New IMF Tune v4.0 Release Candidate Build

May 27, 2008

IMF Tune v4.0 reached Release Candidate stage. This is significant since it clears all pending issues that we had in IMF Tune v4.0 BETAs. We plan to collect more feedback on this release and aim to reach Final Release in the next few weeks.

A very important change in this build relates to Licensing. This is the first IMF Tune v4.0 build that can be fully licensed. Previous v4.0 BETA builds only supported Evaluation License keys. Thus all BETA builds must be upgraded in order for them to be licensed beyond evaluation. In this regard, in the next few days we plan to start distributing IMF Tune v4.0 upgrade licenses to all clients holding a valid Maintenance Agreement.

Here is the list of changes for this build:

  1. Full Licensing Support. Build is the first v4.0 build that can be fully licensed for usage beyond evaluation.

  2. IMF Tune IMFTBak.exe Restore/Replication problems. A problem in IMFTBak was causing the tool to fail on performing a Restore or a Replication.

  3. IMF Tune could fail to enforce white/black lists and SCL Rules. The problem in v4.0 BETA Build, could be triggered in configurations where a white/black list is enabled but left empty.

  4. Exchange 2007 automatic problem detection. IMF Tune v4.0 will now automatically perform a number of checks to verify the Exchange 2007 Server configuration so as to identify any potential problems. This detection process is run whenever opening the IMF Tune configuration and is very similar to what we already have in case of Exchange 2003. Some of the test that are performed include:

    • Verify that the MS Exchange Content Filter Agent is Installed and enabled

    • Verify that the Transport Agent priority is correct, such that the MS Content Filter processes emails before IMF Tune

    • Verify that the MS Content Filter is not configured to Delete, Reject or Quarantine any emails (these operations should instead be configured at IMF Tune)

  5. Mandatory Local Domain List Configuration. In IMF Tune v3.0 it was possible to run IMF Tune on a user limited license without configuring the list of licensed domains. This is not allowed in IMF Tune v4.0 any longer. On entering a user limited license, the configuration will require the domain list to be configured.

Upgrading to IMF Tune v4.0

Upgrading to IMF Tune v4.0 may involve an in-place upgrade or a move to new server hardware. This is especially true because IMF Tune v4.0 now supports both Exchange 2003 and 2007. Since Exchange 2007 requires a migration to a 64-bit platform, in this case IMF Tune would also need to move along.
