MailStore V13: Suporte aprimorado de serviços em nuvem e autenticação moderna

MailStore

Like many other companies, the MailStore team has spent several weeks working from home during the first half of the year, diligently developing our archiving solutions in the process. The team’s success is underlined by today’s release of MailStore Version 13, which we’d like to present to you now.

With several new features and numerous improvements, our new version will not only please admins but end users and business owners too. “We’ve divided these features into four main categories,” explains Björn Meyn, Product Manager at MailStore. “Firstly, we’ve improved our software’s interaction with the key cloud-based services Microsoft 365 and Google G Suite, ensuring much easier integration with these services. MailStore 13’s second focal point is supporting modern authentication through OAuth2 and OpenID ConnectIncreased security and an improved user experience are our third and fourth main categories. Long-standing MailStore customers will know that we take both these topics very seriously and that they play a major role in absolutely every release.”

 

What Admins Can Expect From V13

MailStore 13 offers several new features and improvements that simplify the work of administrators. Here are some of the features that are particularly relevant for admins:

Improved Support of Cloud-Based Services and Modern Authentication

MailStore Server and the MailStore Service Provider Edition (SPE) now support OAuth2 and OpenID Connect, which significantly enhances MailStore’s integration in the cloud-based environments of Microsoft 365 and Google G Suite. This is good news for admins, as it not only enhances MailStore’s user friendliness in combination with these cloud-based services, but also increases security. Administrators benefit from standardized login policies by being able to use the same settings of their Microsoft 365 or Google G Suite clients for MailStore Server (including e.g. multi-factor authentication) without having to enable legacy authentication or the less secure application access. The new two-step login process emulates the login routines used in modern web applications, and MailStore no longer has to process the passwords of remote users during authentication.

In addition, the new dedicated Microsoft 365 archiving and export profiles make it easier for admins to configure profiles. Here too, the support of modern OAuth2 authentication not only improves security but also integration with Microsoft 365.

Network Share Management

MailStore Server admins now benefit from improved management of network share settings. These settings can now be managed more comfortably and securely via MailStore Server’s Service Configuration rather than via the startup script – e.g. when using a NAS.

Group Policies

Creating group policies for the MailStore Client and the MailStore Outlook Add-in is now easier than ever before: in the case of MailStore Server, the templates are now included in the installation, while in the SPE, they can be downloaded from the Client Access Server’s default page. In Version 13, these templates are available in all languages supported by MailStore.

Certificate Validation

A further improvement for MailStore Server and SPE administrators is the new certificate validation. This has been aligned with the validation process used in most of the important web browsers, enabling administrators to create and implement standardized security and certificate policies for all MailStore clients (MailStore Client, Outlook-Add-in and Web Access).

Encrypted Connections Only

In Version 13, the support of unencrypted connections to MailStore Server has been completely removed. So, administrators can rest assured that all MailStore Server installations permit only encrypted connections with the archive, which can be particularly useful for administrators managing several installations.
