Comprehensive Outlook integration

Although Outlook is a fully supported email client for use with MDaemon, many users believe that its inbuilt collaboration features can only be 'unlocked' when used in conjunction with an expensive and complex Exchange Server - this is no longer the case.

Outlook Connector is an easy to install plug-in which unlocks these features in Outlook for use with MDaemon - features such as calendar and contact folder sharing, meeting scheduling, 'out of office' auto-responders, centralised data storage and offline working - all without the requirement for Exchange Server.

On networks where Outlook is heavily used, Outlook Connector makes MDaemon a sensible investment in comparison to the costs associated with running an Exchange Server. Organisations value the proven reliability and feature-set of MDaemon over the potentially expensive 'vendor lock-in' that Exchange Server offers.

Easy installation and configuration
Outlook Connector can be installed and configured in just a few moments on an existing MDaemon installation. MDaemon itself can also be installed and configured in just a few minutes - far far quicker and easier than a similar Exchange Server based installation which can take hours and can require extensive configuration.

Server based storage of Outlook profile data
Outlook Connector enabled users store all their Outlook data including email, calendar, contact, task and notes folders centrally on the MDaemon server. This makes backups easier and more reliable whilst removing the need for potentially troublesome local PST files. For performance and compatibility reasons Outlook Connector maintains a local cache on each user's PC - these cache files do not require backing up.

No single database to get corrupted
All data on the MDaemon server is stored in easy to manage folders and files so there is no single big database to become corrupted. So for instance restoring a single user's account data would be a very straightforward process of restoring the required folder from the backup.

'Out of Office' auto-responder support
Outlook Connector enabled users can easily configure their own 'Out of office' auto-responders directly from the Outlook interface and can even schedule when the auto-response should be turned on and off again.

Ability to access public folders such as Calendars, Contacts, Tasks, Notes etc
Centralised server based 'public folders' can easily be created and managed - each folder having its own permissions based access control. Perfect for central shared Calendar, Contacts and Tasks folders.

Ability to share personal folders with other users
Outlook Connector enabled users can share their own personal folders for access by other members in the organisation or access other's folders which have been shared for access by them. Again, permissions on each shared folder can be carefully and easily controlled directly from within Outlook.

Customisable access permissions
All folder sharing is controlled by permissions which are configurable either through the main MDaemon interface or through Outlook itself. Users have full control over their own personal folder permissions but can also be given Administrative permissions on other folders so that they can control those permissions as well.

Ability to view free/busy information and schedule meetings
MDaemon incorporates its own free/busy service which users can configure their Outlook client to use when checking meeting attendee availability.

Support for working offline
Users can switch to offline mode in Outlook allowing them to access previously viewed appointments and read and reply to emails etc while disconnected from the office network. Upon switching back to work online, pending items will be sent and synchronised automatically at the next send/receive.

Encrypted data transfer
Outlook Connector supports SSL based encryption of data transferred between Outlook clients and the MDaemon server ensuring end-to-end security.

Web based access for remote users
When outside the office, users are able to access their Outlook data by logging into MDaemon's sophisticated webmail interface. This interface provides an 'Outlook-a-like' interface accessible from popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox.
