IMF Tune v5.5 Release Candidate Now Available
IMF Tune v5.5 Release Candidate, build number 5.5.007.16, is now available for download.
We are very satisfied with the adoption rate of the first v5.5 build and worked on your feedback. The first beta proved to be very solid. This allowed us to focus on implementing the changes most important for a smooth deployment experience.
Below is the list of updates included in this build. If you are exploring version5.5 for the first time check IMF Tune v5.5 BETA - Moderator and Reporting Web Interface for an overview of what's new.
Updated Documentation - In this build you will find the updated IMF Tune Server guide and also a new guide exclusively focusing on the new Moderator/Reporting Web Interface. The new 60 page manual walks you through the installation, configuration and usage of this component.
Missing Default Web Site - The Moderator/Reporting Web component is installed under the IIS Default Web Site. We came across installations where the Default Web Site (created on installing the IIS Web Server), was removed or renamed. The installation now better caters for these scenarios and provides more informative error reporting.
Disabled SQL Authentication - The IMF Tune Quarantine requires that both Windows Authentication and SQL Authentication are enabled at the MS SQL database server. This is also referred to as Mixed Mode Authentication. To better assist you in getting the SQL Authentication mode right, we added an additional test to the IMF Tune Server Registration process. Details on how to enable SQL Authentication are included in the new Moderator/Reporting Manual and in this article.
Opening Email Item gives Not Found Error - In some cases the Moderator was returning a "Not Found" error when attempting to open an Email Item. This problem was experienced on Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 platforms running IIS7/IIS7.5 Web Servers and is now fixed.
Moderator Email Selection from Internet Explorer - The Moderator email list highlights selected email items by changing the background color. This highlighting was not working in a particular case. This problem only concerned Internet Explorer and is now fixed.
Improved Disk Maintenance Performance - As from version 5.5 disk maintenance was extended to also control the growth of the Quarantine Database. We now improved this process to make better use of resources on multiple processor platforms. This improvement is most noticeable in installations with volumes exceeding tens of thousands of emails daily.
