WebSTAR 5.3.3 update
4D today announced the release of , a free update to 4D WebSTAR Server Suite, which includes 4D Mail. This update enhances 4D Mail's spam filtering capabilities with IP address whitelisting, and the ability to filter messages pre-tagged with SpamAssassin headers. Among other new features, 4D WebMail Pro v2.0.3 now enables 4D Mail users to change their passwords. The 5.3.3 release includes numerous other improvements to the Web, Mail and FTP servers.

"With the v5.3.3 update, 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V continues to lead the way
in performance, security and the fight for spam-free mailboxes," said
Brendan Coveney, president and CEO of 4D, Inc. "The new IP whitelisting
capability lets administrators get even more aggressive in filtering junk
mail because they now have the ability to ensure that trusted senders aren't
accidentally filtered out."
With IP address whitelisting in 4D Mail, administrators can "whitelist"
specific IP addresses. Messages from these whitelisted locations will be
accepted without the normal DNS blacklist or spam filtering checks. The
update also offers spam filter support for messages with SpamAssassin
headers. SpamAssassin is an open-source mail filter used to identify spam.
By checking for messages that have been pre-filtered by a SpamAssassin
installation, 4D Mail can further reduce the influx of inbound spam at the
New features in WebMail Pro (v2.0.3) include the ability for Mail users to
change their password from their Web interface, the ability to add new data
segments to the 4D WebMail Pro Database, and improvements in IMAP support.
