News for October 2007

Postby Elric Pedder » Sun Oct 07th, 2007 11:46am

Hi all,

What's happening with Mailtraq? Here I provide a quick review of our activity and ongoing developments.

SpamAssassin 3.2

Mailtraq supports the latest version of SpamAssassin and now that it is being regularly produced as a Win32 binary there is no longer any need for us to provide our own custom build. You simply install it and tell Mailtraq the path to the spamd.exe file, and it does the rest. The advantage is that administrators can update as often as they wish and have complete control over customisation.

Autoresponder Updates

Mailtraq provides additional tools to ensure that auto responses do not mis-behave or annoy recipients. Every time the auto-responder replies to a message, it caches the return path and will not reply again for a set period of time. Users can add names to a permanent do-not-reply list and Mailtraq can be configured to ignore messages that are sorted into folders other than the Inbox.

SSL

Probably the biggest accomplishment (hitting beta this week) will be SSL/TLS support for SMTP, POP3 and IMAP. The implementations support both implicit and explicit security, meaning that you can either require a completely encrypted session or offer the client the option to upgrade to a secure session within the transaction.

Mailtraq already provides a certificate issuing system producing PKCS#10 requests compatible with all the major certificate authorities.

Greylisting

After putting off this development for some time, it seems we have come around to the idea and now may be a good time to put time into developing this technique. If you have joined the development forum, you can read more in my [url=http://forum.mailtraq.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=910]Greylisting[/url] post.

That's it for now.

Regards,

Would dearly love to see the greylisting post, but we are not authorized to view. Can this be changed?
