Many of you have asked for it, so I’m happy to announce that Exchange ActiveSync is now available as an add-on enhancement. You can activate this add-on through the Control Panel.
Though Exchange ActiveSync has been supported on SmarterMail for some time, it is only now with changes to how Microsoft licenses this technology that we are able to launch this feature.
For those unfamiliar with Exchange ActiveSync, it is a protocol that has become a de facto standard to sync groupware and mobile devices. With the ActiveSync add-on, your email, contacts, calendar and tasks are synchronized between our mail servers and your mobile device (e.g. your smartphone or tablet) in real time.
ActiveSync includes synchronization support for most mobile devices on the market, including Google Android, Apple iPad and iPhone, Motorola, Nokia, HP, Samsung, LG and Windows Phones.
We know that we are a mobile society and having access to information on-the-go is increasingly important for your business and personal life. So we are glad to be able to make this feature available to help you be even more productive.
One of the few things we all have too little of is time. Pretty sure I haven’t been the only one asking for just an extra hour or two when trying to complete a project around here. So when something new comes along that can save a developer some time, I am all about sharing it.
So let me introduce you to Wiwet.
Wiwet provides simple and customizable ASP.NET templates which are easy to use. With a Wiwet template you can have a project that is professional, clean and ready for any device (desktop, mobile, and tablet) in less than 1 minute. As most of you know, developing something like that can be a four week project, so with Wiwet you can save yourself a month or more of development time and effort. Wiwet templates are also responsive, cross-browser, and retina ready.
Starting today, DiscountASP.NET customers can now receive a 20% discount on Wiwet’s responsive ASP.NET templates. For more information on the 20% discount, visit the Marketplace section of Control Panel
If you weren’t already aware, a bug was found in the SSL v3 protocol that could allow hackers to intercept secure traffic. This exploit renders SSL v3 insecure, and unfortunately it is not something that can be fixed. Since one of our primary goals has always been to run a secure platform, we removed SSL v3 support back in October.
If your application connects to a remote HTTP based API service (through web service, WCF service or REST API), you’ve probably already (or soon will) receive a notice from the provider that they will no longer support SSL version 3.0 due to the security bug.
SQL 2014 has been added as a new option when you order SQL service through Control Panel and all the backup, restore, attach mdf tools are available for it as well.
While we were at it, we also added more flexibility to the DNS Manager. You can now create multiple records with the same name, edit and delete the root domain A record, create CNAMEs with the root domain name – and a lot more.
