MailEnable Features - Administration
MailEnable contains powerful administration features which can be easily administered through a user-friendly
interface (Microsoft Management Console). The interface allows you access to all of the features of MailEnable
including configuration details, services, filters, mailboxes etc.
MailEnable's management console is a responsive and intuitive platform, that presents administrators with inbound and outbound connection
statuses, system usage information, critical server activities and server health reports.
The console equip administrators with powerful features such as the ability to monitor indexing, import domains/users, and
. It also provides the ability to see the current status of the indexing service, as the
number of mailboxes to index and update are shown. Administrators can jump directly to the mailbox location on disk with the addition of a
"View in Explorer"
menu item, and easily find lists, group and directory members with
the addition of a filter.
Enhanced Web Administration
Administer your mail server using web based administration; create users, add post offices, manage lists, groups and contacts.
Enterprise web administration includes several additional features including search capabilities for users/domains and the ability to
manage all post offices from a single log-in. If you are hosting multiple post offices (e.g: one per customer or company), each company
can be granted permissions to manage their own configuration.

Remote administration allows you to connect to a remote machine or cluster via the administration interface.
You can then add these remote servers to the administration program for ease of access, and manage them in the
same way as your local machines.

MailEnable - Alerting & Monitoring
System Alerting & Monitoring
MailEnable includes a monitoring agent that checks system health and can notify an email address of any problems that are detected,
such as a large amount of email going through the system, or service failure.
Monitoring tools are also provided which allow you to easily review the status of the messaging subsystem. You can
access the system overview console and can review which accounts are generating the most activity. This allows administrators to identify any
accounts that are being abused and to take an appropriate action.
MailEnable - Priority & Bulk Email Queues
Messages that are sent out as bulk e-mail or are part of an e-mail campaign can now be assigned to a bulk mail queue.
This means that bulk mail outs are less likely to impact on the delivery of regular e-mail.
Also, an administrator is able to designate users whose messages should be sent with Priority. Messages sent by these
users are placed in a Priority queue so that they receive preferential treatment over other messages.
Dashboard, Monitoring and Abuse Protection
When you login to the MailEnable Management Console, you will be presented with a dashboard providing a report on critical server
activity and server health.
This significantly reduces the need to review MailEnable's logs or the Windows Event Viewer for errors or events.
It will analyze behavior and will raise events for the review of the system administrator.
Version 7 also includes some significant improvements to spam filtering, providing real time statistics as well as integration with SpamAssassin.
MailEnable MMC - Provisioning
When new postoffices/organizations are created, MailEnable will attempt to automatically provision DNS and IIS with the appropriate
Administrators can set up default values and customize settings when new organizations are created. These values are then applied
when new postoffices and mailboxes are created (ie. you can configure templates for postoffice and mailbox creation).
The provisioning function also allows you to define custom actions that can be taken when new postoffices/ organisations are created or
removed from the platform.
Service Autodiscovery Management
provides a simple Autodiscovery Configuration Manager, allowing you to configure the settings returned to devices when users attempt to set up new accounts.
Settings for autodiscovery can be configured on a per domain basis for an array of services including IMAP, POP, SMTP, CalDAV, CardDAV and ActiveSync.
This new feature means that end users will simply need to enter their email address and password on the device and the server and port settings will be automatically configured on the client.

MailEnable Management - Greylisting SPF Exclusion
Greylisting SPF Exclusions by Domain
Greylisting is the most effective single mechanism of reducing spam, but its effectiveness has been limited by delaying legitimate messages (particularly
from large service providers like Gmail and Yahoo!). With MailEnable, domains that have SPF records can be whitelisted, significantly
improving the effectiveness of Greylisting.
Country Code Blocking
Administrators have the ability to block incoming communications from certain countries by targeting specific country codes. This allows the admin
to block potentially harmful or unwanted data from suspicious sources.
Users can specify strings for the SMTP service that will allow it to drop connections when connections use specific EHLO values.
MailEnable Management - Country Code Blocking
Automated Account Creation on Apple Devices
also includes "one-click" configuration for Apple iOS devices. Setting up an iPhone account is now automated whether you are using Exchange ActiveSync or CalDAV / CardDAV / IMAP.
This feature means that mail users can now configure their iOS device with CalDAV / CardDAV / IMAP as a single service, simply by clicking on a link within Webmail or Mobile Webmail.
Administrators can also provide a link for Apple users to click on which will automatically configure their device.
Mobile Management & Administration
MailEnable Enterprise Premium now includes a Mobile Web Administration client.
The client automatically detects connections on a mobile device and allows the user to access a cutdown and streamlined version of MailEnable's Web Administration.
This means that system administrators can review the health of their server and execute simple management tasks on their mobile devices.
MailEnable Migration Centre
MailEnable's Migration Centre provides a simple solution for migrating from legacy e-mail systems.
Using the migration console, it is possible to import mail for a single user, organization or entire server from a remote messaging platform.
Skin Catalogue Manager
MMC3 includes a Skin Catalogue Manager which provides access to a library of skins that can be chosen and installed (and uninstalled)
on the platform.
