It runs along and with the same "rights" with other services (like SMTP, IMAP, POP3), and can be configured the similar way. No third party servers are required. Currently it is pretty limited: you can only check email, and only in Inbox folder. More, including server administration, is coming in future versions. Both, HTTP and HTTPS are supported;
  • Improved handling of Recommendations, introduced in version 1.1.5.0: Added checking of server certificate, also verifies whether DKIM key pair is set up properly and they match. Also, if there is an error generating recommendations, it stops wherever error occurs, rather than generating an exception and halting the execution;
  • If there is a problem with inserting DKIM Signature, email will be still sent. In previous versions the server was generating and error and not sending the mail.
  • Updated the UI for DKIM section. Listbox of domains, which was rather confusing, was replaced by a dropdown list. Also, now you DKIM settings can be tested on the spot. Uses the same method as recommendations, mentioned above.
