Filter between Active and Suspended users (GWS & M365); optionally disable older versions of TLS and other stuff

MailVault v5.0.6 is available.

This release contains:

  • Segregate between active and suspended users for Google Workspace & Microsoft 365
  • Email accounts in GWS and M365 mail sources made much more responsive
  • Ability to disable older versions of TLS, to enforce greater security
  • Improved validation for SSL certificates
  • Internal enhancements in the cloud storage sub-system
  • Other minor fixes and enhancements

For companies using Google Workspace and Microsoft 365, the ability to filter between active and suspended users makes it convenient to segregate users as needed. Additionally, we have enhanced the email account management in the GWS and M365 mail sources, so even if you are working with thousands of users, MailVault will offer you an extremely responsive user experience.

For maximum operability, MailVault supports multiple versions of the Transport Layer Security protocol. However, some of our customers have security policies that prohibit the use of older versions of TLS. With this release, the admin can turn-off older versions of TLS if needed, thus enhancing security.

When SSL certificates are used with MailVault, the validation process is now friendlier and easier.

The cloud storage sub-system has some internal working improvements.

A few other minor fixes and enhancements complete this release.

An upgraded technology layer, new Email Plus functionality and dedicated support for Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace!

This release contains:

  • Dedicated mail source for Google Workspace (email, drive, calendars, contacts)
  • Technology stack and core libraries updated
  • Minor fixes, enhancements and optimizations

With the new Email Plus functionality, MailVault can now also backup documents, calendars and contacts.

While MailVault has always supported backing up email from Microsoft and Google, v5 offers dedicated support for both these platforms. Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace are now available as dedicated mail and data sources, where you can optionally choose the additional data that you may want backed up for specific, or for all users.

Other minor fixes, enhancements and optimizations make the functioning of MailVault better than earlier. Also the UI has been modified slightly, to allow the more relevant information to be in focus, and for a generally lighter and more pleasing look.

The upgraded technology stack improves performance and sets the stage for more functionality in future versions.

Note for existing v4.x.x users:

Version 5 is a major release. While new users can start using v5 right away, existing users of pre-v5 installations will need to follow a few steps to upgrade and derive the benefits of v5. Detailed information about this has been emailed to existing users. We strongly recommend you go through that before initiating the update. In case you need any technical clarifications or assistance, please get in touch with our Support team.

We hope you enjoy MailVault v5.

As usual, we’d love your feedback and suggestions.
