    "We all know that when MAIL security is enabled we need to create a smtp user on the ASG and that user will be use for the roaming users." - Can you say that in a different way, I don't understand. Thanks - Bob

    Aaron, is this a fairly new installation? We're not seeing that many false positives after the first few weeks when people populate their whitelists.

    What problem are you trying to address? How is this different from existing functionality?

    How does this add functionality to what can already be done with most email clients ("signature" for Outlook)?

    Sascha, what effort would this alleviate? If individuals want to make their own decision about using encryption, isn't that already available with most mail clients?

    This might be a reason for me to enable caching. At present, I have it disabled everywhere since my impression is that cache provides little benefit today, yet providing it with the Astaro exposes the admin to additional effort.

    Daniiel, I'm not familiar with this. When you query for a name with multiple IPs, does the DNS return all of the IPs, one IP in a round-robin, the first one if it's "live" or ???

    Thanks - Bob

    What do you need that you can't achieve with an Exception?

    This was prompted by a discussion on the beta BB between BarryG, wingman and Billybob.

    Pieter, have you asked about this on the User BB?

    I think this isnt a feature request, but a BUG in the current implementation. Lists were always sorted prior to about 7.3. I would urge people to enter a support ticket to Astaro asking that the list sorts be fixed.

    I guess I don't understand why this would be needed or desirable.

    Scott, I thought the EU was stricter on this than we are, and that that was the reason for the anonymization in Web Security reporting. It seems like the same thing could work for IM/P2P. The other comment I'd make is that all of our government and education clients now must archive every email they receive, so I don't think it will be too long before tweets and IMs are included.

    Michael, I think your English says everything you've said in German.

    Wingman, that sounds like a full-time job! What problem would that solve?

    This is a great idea to mix with the one about being able to print out the configuration. What a great tool for tech support! My wife wrote a "sysinfo" script for IBM AIX boxes so she can get a quick look at what's happenning when people need help.

    An Astaro "Auditor" program would be much better than the raw information one gets from 'Config dump'.

    Practically speaking, there are some well-know mistakes that can be made, and some already receive warnings in WebAdmin. I suspect there are many more one could check for if one weren't concerned about mucking up the programming in the product.
