MDaemon v12 - BlackBerry Edition - 2011-02-25

MDaemon® v12 - BlackBerry® Edition

Benson & Associates is happy to announce that we are the first Managed Service Provider to implement the exciting new MDaemon® v12 - BlackBerry® Edition - the first and only mail server on the market today with complete BlackBerry smartphone synchronization - right out of the box. No plugins, addons or third party software required!

It's a one of a kind messaging solution that small and medium sized businesses have been waiting for. It offers a feature-rich email platform at a low cost, providing the essential business tools employees need to stay productive. MDaemon Messaging Server, BlackBerry Edition also provides the easy installation and management that you're looking for. 

One install wizard gets you up and running quickly, and one simple management console makes it easy to control both email and BlackBerry smartphone functionality. BlackBerry IT policies regulate BlackBerry smartphone usage, world-renowned security accreditations attest to the high level of security that protects company information, and BlackBerry push technology and wireless synchronization helps keep businesses competitive. Data transmitted between the BlackBerry smartphone and the messaging server is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES).
You can also remotely lock or erase data on BlackBerry smartphones, adding another layer of protection that will help provide peace of mind. MDaemon Messaging Server, BlackBerry Edition is an all-in-one solution designed to help businesses work smarter, not harder.

Some of the highlights of this much anticipated program:

  • Advanced security functionality using DKIM, SenderID for authentication and verification, anti-spam engine, Bayesian filtering, SSL/TLS, backscatter protection, and an additional layer of proactive malware protection (via SecurityPlus plug-in).
  • Custom scheduling and mail queuing for more flexible outbound mail management.
  • Mobility enabled to support other smart phone devices (Windows Mobile®, Palm®, Symbian®, or Apple) via the ActiveSync® for MDaemon application.
  • Integrated Messaging Client.  Provides email and calendar notification with highly secure Instant Messaging for complete and flexible inter-office communications.
  • Collaboration. Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes and Journal.  Supports Microsoft® Outlook® via the Outlook Connector for MDaemon application.
  • Easy Administration and Maintenance.  Intuitive, tasked-based GUI, easy account database integration (via Active Directory, LDAP, ODBC, or MDaemon's Minger verification), plus simple back-up and restore with detailed logs for troubleshooting.
  • Remote Access.  Access email from almost anywhere using the integrated web mail client or perform remote account management from the administrative application.
  • Powerful Mail List Engine.  Create and manage bulletins, discussions, and distribution lists easily to effectively communicate on multiple levels.
