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:

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.
