MailBee.NET Objects v10 adds async/await and Xamarin support

October 22, 2015
We've just released the new version of MailBee.NET Objects library, packed with a bunch of new features and improvements. The most important are:
  • async/await companions (in .NET 4.5 style) for the library's methods which are doing network or fiIe I/O. They are truly async inside out resulting in better scalability and responsivity of your applications. See WinForms .NET 4.5 and ASP.NET 2013 projects in My Documents\MailBee.NET Objects\Samples for async examples.
  • .DLLs for Xamarin Mono, Android and iOS. Now you can utilize MailBee.NET Objects on Windows, Linux and most popular mobile platforms.
  • Newly added TLS 1.1/1.2 support for SSL connections is crucial as TLS 1.0 is no longer considered strong.
  • Improved network I/O performance.
  • Bounce database in memory or single file (earlier, the representation in the form of a directory tree of XML files was the only option).
  • See Version History to get the full list of changes.

WebMail Pro 7.6.3 offers developers the ability to create apps!

October 15, 2015
The just released WebMail Pro v7.6.3 makes developer's life easier with these cool features:
  • The ability to integrate third-party or your own applications as IFRAME in WebMail Pro. These apps can work on any server and be written in any programming language. WebMail Pro provides secure means of passing the current user context to your app and access to HTTP API.
  • New easy to use HTTP PUT method of uploading files in Files storage and attachments for composing new messages.
  • Master password concept for accessing user accounts via API without knowing their passwords.
Here you can read more on the new API stuff:

Aurora 7.6 and WebMail Pro 7.6 Released

July 20, 2015
The just released new versions of Aurora business messaging platform and WebMail Pro PHP webmail client support 2-Step Verification, OAuth 2.0, external cloud storage and social network integration.

2-Step Verification (Two Factor Authentication, 2FA) lets your users guard access to their accounts with an extra step of entering a PIN code during the login process. The current implementation supports:
  • Generic 2FA (where the PIN can be generated with Google Authentication and similar apps)
  • service which allows for centralized management of users and extra methods of PIN code delivery (e.g. SMS)
  • More 2FA methods can be added with plugins
Aurora now lets you invite new users via their external e-mail addresses. The user gets an invitation via e-mail in their mail client, opens the link - and voila, they are Aurora user now! This also means e-mail module is now optional for Aurora - you can have users which only need non-mail services of Aurora (Contacts, Calendar, Files and so on).


WebMail Pro v7.5 with REST API and new compose screen

March 25, 2015
The new WebMail Pro release adds a lot of both end user features and functionality intended for developers. The most notable improvements include the new popup-based message compose screen and REST API.

Users can now minimize compose window and then return to editing at any time, with just a single click. Users which added multiple identities can now change the default identity - another method of improving productivity for those who routinely create lots of messages everyday.

New design of tooltips, VCF/CSV import of contacts from your desktop on Contacts screen and message threading enhancements are also worth mentioning. Overall performance of the user interface has been improved as well, especially opening a message in a new tab and working with accounts having large numbers of folders.

From the developer's and administrator's perspective, the key changes include REST API, revised login mechanism via POST query, the option to automatically redirect from HTTP to HTTPS, and account password change via LDAP.

REST API lets applications and web sites perform WebMail Pro account and domain management tasks from any location, with any programming language. POST login mechanism now includes error checking.

The plugin to change account password via LDAP can be useful if your users' accounts can be manipulated with LDAP queries. The plugin can be easily adapted for your particular LDAP schema and infrastructure. Authentication via LDAP plugin is available as well. Another cool plugin lets you add your custom content on the login screen.

If your server supports HTTPS, you can now force WebMail Pro to automatically redirect to HTTPS if the user entered plain HTTP URL to your installation. This is especially useful as users normally enter just a website name with no protocol specifier while the modern browsers still tend to try plain HTTP by default, even if HTTPS version of the same URL is available. To enable this, set <RedirectToHttps>On</RedirectToHttps> in settings.xml.

And there are more than a hundred of other fixes and improvements. Give it a try to see it in action!


MailBee Objects v9 with major IMAP enhancements

February 2, 2015
This week, we updated MailBee Objects - the ActiveX version of our e-mail components suite. MailBee Objects v9 adds support of a number of modern IMAP extensions, STATUS command, message sets. Besides IMAP, the new version delivers improved message parsing and attachment processing, Authenticode digital signatures, revised samples.

IMAP component now supports MOVE (moving messages between folders), SPECIAL-USE and CHILDREN (special folder flags), SORT (sorting search results). IMAP QUOTA extension can now deliver both allocated and actually used account space. Please note that these extensions can only be used if supported by your IMAP server.

Also, IMAP component now lets you use STATUS command to get the statistics for any folder, records UNSEEN and UIDNEXT updates sent by the server, provides more control on whether downloading messages must set Seen flag or not.

Message sets is another key feature of IMAP component. You can now request arbitrary sets of messages or envelopes to be processed by any request. This makes it faster to process messages filtered by certain criteria (e.g. you first make search query to get all unread messages, convert the resulting array into a message set and finally get envelopes for all unread messages as a single batch, no need to download each envelope via a separate command). When dealing with lots of messages, this may speed things up by an order of magnitude.

MIME and IMAP parser introduces AddressDelimiter property (Message.AddressDelimiter and Envelope.AddressDelimiter). This property makes it easier to split e-mail address strings into arrays of individual addresses or friendly names.

Attachment.Filename is now never empty. MailBee will autogenerate the name when it's missing in the message. New Attachment.FilenameAsIs property lets you find out the original filename (probably empty).

SMTP component now uses local host of the sending machine as EHLO argument. This may help with the SMTP servers which strictly check this value (anyway, you can still assign it manually).


MailBee.NET Objects v9 release brings OAuth 2.0 support to a new level

January 30, 2015
The new MailBee.NET Objects version delivers a good deal of features and fixes but most importanly - mature OAuth 2.0 support, full FIPS 140-2 compatibility, and NuGet integration.

The extensive set of new samples and tutorials will let you build modern OAuth 2.0 enabled applications for Windows and web using the latest tools and frameworks from Microsoft and Google: ASP.NET MVC 5.2, Google APIs 1.9, ASP.NET Identity 2.1.


New WebMail Pro PHP v7.4.2 released

December 2, 2014
The recent WebMail Pro PHP release adds new ways to export and import data from and into the system, as well as new admin options and user interface improvements.

Users can now drag-n-drop ICS files in iCal format right into calendar, or use Import ICS file command for that. Another new option is VCF/vCard export and import in Contacts. Finally, it's now possible to drag-n-drop .EML files to have them added into the currently selected mail folder - a convenient method of loading data from desktop mail client.

New admin features include the ability to enable automatic redirect to HTTPS (RedirectToHttps option in settings.xml), X-Frame-Options in config.php to prevent clickjacking attacks, an option to set port number for external IMAP/SMTP server names (used for iOS profiles).

And as always, there are dozens of minor improvements, performance optimizations and bug fixes. You can see the changelog for more details.

Here are the links:


WebMail Pro v7.4.1 with dynamic favicon and MS documents preview

October 28, 2014
The new WebMail Pro release lets your users view .doc, .docx, .xls, xlsx and other popular Microsoft file formats right in the browser. You can read more if interested.

Dynamic favicon is another cool feature of the new version. You'll never miss a new email with a red number of unseen messages right in the favicon, even if you have many browser tabs opened.

Other improvements include the new design of New Contact button, a setting to request association with mailto links, mail precaching optimizations, and miscellaneous bugfixes.


AfterLogic Aurora 7.4 with OpenPGP, shared contacts, new skins

September 18, 2014
This week we released the new version of our flagship groupware and business e-mail platform, AfterLogic Aurora. It delivers:

  • OpenPGP support

  • Google Drive and Dropbox integration
  • New skins
  • Shared address book with CardDAV sync
  • New ways to export and import contacts and calendar data
  • Branding with your own logo
  • Desktop notifications
  • Download e-mail as PDF file
  • Compose e-mail in RTL mode (for Arabic and Hebrew)


WebMail Pro v7.4 adds OpenPGP, files storage, and new skins

September 10, 2014
The summer is over and the new major WebMail Pro release is here now. OpenPGP, files storage, Google Drive and Dropbox integration, branding, ownCloud SSO, desktop notifications, and a number of new skins - these are the cool new features and enhancements that kept us busy. The new WebMail Pro version adds them all and also provides dozens of smaller improvements, features and fixes.

OpenPGP support enables a secure way of communication in the today's world where Big Brother is real. And very curious on what's in your e-mail. WebMail Pro addresses this by providing entirely browser-based PGP functionality which lets users exchange secure e-mail messages without the need to trust the mail server or any other gateway or transport between you and your party.

In short, neither decrypted messages nor PGP keys never transmitted to the server for encryption, decryption or storage purposes. It's all done client-side.

In contrast to the stern world of e-mail security, a new set of skins is full of fun and color. Hope your users will enjoy them! You can also put your own logo with the new Branding section in Admin Panel.

Files module is a new big set of functionality which makes WebMail Pro also a DAV server for cloud storage of users' files. They can drag-n-drop files from desktop, create folders, make public links to share files with their friends, attach files to an e-mail on Compose screen or send them via e-mail directly from Files module.

It's also now possible for users to connect their external cloud storages like Google Drive and Dropbox and attach files from there when composing e-mails.

Calendar now supports importing from .ICS files in iCalendar format. Just drag-n-drop a file from your desktop or use "Import ICS file" command in calendar properties.

Other end-user functions added to this version include desktop notifications on arrival of new messages, Show Full Headers, the ability to not only move but also copy messages using drag-n-drop (with Ctrl), layout improvements in both desktop and mobile version, enhanced support of Right-to-Left languages (Arabic and Hebrew), performance optimizations and dozens of misc. fixes.

As for admin-level and developer-level features, we now published a lot of new docs and API (check this at WebMail Pro Documentation), added user-activity logging, extended plugin repository. And if you are using a popular ownCloud platform, you can now take advantage of ownCloud Single Sign-On integration provided for the new WebMail Pro.


New WebMail Pro goes mobile

May 5, 2014
We've just released WebMail Pro v7.3 which now includes long-awaited mobile version targeted at smartphone users.

Other improvements include Advanced Search dropdown which can be used to fine-tune your search query and find attachments.

Importance status of e-mail message is now displayed in the message list.

The plugin ecosystem around WebMail Pro continues to grow as well.

With our new winmail.dat plugin, users will be able to open MS-TNEF (winmail.dat) attachments created by MS Outlook and MS Exchange.

New zip plugin enables opening zip attachments right in the browser. Both winmail.dat and zip plugins are implemented via a set of new hooks which let you develop similar plugins to open other file container formats of your choice.

Auto-save of composed messages was improved in a number of ways. Now we don't do autosave if nothing has changed since the last time it occurred - this saves traffic and server resources. Also, we added auto-save ability for Quick Reply mode.

Recurring events in calendar now look better and easier to distinguish from one-time events.

We also added experimental support for PostgreSQL database backend as alternative to MySQL and welcome your comments on this.

Besides that, the new version adds more than a hundred of bug fixes and small improvements.


New WebMail Pro v7.2 adds identities, improved layout and skins

February 10, 2014
This WebMail Pro PHP release delivers a LOT of new exciting features and improvements. That's what kept us busy this winter:

  • Improved layout of Compose window and Message Preview pane with better attachment management.
  • Attachment thumbnails in preview pane (available when PHP has GD extension enabled).
  • White skin (and skin selector as you can now select skins).
  • Conversion of email addresses in To/CC/BCC fields to blue tags which can be easily drag-n-dropped, removed, or edited.
  • Collapse nested folders.
  • Download all attachments with a single click (available when PHP has zip extension enabled).
  • Automatic highlighting links in HTML messages (earlier, highlighting links was supported in plain-text messages only).
  • Numeric value now appears near "Move to Trash" button and shows how many items are currently selected. This lets you know how many messages will be moved to trash or spam if you click the corresponding button.
  • Collapsed threads are now highlighted if unread messages exist in such threads.
  • New "Save replied messages to current folder" setting makes threads look more complete.
  • Your own email address is replaced with "me" in message list and preview pane.
  • "Email to this group" feature in Contacts.
  • Autocomplete feature on Compose screen now includes groups in suggestion list.
  • Search textbox allows for email:addr_1,addr2,addr_n syntax to search for multiple email addresses at once.
  • Webmail lets you register it as mailto: handler making it the default email application.
  • cPanel installer supports the new cPanel version.
  • And more than a hundred of smaller improvements and other features that are just hard to explain in a few words :-)


MailBee Objects V8.2

November 20, 2013
The new release of ActiveX version of MailBee components accumulates all the bugfixes and improvements applied to the codebase during last year, and has Windows 8/8.1 compatible installer.

The new version works much better with quoted strings and international characters in encoded headers for both IMAP4's structured responses and normal MIME messages (the latter applies to both IMAP4 and POP3).

A number of other improvements have been applied to the MIME parser, including a new mode of saving HTML e-mails with embedded pictures (keeps related files' filenames close to originals but adds suffixes to avoid overwriting when multiple files have the same filename).

All e-mail components (SMTP, IMAP4, POP3) now better process disconnection issues and don't claim errors unless necessary.

Finally, there are some documentation and readme fixes.


MailBee.NET Objects V8 with Address Validator

November 14, 2013
It's been a while since last update of MailBee.NET Objects but it was worth waiting for. This release adds a ton of improvements including a new component for bulk e-mail validation, better support of the latest Windows versions like 8.1, 64-bit systems, and .NET 4.0/4.5/4.5.1 Framework, OAuth 2.0, Visual Studio 2013 compatibility, and much more.

First of all, meet MailBee.NET Address Validator, a high-performance, massively multi-threaded, database-aware .NET component which can enable your applications to verify e-mail addresses for valid syntax, for domain name existence, DNS MX accuracy, and SMTP availibility. It can be purchased separately or as part of the full MailBee.NET Objects bundle.

A big brother of Address Validator, SMTP component, can now run mail merge over SQL Server database enabling efficient and memory-conservative processing of very big datasets.

With IMAP component, you can now explicitly tell the server not to set IMAP Seen flag when downloading full messages.

A number of other enhancements have been applied to the particular components (especially Outlook .PST reader and .MSG converter), but the most important updates cover the entire library. Just to name a few:
  • This release introduces support of SASL XOAUTH2 authentication for all e-mail protocols. You can now check or send e-mail at Gmail and other OAuth 2.0 enabled services without ever knowing the user's password.
  • Registry licensing no longer causes issues when MailBee is being used within 32-bit process on 64-bit Windows. Generally, the licensing mechanism now requires much less attention and just lets you focus on the task you're doing.
  • Countless improvements to the MIME parser and builder, especially related to S/MIME, international e-mails, and special characters processing (like quoted strings in e-mail headers).
  • Network related changes, including better IPv6 support, ability to set .Connect timeout, more accurate validation of certificates during SSL connections.

WebMail Pro v7.1 with mail threading and all-new calendar

October 2, 2013
The new WebMail Pro finally supports grouping mails in conversations, while other important improvements include a completely new and feature-rich Calendar module.

If your IMAP server supports THREAD extension, WebMail Pro will automatically join related e-mails into conversations when displaying message list. However, you can disable this feature on system or per-user level if your mail server is not fast enough on large mailboxes.

Another cool feature is Starred folder. Actually, it's not a real folder but a filter applied to Inbox and displaying only e-mails which are marked with a star.

But the new calendar is even cooler. This is the thing which we're really proud of. And it now lets users download their calendars as .ics file, add them to CalDAV clients, or enable public access to their calendars ("everyone with the link" approach). Try it and feel free to let us know what you think!

Besides that, there is a ton of other fixes and enhancements. Performance improvements, bug fixes, better search, user interface adjustments here and there across the entire system.


BIG NEWS: AfterLogic Aurora integrates corporate email, collaboration, and helpdesk

September 26, 2013
We're launching our Next Big Thing here at AfterLogic - Aurora.

Aurora combines business email server, global address book, shared calendar, corporate files storage, and helpdesk module into a single integrated environment. This lets businesses run most of their common communication tasks in a unified way sparing the need to learn and integrate different services, each time at their own risk.

Multi-tenant nature of Aurora also makes it ready for hosters and other cloud providers to offer business collaboration services to their clients. Backed up with a flexible partnership program, Aurora lets providers start collaboration hosting quickly and at no additional cost, increasing their revenue.

The main idea of Aurora platform is to keep it simple. Aurora puts the focus on serving key tasks which are actually performed by SMB's. Most SMB's use only 10% of features supported by full-fledged services and have difficulties with everyday use of these heavy products. Our goal is to give users that very 10% and keep the whole system free from burden of unnecessary features.

Top-notch user experience is another goal. Aurora utilizes the latest web technologies to provide inspiring and highly responsive user interface. With extensive use of caching and pre-caching Aurora platform delivers performance and response times comparable to those of desktop applications.

Under the hood, Aurora takes advantage of a mature codebase and many years of our experience in building e-mail server applications.

A new product, the proven technology!

MailBee.NET Objects v7.3 meets Windows 8. Save 10% now!

December 10, 2012
The new release of MailBee.NET Objects comes with a Windows 8 compatible installer which doesn't clutter up Metro start screen with tons of application-related shortcuts. Instead, there is a handy start menu application which lets you access the documentation and other features.

Other improvements include some new options of checking SSL certificates, .NET Framework 4.0/4.5 compatibility enhancements, MIME parser fixes.

To celebrate the new release we are offering a 10% discount. The offer expires when 2012 ends, don't miss it!


MailBee Objects v8.1 is out

October 23, 2012
In this release of MailBee Objects ActiveX edition we added the support of Content-Location header, the ability to send e-mails to multiple recipients even in case if some recipients get rejected by the SMTP server, and e-mail address validation improvements.

Some e-mails with embedded pictures use Content-Location header instead of Content-ID to refer these pictures in the HMTL message body. Now MailBee Objects library supports this.

With the new AllowRefusedRecipients property and GetAcceptedRecipients/GetRefusedRecipients methods SMTP object is now enabled to send multi-recipient e-mails which may have some recipients invalid.

Message.ValidateEmailAddress method now correctly validates the e-mail addresses like sarah.o' (with apostrophe) and some others.

A few miscellaneous improvements and fixes to the MIME parser have been added as well.


WebMail Pro PHP 6.5 adds CardDAV support

August 8, 2012
The new version of WebMail Pro PHP script cuts the price down and finally lets your mobile users stay in sync for all the data, including mail, calendar, and contacts.

Use native apps of your iPhone or iPad to work with the same data you see in the browser! With IMAP for mail, CalDAV for calendar, and newly added CardDAV for contacts and groups, WebMail Pro lets you keep everything synced all the time. Any device or application which supports CalDAV, CardDAV or IMAP protocols can be used, including iPhone and iPad.

With iOS devices, the user doesn't even need to know all the access details for every kind of account (be it mail, calendar, or address book). WebMail Pro can deliver all the settings right into the device automatically, thanks to the full iOS profile support in the new WebMail Pro. When an iPhone or iPad user logs in WebMail Pro for the first time, they're prompted to get their profile with a single click. Even if the user declines at that moment, they'll always find this option in Mobile Settings. Can't be easier.

Besides that, there's a great deal of miscellaneous fixes and improvements. WebMail Pro is now faster, more accurate, and consumes less resources. And it's a hell of a lot LESS expensive than before!

With the new per-server licenses for cPanel, Plesk, and DirectAdmin servers, it makes the provider's life a lot easier. No need to count each and every user and worry about reaching mailboxes number limits imposed by user-count based licenses. Such licenses, however, are still available for those who are interested, but at much lower prices. You can check the new pricing at:


MailBee Objects V8 with full Unicode support

July 02, 2012
The new version of MailBee Objects ActiveX library has been rewritten in many areas, including the full Unicode support. Writing applications which support different languages and character sets has never been easier.

Other improvements include much better S/MIME support, message ranges in POP3, tracking all the data traffic during SMTP, IMAP4, and POP3 sessions, accurate modification of existing messages (for re-sending or forwarding), improved and new code samples (especially for Visual C++).

Note that you may need to slightly adjust the code of your existing applications as some methods got more parameters (this is usually a concern if your development language does not support optional parameters). Delphi is an example. Pay special attention to POP3.RetrieveHeaders method as its parameters signature has changed significantly.

The new version has new license keys. You can request your updated license key at (assumes you have a valid maintenance contract).

To download the new version, click

Note that if you earlier downloaded MailBee Objects V8 beta, you can keep using it. No issues has been reported for that version and now it's officially called the production version.

Direct send without a relay server is now possible even if the system's DNS servers are not available, thanks to the root DNS servers provided by Google. See DnsAutodetectOptions.RootServers value for details.

When connecting to Yahoo SMTP/IMAP/POP3 servers, MailBee.NET Objects by default selects the appropriate SSL modes and ports.


WebMail Pro PHP 6.4 is out

April 5, 2012
Warning! Before upgrading to the new version, be sure you've read and understood the statement below.

We're releasing a new version of our webmail server products. Please notice that we've changed the way these products work to better meet the market demand and most clients' expectations.

Important. The new webmail version no longer includes any collaboration-related features such as Global Address Book, shared calendars and appointments with attendees. Personal address books and personal calendars are still available.

All the collaboration-related functionality is moved into another product which will be announced soon. The new product will be specially tuned for the needs of business customers.

Please do not upgrade to the new version in case if you're using collaborative features. They won't work with the new version. Also, due to a new calendar backend, the existing calendar data will not be accessible in the new version (even for personal calendars). Later, we'll offer some migration procedures for clients which need collaborative features or the access to their old calendar data.

We hope the new positioning of our products will meet the demands of the users more closely and make our solutions more comfortable and efficient for both our customers and their end users. And we're always open to your suggestions.

What else is new:
  • built-in CalDAV support enables mobile sync of calendars on iPhone and all other devices and applications which support CalDAV protocol
  • support of iOS profiles to easily get your e-mail and calendar account imported on your iOS device like iPhone
  • tons of small but nice fixes and improvements

WebMail Pro PHP and MailSuite Pro Linux got v6.3

November 22, 2011
Today, we released a new version of our webmail server offerings: WebMail Pro - standalone webmail script for existing mail server, and MailSuite Pro Linux - webmail script bundled with an SMTP/IMAP/POP3 MTA, anti-spam and anti-virus for a complete solution.

WebMail Pro got the improved plugin system which lets you implement 'change account password' functionality for your mail server (POPPASSD plugin is supplied out-of-box), let users configure forwarding, vacation message (auto-resonder), and so on, without digging into deep internals of the core webmail script.

Also, if your mail server supports Sieve filters, you can use Sieve to set forwarding and vacation messages.

To configure Sieve filters, WebMail Pro uses ManageSieve protocol. If your server supports Sieve filters but not ManageSieve protocol, you can install AfterLogic ManageSieve Server to fill the gap. MailSuite Pro Linux already includes ManageSieve Server.


MailBee Objects v7.0 goes IPv6

November 17, 2011
The latest version of MailBee Objects (ActiveX edition) now supports both IPv4 and IPv6, ESMTP Delivery Status Notifications, non-standard IMAP flags, and much more.

To switch between IPv6 or IPv4, you don't need to set any properties. Just use any IPv6 address (like "::1") the same way you do with IPv4 addresses. MailBee will automatically pick the appropriate connection function based on the address format.

SMTP component now autodetects if STARTTLS is supported and switches the connection on port 587 to SSL mode only if STARTTLS is here. Also, SMTP component checks if DSN extension is available on the server, and lets you specify Delivery Status Notification settings if it is.

With IMAP component you can now use non-standard IMAP message flags, like \Starred, $Spam or any other flags used by your server.

MIME parser has been improved in many ways, including the ability to load e-mails from memory and dealing with e-mails consisting of multiple plain-text or HTML parts (like those created by Apple Mail).

MailBee.NET Objects v7.0 adds HTML to PDF conversion

October 19, 2011
The latest release of MailBee.NET Objects adds PDF Converter component you can use to create PDF invoices, quotes, and other table-based documents from their HTML version.

The produced PDF documents can be sent as email attachments, saved to disk or stream for further processing by other applications. You can also tweak and fine-tune the process of converting HTML to PDF with a number of callback methods (delegates in C#), adjusting colors, alignment, fonts, emitting extra elements, and so on. This lets you perform conversion of HTML documents which utilize complex formatting and CSS.


MailBee.NET component bundles from $299

August 31, 2011
If you plan to buy some of MailBee.NET component, there is yet another good reason to proceed.
We now offer two additional bundles which feature most of the required components at a reduced price.

The full bundle is still available:
  • MailBee.NET Objects (includes SMTP, POP3, IMAP, Security, Outlook, and AntiSpam components) - from $399
Select MailBee.NET Objects bundle if you need both IMAP and POP3 or would like to implement your own spam filter.

MailBee.NET Objects v6.10.1 improves documentation, S/MIME, and MS Exchange compatibility

July 12, 2011
This maintenance release of MailBee.NET Objects delivers a number of improvements to both the code and documentation.

The new version provides the enhanced support of NTLM and GSSAPI authentication against MS Exchange server, including a new authentication option AuthenticationOptions.UseLocalDomainAsDefault, and addresses a few S/MIME issues specific to web server environments where the current system user may not have the appropriate certificates in place.

Navigation through the documentation has been improved much, check the Developer's Guide out to give it a try! The docs also add some new topics like "Deployment and redistribution of MailBee.NET Objects with your application" and provide the link to online live demos of the ASP.NET samples. The ASP.NET samples themselves have also been revised.


MailBee.NET Objects 6.10 adds OpenID + OAuth hybrid, iCal, and new docs

June 30, 2011
We've just released a new version of MailBee.NET Objects packed with a number of cool features such as the full iCal support and OpenID + OAuth hybrid authorization, amongst lots of other improvements and fixes.

OpenID + OAuth hybrid authorization makes it possible to work with e-mail of a user without requiring them to enter their e-mail address and password. The user just clicks a button to grant your application the access to their e-mails (but your application still does not know the e-mail account password). Simple and secure.

iCal support lets you create or respond to events, meeting requests, invite attendees, set reminders, and so on.

IMAP module now supports AllMail and Starred flags (invented by Gmail), makes complex search easier with new helper methods in ImapUtils class, and also provides helper methods to work with collections of UIDs and ordinal message numbers.

Other fixes apply to the authentication mechanism, MIME and S/MIME functionality, SSL certificates, Outlook .MSG converter and .PST reader.

The Developer's Guide now includes IMAP/POP3, Outlook, iCal/vCard topics. And check out our new ASP.NET samples! We've put a lot of effort into them...

MailBee.NET Objects v6.9 adds Developer's Guide and vCard support

April 21, 2011
The detailed and well-thought documentation for a software library is no less important than the code itself. With the new MailBee.NET Objects release, we started making the thorough guide of all the features offered by the library.

The first part of the Developer's Guide, Create and send e-mails tutorial, is already here. More than 140 topics included, check it out!

You can also download the new release of MailBee.NET Queue which comes with some additional C# and VB samples of bulk mailing and mail merge. You can use them not only with MailBee.NET Queue itself, but also with other background e-mail delivery services like Microsoft IIS SMTP.

As for new features, vCard support is the most important one. You can create new and parse existing vCard attachments and .VCF files, with support of vCard 2.1 and 3.0 versions, .BMP and .JPG photos, international charsets and non-Latin characters.

vCard processor comes as a separate .DLL (although it's installed by MailBee.NET Objects setup program). It's a free add-on, moreover, the source code is available! Read more at ICalVCard page.

Other enhancements:
  • improved parser and builder of Outlook .MSG files
  • improved reader of Outlook .PST files
  • more accurate mechanism of auto-detecting DNS servers (affects direct send mode)
  • lots of other direct send improvements
  • misc. fixes to MIME parser and builder, S/MIME, mail merge


MailBee.NET Objects with Source Code

April 8, 2011
Ever wanted to get hold of the source code of MailBee.NET Objects to gain full control over all the features? Then you may be interested to learn that we now offer MailBee.NET Objects with Source Code option at a competitive price.

With the source code, you'll be able to tweak every existing feature or add your own, get access to the internal classes with extra functionality, comply with the requirements in some deployments where all the software being used must be accompanied with its source code.

The pricing starts from $1199 for a perpetual Single Developer license, and includes 1 year of the free standard support and updates of the binaries and source code. If you already own a license with source code, you can upgrade to the Source code license for the price difference.

WebMail Pro PHP v6.1 plays voice messages and supports Plesk

March 24, 2011
From now on, WebMail Pro PHP supports both major hosting control panels - Plesk and cPanel, and provides built-in support of voice messages playback.

You're a hosting provider? Plesk integration lets you upgrade Plesk's default webmail software to the fast and neat WebMail Pro package. Your clients will be able to check their Plesk e-mail accounts by entering their credentials on WebMail Pro login form.

A hosting client? You can check your Plesk e-mail account if your hosting provider set WebMail Pro as the default webmail interface, or even install your own copy of WebMail Pro from the local repository and get total control over it - customize its settings, source code, and so on.

Voice messages playback is based on Flash, supports .WAV and .AMR formats, and may be of a special interest of carriers and telecom providers. We implemented it in an extensible manner to enable seamless integration with the existing messaging infrastructure. To assist you with the integration process, we also provide the entire range of ongoing development services.

Other important improvements include the revised Advanced Login mode and enhanced attachments area in message view.


MailBee.NET Objects v6.8 is out

March 21, 2011
The latest MailBee.NET Objects release allows you to greatly speed up downloading e-mails in your IMAP applications, makes it easier to use DKIM and DomainKeys, can extract RTF body from winmail.dat attachments, and more.

With Imap.DownloadEnvelopesEx method, you can join multiple IMAP commands for downloading message data in a single batch. The pipelined execution of commands may result in 1000% performance boost, and there is no typo here! It's especially efficient when you download text body of multiple e-mails without downloading entire messages.

Also, IMAP and POP3 components now support negative message indexes. For instance, you can easily access the last e-mail in the folder with -1 index.

Many improvements were made to Outlook .MSG, .PST and TNEF parsers. As an example, you can now extract RTF message body from MS-TNEF (winmail.dat attachment).

DKIM signing and verification made easier with MailMessage.DomainKeysSign and MailMessage.DomainKeysVerify methods. You also no longer need Smtp license to verify DKIM signatures and can sign with DKIM during mail merge.

Other improvements include:

  • MailMessage.Parser.FixCrLf property to deal with e-mails not having the correct CrLf sequence at the end of each body line
  • XOAUTH and IMAP XLIST fixes (important for Gmail users)
  • better and user-controlled handling of shared access to spam and non-spam databases in AntiSpam component
  • added new bounced e-mail formats

MailBee.NET Queue Released

February 28, 2011
The latest update of MailBee.NET Queue changes its status from Beta to Release.

You can use MailBee.NET Queue to send large volumes of e-mais, reduce response time of your e-mail sending applications, restrict the message sending rate for those servers which impose such limitations, retry the failed sends later.

MailBee.NET Queue can send to ordinary and SSL-only mail servers like Gmail, perform "direct send" via DNS MX lookup, distribute the throughput over multiple SMTP servers and use fail-over servers.

The Release version adds the documentation, a number of C# samples of using MailBee.NET Queue API by your applications, some additional SMTP settings, bugfixes and improvements.

As before, MailBee.NET Queue is available at no additional cost for MailBee.NET SMTP and MailBee.NET Objects users and shipped with the source code. This gives you a great freedom of customizing MailBee.NET Queue for your tasks.

  • Support of OAuth authorization and XOAUTH authentication enables applications to access e-mail resources without requiring end users to give their credentials away to these applications. Widely used by Google, Twitter and many others.

  • Much improved HTML-to-RTF transformation during converting .EML files into Outlook .MSG format. HTML-to-RTF engine now supports more tags and creates more accurate formatting in the produced Outlook .MSG documents.

Other enhancements include NTLM and GSSAPI authentication improvements, a number of fixes to MIME parser and IMAP client, and the revised documentation.


WebMail Pro v6.0 PHP and ASP.NET editions released

This version also deprecates some confusing options and rarely-used modes to achieve the optimal balance between flexibility and clarity of the product.


MailBee.NET Objects v6.6 enhances Outlook .PST and .NET Compact support

December 15, 2010
The new version of MailBee.NET Objects provides some major improvements to Outlook .PST reader, better support of .NET Compact Framework, besides dozens of miscellaneous improvements and fixes accross the entire library.

Outlook .PST reader can now extract any particular item based on its .PST ID numeric value. This way you can have direct access to any single item in the file. Other improvments include the rewritten parsing engine, new handy properties to get filesystem-safe names of .PST folders and unique IDs of any items. Last but not least is the support of 32-bit .PST files produced by older versions of Outlook.

Many types and collections in SmtpMail namespace were made Serializable (SmtpServer, SmtpServerCollection, DnsServer, DnsServerCollection) so you can easily store SMTP settings in an .XML file. This is widely used in the brand new MailBee.NET Queue application which is capable of background sending large volumes of e-mails. The project is currently "beta" and shipped as a C# source code. The code is pretty simple to learn how to use MailBee.NET Objects for advanced use like multi-threaded mass-mailing with redundant SMTP relay servers and DNS MX lookup based delivery. You can get MailBee.NET Queue from

Other enhancements include a number of workarounds for some threading-related .NET Compact Framework limitations, improved simultaneous access to the BayesFilter database from multiple processes and minor documentation and bug fixes.

MailBee.NET Objects v6.5 adds GSSAPI, XLIST and Exchange 2010 support

September 14, 2010
Just after the release of ActiveX edition which supports GSSAPI, XLIST and Exchange 2010, we now present the same improvements in the .NET edition of MailBee components. Besides that, there are some important changes specific to the .NET version only.

The new version provides the following major benefits:
  • Managed version of GSSAPI and NTLM authentication methods (UnmanagedCode permission no longer required)
  • GSSAPI/NTLM and plain NTLM revised to work with MS Exchange 2007 and above
  • GSSAPI/Kerberos method implemented (GSSAPI is the only supported method in MS Exchange 2010)
  • GSSAPI now supports explicitly specified credentials (not only Integrated Windows Authentication)
  • Simplified authentication procedure (retry with a non-secure method if the secure method fails)
  • XLIST IMAP extension to support special folder flags like Sent, Drafts or Trash (supported by Google, Apple and many others)
  • Improved IMAP support on MS Exchange and Zimbra servers
  • MS Help 3.0 documentation which integrates with Visual Studio 2010


MailBee Objects v6.0 adds GSSAPI, XLIST and Exchange 2010 support

September 8, 2010
Today, we announce the most significant update of ActiveX version of MailBee components for the last years.

The new version provides the following major benefits:
  • a number of new authentication methods, including GSSAPI/NTLM and GSSAPI/Kerberos (which is a must for MS Exchange 2010 which does not support any other methods)
  • plain NTLM authentication rewritten from the ground up to support MS Exchange 2007 and above
  • Integrated Windows Authentication mode of GSSAPI/NTLM, GSSAPI/Kerberos and plain NTLM methods to log in using the current Windows user context
  • XLIST IMAP extension to support special folder flags like Sent, Drafts or Trash
  • SSL functionality made much easier to use and it no longer requires a separate license

Other enhancements include improved support of submitting e-mails to IIS SMTP pickup folder, revised documentation and samples.


Mobile sync, 3-pane view, LDAP in MailSuite Pro and WebMail Pro v5.0

July 30, 2010
Ergonomic 3-pane view layout optimized for wide-screen displays allows for better webmail experience while the Outlook sync plugin lets you keep working with your events and contacts when you're not using the webmail. Outlook sync was rewritten from the ground up and now supports two-way synchronization of both contacts and calendar events.

MailSuite Pro for Linux adds another way of synchronizing your contacts and calendar - via SyncML. The installer can automatically download and setup Funambol SyncML server, providing mobile sync to your users which have SyncML-enabled devices. Stand-alone WebMail Pro PHP can also be configured to enable mobile sync via Funambol.

Funambol, being the world's leader in providing unified mobile sync solutions, aims to add SyncML capabilities to a widest variety of mobile handsets. Even if your device does not support SyncML out-of-box, the mobile sync client for it may be freely available from Funambol. This includes contacts/calendars sync for BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian as well as contacts sync for iPhone and Android.

With the LDAP authentication mechanism in MailSuite Pro for Linux, you no longer have to register each user in MailSuite Pro admin panel if the user is already available in your LDAP directory, be it OpenLDAP server, Active Directory, or any other LDAP storage. MailSuite Pro will automatically create a mailbox if the username/password specified during the login denotes a valid user on the LDAP server.

Windows/ASP.NET version specific improvements include significantly reduced memory consumption during processing large e-mails (results in less frequent application pool recycles and better performance).

The new version utilizes new license keys so make sure you have obtained your new key by logging in our HelpDesk with the e-mail address you used to purchase the product. You'll need to create a ticket if you never accessed the HelpDesk before (or used another e-mail address for that).


MailBee.NET Objects v6.0: low memory usage, FIPS and Outlook .PST support

July 8, 2010
We have just released a new major version of MailBee.NET Objects which adds a lot of important features and improvements through the entire library. This includes a memory-efficient mail engine, support of Outlook .PST format, FIPS compliance and other enhancements.

The new version comes with the rewritten mail engine which parses and builds e-mail messages and SMTP/POP3/IMAP requests and responses. The new engine provides better performance and consumes 3-5 times less memory during conversations with mail servers and processing e-mails. We also added some optimization techniques you can use in your applications. These optimizations make it possible to send and receive several hundred megabytes e-mails on 1GB RAM systems.

Outlook component can now process both .MSG and .PST files. New PstReader class allows you to traverse through the folder tree of a .PST file or get the entire tree as a flat list, extract any items like messages, contacts or appointments, access their properties or convert these items into MailMessage objects. PstReader processes items one-by-one so that the entire .PST file or stream never gets loaded in memory completely. This makes it possible to read even very large .PST files containing many thousands of items.

FIPS compliance means you can now use MailBee.NET Objects in the systems which do not allow using FIPS-incompliant security algorithms like MD5. This is especially important for government organizations, banking and military structures.

Other enhancements include better compatibility with MS Exchange 2010, new overloads of Smtp.AddJob method which allow you to implement background relaying e-mails from previously created .EML files, new bounced e-mail formats and Message Disposition Notifications, Serializable exceptions, miscellaneous fixes in the code and the documentation.


WebMail Pro and MailSuite Pro now support sub-admins, auto-check mail and global address book

May 18, 2010
We're excited to let you know that so long awaited auto-check mail and global address book features are now available for your WebMail Pro and MailSuite Pro users.

Automatic mail check can poll the server for new mail every few minutes so that you don't need to click Check Mail manually. You can set the polling interval from 1 minute to Never.

Global address book is configured by the admin and can be both domain-level and system-level. When this feature is off, users see only their own contacts when using e-mail address auto-complete feature on Compose Message screen. With the domain-level address book enabled, this list also includes e-mail addresses of all the users in the domain. With the system-level address book, the list includes e-mail addresses of all the users registered in WebMail Pro MailSuite Pro database.

Also, if you host multiple mail domains with a single MailSuite Pro or WebMail Pro installation, you can create domain-level administrators and delegate them a subset of admin privileges to control users in certain domains. For instance, if you're a hosting provider, you can use this sub-admins feature to let customers manage users in their domains relieving your staff from these routine operations.

The upgrade to the latest version 4.10 is free for all registered users of previous versions of WebMail Pro PHP/ASP.NET and MailSuite Pro Linux/Windows.


MailBee.NET Objects v5.9 supports Client Profile

Apr 23, 2010
With the new MailBee.NET Objects release, we added support of .NET Framework Client Profile edition which is the default in Visual Studio 2010. Full version of .NET Framework is still supported but not necessarily required.

New features in this release include IMAP namespaces support and new options for Outlook .MSG files converter.

We have also made quite a few enhancements to .NET Compact Framework version, NTLM/GSSAPI authentication mechanisms, bounced e-mails processor, MIME parser/builder and HTML processor.


WebMail Pro v4.9 is out

Mar 26, 2010
Today we release a new version of AfterLogic WebMail Pro for both supported platforms - ASP.NET and PHP.

The new version adds meeting requests and reminders in Calendar, provides enhanced system of filters, supports Sensitivity flag, and adds LDAP-based authentication and address books (PHP version only).

Outlook Sync module can now synchronize both contacts and calendar events.

Also, PHP version is now available both standalone and as the part of MailSuite Pro for Linux bundle. It includes Exim/Courier mail server, SpamAssassin, ClamAV antivirus and PHP server along with all the web components and lets you get started easily if you do not have a mail server yet.

The upgrade to the latest version is free for all registered users of previous versions of WebMail Pro ASP.NET and PHP.

DMZ Corp assisted with creating a Japanese language web site and maintains a Japanese language translation for AfterLogic WebMail Pro, as well as a Japanese language product page for this application.


MailBee Objects v5.8: better IMAP, SSL and Delphi support

Dec 3, 2009
The latest update of ActiveX version of MailBee components introduces quite a few improvements across the library itself and the supporting code samples.

To start with, the new version is much faster on downloading or uploading large e-mails over IMAP.

Enhanced international support allows you to encode attachment filenames when composing e-mails and correctly process the charset information in HTML bodies of incoming or outgoing e-mails. This is especially useful when dealing with UTF-8 charset.

There are several new and updated sample projects for Delphi (covering SMTP, POP3, IMAP and SSL) which highlight using of many features of MailBee Objects. Delphi users should certainly take a look at the new samples!

Visual Basic 6 samples have also been updated with SSL/Gmail support.


MailBee.NET Objects v5.8 Released

Nov 18, 2009
This time, we have updated all the components within MailBee.NET Objects bundle. The most anticipated changes include the automatic detection of port number and SSL settings for well-known mail services (like and the support of DKIM anti-spam technology.

Automatic SSL/port detection makes it easier for the programmer to connect to SSL-only mail services like, and other servers operating on SSL ports (465 and 587 for SMTP, 993 for IMAP, 995 for POP3).

DKIM is a newer version of DomainKeys anti-spam technology used by, and other leading e-mail service providers. Signing an e-mail with secure DomainKeys/DKIM signatures ensures the e-mail was actually sent from the declared e-mail address. From now on, MailBee.NET Security package supports verification and creation of both classic DomainKeys and DKIM signatures.

Outlook Message Converter component now extracts more dates from .MSG data (including dates when the message was sent and received), provides improved support of streams and Unicode, the automatic RTF-to-HTML and HTML-to-RTF conversion.

BayesFilter component can now use streams to load and save the database of spam and non-spam tokens. This allows the application to store the database not only in files but in any other container like XML or SQL database.


WebMail Pro v4.8 adds Outlook Sync and PDA version

Oct 19, 2009
With the new version of WebMail Pro, you can access your mail and calendar from your mobile device and synchronize events with MS Outlook calendar.

The PDA version of WebMail Pro provides simple HTML layout optimized for small-resolution screens and does not require AJAX or JavaScript support from the browser.

Outlook Sync Add-In integrates with your Outlook 2003 or 2007 and allows you to easily synchronize events between your Outlook and WebMail Pro calendars.

Other improvements of WebMail Pro v4.8 include Identities (the drop-down list of your e-mail accounts instead of editable From: field) and further increased IMAP performance.

XMail Server Pro, the bundle of WebMail Pro with an SMTP/POP3/IMAP mail server, has also been updated. XMail Server Pro v4.8 includes the latest version of WebMail Pro and provides Archiving support.

The upgrade to the latest version is free for all registered users of previous versions of WebMail Pro and XMail Server Pro.


MailBee Objects v5.7 supports IMAP IDLE and QUOTA

Oct 16, 2009
Nowadays IMAP IDLE extension became very popular for mobile sync and other purposes. Previously, only MailBee.NET Objects supported IDLE. With the new release, you can now take advantage of this feature in ActiveX version of MailBee components as well.

The new release also supports IMAP QUOTA (used to determine the mailbox size) and can better tolerate responses from not-well written IMAP servers (smart parsing).

It also contains a number of other improvements (see History in the documentation for the full list), we recommend upgrading to this version to all the users of ActiveX components of MailBee Objects family. Your existing license key will work with the new version.


MailBee.NET Objects v5.7 Released

Oct 6, 2009
Outlook .MSG conversion functionality recently introduced in MailBee.NET Objects brought a lot of useful feedback and feature requests from our users. We decided to put the focus on it in the new release.

The new version adds mostly anticipated Unicode support which allows using international characters in .MSG files. It can also convert .MSG files embedded into other .MSG's and read Outlook-specific e-mail address formats.

Using AntiSpam, IMAP and POP3 components can now be easier with the new WinForms sample project we included into the installation package. It's a real-world sample of how you can train and use Bayesian spam filter over POP3, IMAP and local folders. It also employs many good practices of handling exceptions, event processing and keeping the user interface responsive all the time. If you do not yet have this sample, you can get it with the new version.


Two reasons to buy MailBee.NET and MailBee now

Aug 24, 2009
This is to inform you that the current week is the last one when MailBee.NET and MailBee products are sold at the current prices.

From 1 Sep 2009, AfterLogic will change licensing structure and raise prices on MailBee.NET and MailBee products. Yet another reason to make your purchase until that date, in addition to the current 25% discount.

The new licensing structure for these products is simpler and contains Developer licenses only (Single Developer, 4 Developers Team, Developer Site). All of these licenses support royalty-free distribution.


WebMail Pro v4.7 is out

Aug 20, 2009
Faster, Higher, Stronger. We believe this Olympic slogan is the best way to get the point of the new WebMail Pro.

IMAP module has been rewritten to achieve much better performance, consume less resources and decrease load on your IMAP server. This results in better response times of the user interface and increased scalability of the entire system.

We also extended Manage IMAP Folders feature with the ability to select which folder on your IMAP server should be used as Sent Items, Drafts or Trash (earlier, these folders were hard-coded). This is especially useful for non-English users which typically have IMAP accounts with international folder names.

As usually, we also made a number of minor improvements and end-user interface fixes (like Request Read Confirmation when you compose a message).

Last but not least is the improved multi-domain capability. If you host multiple domains, you can now configure a single WebMail Pro installation to offer webmail access for users from different domains, where each domain has its own default settings, skin and login URL.

WebMail Pro v4.6 is out

June 19, 2009
1. If you are already using WebMail Pro and IMAP, the new version is a "must" upgrade for you.

2. If you're still thinking of trying WebMail Pro and your server is running cPanel, it's the best time to start your trial now.

Why are we so confident about the first point? Because IMAP support in WebMail Pro now includes quotas for automatic mailbox size management, direct search on IMAP server, and new easy-to-use approach to deleting e-mails.

And what's so special in cPanel support? Because it's now really easy for the server admin to add WebMail Pro into the list of applications available for installation by domain admins. And, for the domain admin, it's just a matter of typing URL and license key for the application in order to have it installed for the particular domain.

However, even if you're not using IMAP or cPanel, you can find quite a few nice improvements in the new version, including Replied/Forwarded flags for messages, improved Admin Panel, cool UI language selector, export to iCal in Calendar, and more.


MailBee.NET Outlook Converter reads and writes .MSG files

June 9, 2009

WebMail Pro v4.5: installs easier, works faster

Mar 11, 2009
The spring is here, finally! And so is the next release of WebMail Pro, which now offers support of right-to-left languages, greatly improved performance and easier installation process.

We're excited how fast the new WebMail Pro works, and how it looks with the new default skin.

But for some of you, even more important change may be RTL (right-to-left) support, a kind of user interface layout optimized for Arabic and Hebrew languages.

Some good news if you are lazy. New version comes with a web installer wizard which helps you setup the product and avoid common pitfalls. You can use this installer on both shared hosting and dedicated server. Why don't give it a try?

By the way, it's the last week while the current 50% discount offer is active. You are aware :-)
