Production Ready SmarterMail BETA Now Available
Announcement made by Derek Curtis - 12/17/2019 at 5:12 PM
Locked Employee Post Sticky
We’re extremely excited to announce the long-awaited production-ready BETA of SmarterMail, which includes native MAPI as well as tons of new features and performance improvements. 

NOTE: If you upgrade an existing installation to a BETA Build, you CAN NOT downgrade back to a previous version due to the extensive file system changes that were made. 

Customers must prioritize the overall stability and performance of your mail server after upgrading to this production BETA, testing standard day-to-day features and functionality for at least 24 hours before introducing any additional changes, such as MAPI or any configuration changes. 

After that, you can begin enabling MAPI for a small handful of users. (E.g., 5 to 7.) We're still running through optimizations for Outlook clients, and as we resolve issues in MAPI, users will need to remove and re-add their Outlook Profiles after new Builds are released. This is the only way to ensure that the issues that are fixed are truly resolved within the Outlook client. (In most cases, MAPI related issues will not affect other protocols, so removing and re-adding would only need to occur in MAPI-enabled Outlook clients.) 

We will be focused throughout this phase of the BETA, responding to, and working with, our customers here in the Community to ensure anything tested and not working in this BETA will get resolved as quickly as possible.

To get started, you can use the trial license key below:

FA7F58-A6EA15-4C49FF-928DAB-125671-34E4D5

Versions of Outlook Currently Being Diagnosed
  • Outlook 2016 standalone/volume licensed versions -- we are actively working with Microsoft to diagnose why this isn't working properly.
Unsupported Versions

  • Outlook 2013
This particular thread is locked and conversations should be started in the main SmarterMail category moving forward. We want this particular thread to be a running list of every Build we release as well as notes on what  has changed so that customers can see the progress and where we are in the release process.

Apple currently has another beta iOS that is solely for bugs throughout iOS, many of which are mail related.

  • "Read Only" permissions issues on some shared items.
  • "Private" events do not always behave properly in MAPI.
  • Sending "on behalf of” has issues. This refers to Delegate behavior.
  • Outlook 2016 standalone/volume licensed versions are not acting as expected.
  • In some cases, "retrieve more from server" using MAPI may cause Outlook to become unresponsive for a period of time, and not return the proper results.
  • External internet calendars will be available in a future Build.
  • Contact Groups are not syncing properly from MAPI and Forwarding Contact Groups is sending as an empty .EML.
  • Importing a PST with Outlook for Windows is allowing messages and objects to exceed the disk space for the mailbox.
  • A user mailbox that is rebuilding will stall the domain user list in webmail until is completed.
  • Display issues in the disk usage report.
  • Outlook notifications for new messages are intermittent in MAPI.
  • Outlook may hang when adding an account on IMAP in some cases. (Unable to reproduce internally.)
  • Flags in IMAP not showing forwards properly.
  • Reports of some headers being lost or truncated when forwarding through IMAP.

  • MAPI folders may become out of sync.
  • Some iOS 13.3 devices are not showing any contacts when synced via EAS. (Unable to reproduce internally.)  Note: iOS has a variety of mail issues unrelated to SmarterMail and is often not upgrading from iOS version to iOS version properly.  We have seen in a number of cases where customers have needed to factory reset their device and restore an iPhone to get full functionality whether on SmarterMail, Microsoft Exchange, or even other mail servers using other protocols. Apple currently has another beta iOS that is solely for bugs throughout iOS, many of which are mail related.
