DirectAdmin

New MailScanner Front-End (MSFE) v9.19

Changes:

  • Added workaround if MySQL socket access fails. Creating the following file will force mailcontrol to use TCP access on 127.0.0.1 instead of the unix socket:
    /usr/msfe/mailcontrol/mysql.sock.disable
  • If /var/log/maillog does not exists but /var/log/mail.log does, then use that for the tail maillog command in the UI

New MailScanner Front-End (MSFE) v9.09

Changes:

  • Improved cPanel perl version checking on install to ensure cPanel perl rpms are installed
  • Fixed issue on DA where PATH does not contain /usr/sbin/ preventing csf blocking from within MailControl
  • Updated cPanel end-user UI config allowed_parents with the latest perl version to fix message downloading

New MailScanner Front-End (MSFE) v9.01

Changes:

  • Modified dbadd.pl to better determine MySQL credentials and prevent exposing those credentials

  • Convert MSFE UI to use the csget mechanism for checking new versions
  • On DirectAdmin add MailScanner to Service List
  • Fixed DirectAdmin admin UI display issues
  • Fixed end user UI display issues
  • Fixed end user UI perl module installation on DirectAdmin that could use the incorrect package name

  • Added support for SpamBox delivery to <mailbox>.spam folder (SpamBox) on cPanel and DirectAdmin

  • Removed use of Mail::Sender as it is now deprecated
  • Moved /usr/mscpanel to /usr/msfe (symlink added for backwards compatibility)

New MailScanner Installer (msinstall) v5.00

Coming Soon…

Wondering what we’re currently developing?

We are getting close to releasing new versions of our MailScanner installer and MailScanner Front-End. This will include:

  1. The latest version of MailScanner from source with our tweaks
  2. Spambox support (spam is delivered to the users Spam subfolder) which is enabled for the installation, plus on a per domain basis by the user
  3. DirectAdmin beta support, this includes installing MailScanner plus our Admin and end-User UI’s
  4. New exim integration for cPanel (and required for DirectAdmin) using Exims Named Queues. This allows for a very simple Exim integration which only scans relayed SMTP email. This reduces server load and can improve stability because: It only requires a single exim process, rather than the current two; only SMTP email is scanned (not outgoing via the exim binary); does not rely on Control Panel integration setup for Exim
  5. MySQL v8 support
  6. RHEL/CentOS/CL v8 support

The development work has been completed, testing and bug fixing is currently in progress and we’re hoping to release by the end of this month.

We are taking a short break and will close the store, helpdesk and email from Wednesday, 30 November through Tuesday, 6 December 2022.

If you purchase a license or Service Package before the closing date and require installation, please be sure to leave at least 24 hours before then for the work to be done. Otherwise, any work will be scheduled for after this period. We will reopen on Wednesday, 7 December 2022.
