Mobile Device Management
Looking for wireless access to email, calendar, contacts, or tasks using your mobile device? MDaemon Messaging Server works with many popular mobile devices, so that regardless of platform you will have access to your important information wherever you are.
Mobile Device Management for BYOD Environments
MDaemon Messaging Server includes a single interface to easily manage the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments of SMB /SMEs. Smartphones and tablets that run Android, iOS, Windows and BlackBerry can be managed from a single user interface within MDaemon's console or via its remote administration client (WebAdmin). Devices can be managed via Microsoft ActiveSync® or MDaemon's integrated BES. With either, IT policies can be configured to require a password, lock the device after a period of inactivity, or wipe lost or stolen devices, or you can create custom policies to fit your environment.
WorldClient for Mobile
The WorldClient (MDaemon's Web-Based Email Client) Mobile theme allows MDaemon users to access their email, calendar, contacts, tasks and notes on their smartphone or tablet. The WorldClient Mobile theme is optimized for smaller screens.
Remote Mobile Device Management
All mobile device management features, including ActiveSync, SyncML, BIS and BES, can be configured from within the Mobile Device Management menu in MDaemon Remote Admin (WebAdmin).
Connect with ActiveSync for MDaemon
MDaemon Messaging Server* includes support for the latest version of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) (2.5, 12.1, 14.0, and 14.1 Protocols), which is a separately licensed ActiveSync (AirSync) server. ActiveSync provides native synchronization of a user's default email, calendar, contacts, and tasks data between the MDaemon server, WorldClient (MDaemon's web-based email client) or Outlook (using the Outlook Connector plug-in) account and an ActiveSync capable device. Other features include: Customizable Device IT Policies, Remote Wipe, Autodiscovery, Multiple Folder Synchronization, Global Address Lookup, SSL Encrypted Transmissions, Device Whitelists and Blacklists, Forgetting Inactive Devices, and Device Protocol Restrictions.
ActiveSync provides the highest level of integration for the latest mobile devices, including iPhone / iPad, BlackBerry 10, Android, and Windows Mobile / Windows Phone. It is also available on most other mobile platforms. ActiveSync also minimizes the amount of data that is sent over the mobile network.
Along with native synchronization of a user's default email, calendar, contacts, and tasks data, ActiveSync for MDaemon also includes the following features:
Multiple Devices under One Account
Many people commonly have more than one mobile device. With ActiveSync for MDaemon, any user can have multiple devices of any make/model on a single account, making it easy to sync all your MDaemon email, calendar, contacts, and tasks.
ActiveSync for MDaemon uses Push email technology that provides an always-on capability, in which new email is actively transferred (pushed) to the device after it is received by the MDaemon mail server.
Customizable Device IT Policies
Enhance your mobile device security through ActiveSync policies. You can manage pre-defined policies and create your own policies from the Mobile Device Management screen. Policies can be created from many options*, including:
*Note: Not all ActiveSync devices recognize or apply policy consistently. Some may ignore policy altogether and others may require a device reboot before changes take effect (defeating the purpose of many of the policy elements). Also, no policy is applied until the next time the device connects on its own to the ActiveSync server.
If a device is lost or stolen, the MDaemon administrator can use the Wipe command to erase all data on the device, or restore the device to its factory default state.
Autodiscover (or Auto Detect) Service: A user can easily create an account on their mobile device by entering their email and password. They do not need to know their server name to setup the email service. The feature facilitates the discovery of core account configuration information by using the user's SMTP address as the primary input, which significantly simplifies the configuration of mobile devices.
Multiple Folder Synchronization
ActiveSync bundles all sync requests together instead of doing a sync for each folder separately, so battery life and data won't be consumed constantly and there's far lower message delivery latency.
Global Address Lookup
Global Address List (GAL), also known as Global Address Book, contains contact info and other resources associated with a contact to enable your MDaemon users to look up your other MDaemon users' contact info.
SSL Encrypted Transmissions
Short for Secure Sockets Layer, it's used for transmitting private data securly. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data - a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message. ActiveSync for MDaemon uses SSL encrypted transmissions to send all of its data between MDaemon mail server and your mobile devices.
Device Whitelists and Blacklists
ActiveSync supports a device ID, device type, and device OS whitelist and blacklist. You can whitelist or blacklist devices based on their ID, type, and OS values.
Forgetting Inactive Devices
The ActiveSync Options screen will let you specify the number of days of inactivity after which MDaemon will forget about a particular device. This setting defaults to 31 days. When MDaemon forgets a device, it means that any previous configuration and/or access history is discarded. The next time the device connects it will be forced to re-provision if a policy is in place at the domain level, perform an initial folder sync, and re-sync all subscribed folders. This helps to keep your installation clean from having a lot of old/retired/ unused devices. As part of the daily cleanup event, MDaemon will check all devices for inactivity.
Device Protocol Restrictions
The Restrictions screen lets you specify User Agent and Device Type values and restrict devices matching those values to one or more specific versions of ActiveSync (choose from 2.5, 12.1, 14.0, and 14.1 Protocols). The ActiveSync server will communicate with matching devices using only the selected protocol version(s).
ActiveSync for MDaemon Device Setup
ActiveSync for MDaemon installs along with MDaemon but it is a separate product from MDaemon and will only run as a trial for 60 days. After that, a one-time fee is required. The trial begins when you install MDaemon and enable ActiveSync for the first time.
*ActiveSync does not work with MDaemon Standard version.
Connect with IMAP
MDaemon mail server provides IMAP support for mobility, message folder sharing, and even email account sharing by multiple users, plus the centralized storage, filtering, and manipulation of messages in private, shared, and public folders on the email server. The IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) allows the users to work with their messages in both online and offline modes. The IMAP-capable device retrieves the messages' headers from MDaemon and stores a local copy. All the messages are left on MDaemon mail server until they are deleted by the user.
Connect with POP3
POP3 (Post Office Protocol version 3) allows users to retrieve e-mail messages, with any device, from the MDaemon mail server. Once the email messages are downloaded from MDaemon they can be modified, read and manipulated offline.
Connect with SyncML
MDaemon includes a built-in SyncML server. SyncML allows you to synchronize your contacts, tasks, and calendar events with any device that supports SyncML.
