Version 8.55 includes some significant feature additions, improvements and fixes.
In particular, mail users are now able to review client configuration settings under the Options menu within WebMail.
This feature is provided to simplify the process of configuring user devices.
The update also includes the following additions/changes (for a comprehensive list please review the release notes):
- ADD: Connection settings for Mail Protocols/Services are now shown under WebMail Options menu (they are either detected or can be configured on a Domain basis).
ADD: Added client IP, authenticating user, and authentication status in the queued Message Details window within the MMC Admin.
ADD: Added Block IP to the MMC Admin queued Message Details screen (so you can block the client IP address from connecting to the SMTP service)
ADD: Added Disable Mailbox from the queued Message Details screen (an administrator can disable a mailbox directly from the Message Details screen)
ADD: Added View Send History (so an administrator can view the send history from within the queued Message Details screen)

FIX: VCF files directly copied to Contacts folder would not display if the .VCF extension was in lower case

FIX: ActiveSync would not use Mailbox TimeZone setting as the default when viewing Free and Busy times of All Day Events
