MailEnable Webmail Server
Webmail Calendar allows you to manage your appointments via drag drop and inline editing. It also supports calendar overlays to allow simultaneous viewing (side-by-side) of shared calendars.
With powerful synchronization technology such as the MAPI Connector for Outlook, CalDAV and SyncML for mobile devices (eg. iPhones, iPads, Androids and PDA’s), your appointments are synchronized automatically wherever you are, and always up to date.
Webmail provides the ability to manage all your contacts and groups in your web browser, just as you would with standard email clients. You can add/delete contacts, or import existing contacts from other email clients like Outlook, as CSV files.
Webmail also provides the ability to add pictures to contacts. which can also be synchronized across Outlook and mobile devices via MAPI Connector. CardDAV. or SyncML services. Contact pictures can be associated with entries in the global directory, and users are able to update their directory image and contact details under Options in Webmail.
When the mouse cursor hovers over the address field in the message header of the preview pane, an Inline Contact Card will appear, overlaying above the message header,

displaying a quick snapshot of the contact details, including the contact picture. If the sender address does not exist in the Address Book, then the Inline Contact Card also provides other action buttons, such as Compose New Email, View Contact Details, or Add to Whitelist.
Webmail is also device-aware, and will optimize its interface to better suit the client browser. The Webmail application attempts to detect touch-screen clients (like the Apple iPhone and iPad), and will adapt its interface to adjust resolution and change its scroll behaviour.
Users can now export all their contacts as a CSV file (Outlook compatible format) with a simple click of a button. Extra contact fields are also supported for imports.
Appointment Scheduling Invitations
Like Outlook, MailEnable Webmail Calendar allows users to setup send appoinment invitations. You can schedule a meeting with others in the office, and they will receive an invitation in their inbox. They then have the option to deny your invitation, suggest another time that suits them better, or accept, in which case the appointment is immediately added in to their calendar.
From your meeting invitation in your calendar, you can track the responses of the participants you sent invitations to. See how many people you are expecting, and whether a critical person is unable to attend so you can reschedule if necessary.

Set Out-of-Office Start/End Date Time
Users can now set a start/end date and time for their autoresponder, to more accurately target a specific time frame where they want to activate the autoresponder.
This feature is available in Webmail as well as for the Outlook/MAPI Connector.
Postoffices/Domains that are bound to an IP address can now be configured to smarthost all the outbound email for that domain to the one remote host.
My Files is a server hosted file storage feature available from MailEnable Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition. The MAPI connector integrates with this feature, providing access through Outlook to your My Files storage on the server. Your files will be listed in Outlook, with easy preview capability of most file types, including images, video, audio and office documents.
Perhaps the best thing about this feature is the ease of uploading files from your desktop computer to the mail server, via Outlook. You can simply drag and drop a file from your computer disk onto the My Files store in Outlook to send it to your mail account.
If you have just imported a set of photos from your digital camera onto your computer, you can select them all, and with one drag of the mouse, host them all on your My Files area. And of course, when you connect to your account in Webmail, all your newly uploaded files will appear there.

MP3 Media Player
Webmail has been enhanced to allow interactive inline streaming of audio files (MP3’s). Messages containing MP3 file attachments can now be previewed and streamed instantaneously within the Webmail client.
Users are also able to preview and stream MP3 files directly from their “My Files” storage folders.
The MP3 Media Player will stay appeared on an unobtrusive position in Webmail, to allow the user to multitask and continue doing other activities in Webmail whilst listening to MP3’s, such as viewing/composing messages, create appointments, contacts, and tasks.
This feature requires the Adobe Flash Player for web browsers to be installed on the client machine.
Public folders are visible to all IMAP users in a specific postoffice, thereby allowing information to be stored centrally and made available to everyone on the system. This might include documentation on policy and procedures or internal memos.
Collaborate with other Webmail users by easily connecting to other user’s resources, including calendar, contacts, mailboxes and folders with granted access. Webmail provides the ability to configure sharing permissions, you can even grant full write access to persons such as a secretary or personal assistant.
Add Recipients as New Contacts After Sending
Webmail now provides the ability to add new recipient contacts to their Address Book after sending a message.
When this option is enabled (via “Options Mail”), Webmail will prompt the user whether to quickly add any recipient contacts that are not already in the Address Book as new contacts, after a message has been sent.
Users have the ability to specify which email addresses to add when sending messages to multiple recipients, and can also quickly input first/last names for these new contacts on the spot.
