What's New - Product Updates

Product Release Version 4.10

July 1, 2014

General availability: July 18, 2014. Some features or apps are subject to different release dates.

New Features and General Enhancements

  • NEW: Microsoft Office 365 Web App (available in the Microsoft Office Store).
  • NEW: Out of Office feature now allows users to enter a custom message to inform recipients of their unavailability. This feature is required when the Portal is set to not show the sender’s SMTP addresses, and it bypasses the email server notification that would otherwise expose the SMTP address.

Secure Webmail

  • UPDATED: Message list now caches the first 100 secure messages, allowing for a faster display to improve user experience.
  • UPDATED: Mobile screen available to download the Blackberry 10 and Windows Phone 8 mobile apps.
  • UPDATED: Preference screen now includes the Out of Office settings.
  • FIXED: Issue with the Japanese characters on the profile screen.
  • FIXED: Issue where the activation options were removed for Webmail when a user would change his/her password.

Secure WebApp (New Webmail/iOS/Android/BB10/WP8/O365/Chrome Extension)

  • NEW: Font size selector (Large/Medium/Normal) is now available under the Settings menu to accommodate various types of vision.

  • FIXED: When loaded in landscape mode, the portal icon now has the portal name beside it.

Microsoft Outlook Toolbar/Native Plug-in

  • NEW: Redesigned the rendering of the Delivery Slip, allowing for a faster display to improve user experience. This is Phase 1 of the new upcoming redesign of the Delivery Slip in Outlook.
  • NEW: The Activation/Registration workflow now does not depend on the Outlook account to be present to complete the operation. This addresses multiple issues where the SMTP address could not be obtained for some specific Exchange configurations.
  • NEW: Support is now provided for multiple Exchange accounts under the same Outlook profile.
  • UPDATED: General optimizations in the routines that look for secure messages in Outlook, allowing for a faster display to improve user experience.
