2016 and 2019 in the release notes. After working with Microsoft, it is clear Microsoft Outlook 2013 is not completely MAPI over HTTP and uses RPC calls.
Moving forward, SmarterMail will support Microsoft Outlook 2016 and 2019. Other versions of Outlook will continue to work via POP or IMAP, but true Exchange functionality will only be available on 2016 and higher.
