Version History

Version 3.2
Date 01 Feb 2011
Fixed: Delivery reports were not delivered for internal messages.
Fixed: AD contacts were treated by the application as internal users.
Fixed: In certain cases the application added the signature to encrypted messages.
Fixed: In very complicated Exchange environments the application may not deliver the messages to distribution groups.
Fixed: When sending a message to the distribution group plus one of its members the message may be delivered duplicated.
Fixed: Messages may not be delivered to members of distribution groups if forwarding is configured between the members of these groups.
Fixed: If non-standard AD attributes were used in the signature (extended AD scheme) the internal users might be treated as external.
Fixed: When testing scenarios in the built-in rule tester based on membership to AD groups, the application returned an error.
Fixed: Statistics files after changing the settings to non-default were reset.
Version 3.1
Date 23 Dec 2009
New: New installer for a desktop installation. It is possible to install the program on a desktop without Exchange. This is useful for customers who want non-admin users without access to Exchange to prepare the settings and footer templates to be later copied to the server.
New: It is possible now to add custom Active Directory fields used by the program. The file containing custom variables named SchemaExtension.txt must be placed in the installation directory of the application. The newly added variables are available in the signature editor after restarting the server.
New: The marker.dat file used to extend the 30-day trial version has been replaced by a temporary license key.
New: It is possible to disable the process of marking the end of the message with a dot sign - SMTP Transparency in the registry.
New: The encrypted and digitally signed messages of the following content type are eliminated from processing: application/x-pkcs12, application/x-pkcs7-certificates, application/x-pkcs7-certificates, application/x-pkcs7-mime, application/x-pkcs7-signature.
Fixed: The problem resulting in messages being not delivered to large distribution groups has been fixed.
Fixed: Exchange Server blocked messages containing large attachments.
Fixed: The mechanism for detection of Exchange server systemic messages has been improved. In the previous versions this could result in errors when synchronizing public folders.
Fixed: The operations on Active Directory groups have been optimized. In the current version the information on the users' membership to Active Directory groups are collected in cache memory. This allows the program not to query Active Directory every time, which improves the performance.
Fixed: The mechanism counting contacts in Active Directory has been improved. In the previous versions Active Directory contacts could were included in the licensing count as Active Directory users if the sender of an incoming message shared the email address with a contact. The contact was then opened in Active Directory based on DN variable of the message sender and treated as a regular user.
Fixed: The footer was inserted for all members of an Active Directory group despite the fact that the group was added to the exceptions to the rule. The error occurred if the message sender address matched the address of a contact in Active Directory. The error has been removed in the current version.
Fixed: The coding of HTML entities has been changed to decimal. This eliminates the problem of incorrect displaying of national characters in some mail clients, e.g. Lotus, Entourage. The default coding format can be changed to hexadecimal by changing the value of 'HexHtmlEntities' in the system registry.
Fixed: In limited instances there was an error with logs growing uncontrollably large. The current version removes this bug.
Fixed: The program did not find a footer in the message if Outlook changed the space sign to " ", which made footer add to the message multiple times.
Fixed: The problem with messages being undelivered to the public folders while the 'Journaling' option is active was removed.

Date 28 Aug 2009
Fixed: Messages sent to Gmail accounts might not leave the server after being stuck in a queue.

Fixed: Occasionally recipients would see blank or incomplete TO or CC fields in received e-mails.
Fixed: Chinese characters were not displayed correctly in RTF messages.

Fixed: In some scenarios, emails would be sent twice to recipients outside of Exchange Organization.
Fixed: The program would crash if the message subject contained Hebrew characters and the phrase based suppressing disclaimers match was activated.
Fixed: It was not possible to select a parent domain for the scope of senders if the program was launched in a sub-domain of the parent domain.

Fixed: Erroneous information related to the license status upon upgrading from 2.0.
Fixed: Problems activating the program under Windows Server 2000.
Fixed: Problems with program performance when 'Do not insert the disclaimer if it is already found in the message' was on - the syndrome of "Messages awaiting directory lookup" queue stacking up.
