      ignored.

      report might still be sent out (reported by Jeff).

      is reset after 1 day. Should not make a difference


Feb 24, 2009     - (New Installer 1.8.202.0)
   1. Info: Consolidated installer for version 1.8.202 . Contains all of the latest patches and
      updates. You do not need to apply if your system is already updated to version 1.8.202

Feb 19, 2009 - (New Patch 1.8.202.0)
   1. Fixed: MeSenderWhitelist not working correctly when the MailEnable Provider was set
       to use Mysql or SQL Server
   2. Updated: DebugLogs file will NOT have the dateshown in the entry. This will reduce the
       amount of diskspace required for the log files.

Jan 31, 2009 - (New Patch 1.8.201.0)
   1. Fixed: Will not check for MailEnable Sender whitelist if message is outgoing type
2.     Fixed: Permission issues with Sanesecurity Signatures when a rsync occurs.

Jan 20, 2009 - (New Installer 1.8.200.0)
   1. Updated: Sanesecurity signatures are back and stronger than before. There are 2 more
       additional signatures added which would mean better catch rates. The updates are now
       done via rsync (included in installer) which means that after the initial download is
       performed only the changes are downloaded.
       Note:
       - If the Sanesecurity update interval has been set to 0 please set it back to a value other
       than 0 so that updates are received correctly. The recommended setting is to check for
       updates every 8 hours.
       - Rsync that is included run under cygwin. If there are other daemons/services running
       undger cygwin please make sure that you are using the latest version of cygwin
   2. Fixed: Certain URLs might not be correctly whitelisted from URIBL checks although
       they are in the whitelist. The URL whitelist result is logged to a single line so that it is
       shorter and takes up lesser space in log files.
   3. Fixed (thanks Dave): Whitelist/Blacklist values can only use wildcard(*) at the back
       and/or front of an entry. An (*) in anywhere else would cause an error in processing and
       skip all further entries. The system will now checks for such entries when loading and
       bypass these entries to prevent the whitelist/blacklist filter to fail
   4. Fixed : Windows firewall exceptions not automatically added/remove when running the
       installer on Vista/Win2008
   5. Updated: Other minor enhancements and fixes


Jan 13, 2009 - (New Installer 1.8.100.0)
   1. New: MxURI Blacklist Service Cloud. Provides access for Professional users with an
       Active Subscription to query the Private MxUptime URL Blacklist servers. This blacklist
       is designed to catch Spamvertised URLs earlier or that are not caught by SURBL and
       URIBL. Please ensure that the license key details is the same as when you placed your
       order. You can verify the information online by logging in to the customer portal located
       at http://www.mxuptime.com/login.aspx . If you have any firewalls installed please allow
       outgoing HTTP 80 connections from MxScanconfig.exe and MxScanEngine.exe
   2. Updated: Better processing of Spam URLs and detection algorithm optimized
   3. Fixed: Possibility of the MxScanEngine service not starting correctly when the Windows
       application logs are full
   4. Fixed: Better handling of large (>100k) IP Blocklist

   6. Fixed: The URLBL Checks may sometime fail if the primary DNS server is not available
   7. Fixed: Possibility of incorrectly whitelisting certain URL

Dec 15, 2008 - (New installer 1.7.120.0)
   1. Updated: SOSDG has decided not to continue support for their CYGWIN build of

       require a cygwin layer. The clamAv has been updated to version 0.94.2
   2. Updated: Increased disclaimer text size from 1000 characters to 2000 characters
   3. Fixed: Error in Illegal path when moving quarantive messages due to invalid
       AccountName
   4. Updated: Sanesecurity Signatures are not being distributed anymore. It is yet to be seen
       if the project will resume in 2009. The installation will now set the default signature
       updates to disable (set to 0, please do no change this). We have also included the last
       known signatures just prior to the discontinuation. These signatures (included) will still
       work however their effectiveness/catch rate will decline over time.

   1. BREAKING CHANGES: A decision has been made for the Body content to not be
       Indexed in the Archive in order to reduce the amount of disk space required to store the
       archive index database. The old historical index content for the body will be eventually
       removed from the Index Archive. If you want to keep a copy of your previous body
       content index, please make a copy of the mxscan-archive.mdb database. This should
       reduce the size the of the database by half
   2. Improved: MxScan Tab interface reorganized and restructured for a more logical
       organization
   3. New: ClamAV 'FastScan' option which is available if MxScan is used solely for the
       purpose of AntiVirus Scanning. When enabled the MxScan MTA Event will attempt to
       scan messages in realtime without the need to move the messages to the MxScan Holding
       queue. This translates to better IO performance because a round trip is not required.

   5. Improved: An improvement in the processing algorigthm for moving messages in and out
       of the holding queue that results in lesser Disk IO. Messages that are processed by

       log) and uses lesser memory than before

       PostOffice Daily Summary Report was not also enabled

       instead
   10. New: Ability to selectively open and view mxscan transaction log files
   11. Improved: Removal of TqmcubeTrap, Psbl and RatsDyna from RDNSBL for all new
       installation. Will not effect existing installations
   12. Improved: Addition of BRBL and Junkemailfilter to DNSBL for all new installation.
       BRBL will enabled by default with a score of 5.0 points. If you do not wish to have this
       enabled you have to manually disable this via MxScanConfig after upgrading/patching

  1. Fixed: ClientIP valued picked up as null in certain instances

      file instead of the message data when displaying the list of messages in the quarantine.
      However, when the message is double clicked it will display the values from the
      message data instead.
  4. Improved: Can copy to clipboard field values in Quarantine Manager. For example
      sender value can be copied to clipboard and used in the whitelist later
  5. New: Option to use the built MailEnable Ent. sender whitelist values in MxScan
  6. Improved: Added new whitelisted URI for better performance
  7. Updated: New release of Mime Parser DLL
   8. Fixed: Blank lines inserted in URL Whitelist for URLBL in MxScanConfig
   9. Improved: To reduce false positives in DCC Check, enter a score of 0 (zero) disable the
       particular check. There has been some false positives for the Fuz2 check. Alternatively,
       lower the score of the DCC check if false positives is is an issue
   10. Improved: A significant improvement in disk I/O when processing the DCC results
   11. Update: Updated DCC client


August 2, 2008 - (Patch 1.6.720.1)
