  • Added: Expired password grid on Password Requirements pages for both System and Domain settings.
  • Added: Password requirement support added for domain administrators.

  • Changed: When a user marks/unmarks a Trusted Sender, entries will be added/removed based on the DMARC results of that email.
  • Changed: When an email's Trusted Sender status cannot be verified due to the DMARC results, the email header now shows the email as being from a Trusted Sender and shows the reason the spam weight was still applied.

  • Fixed: Deleting/renaming a category in webmail updates affected messages but doesn't notify IMAP clients.
  • Fixed: Delivery logs have "Index was outside the bounds of the array" exception.
  • Fixed: Domains in a 'Failed to Load' state require a detach/attach versus reload once their JSON files have been repaired.
  • Fixed: Embedded signature images cause unexpected behavior with the attachment count and broken embedded images in webmail.
  • Fixed: EWS time zones in all-day appointments can be improperly defined in iCal data.
  • Fixed: For some emails, the attachment icon doesn't appear in MAPI, EAS, and EWS clients.

Password issue fixed.  SPF issue fixed.  We are running this version smoothly tonight.
For now it works well, I will report if I have any problems.
