    Hi Jen,

    This is definitely a good post regarding mailenable upgarde but I would like to shed some more light regarding this.

    The installation will ask you if you want to backup your settings (select Yes). It is also good practice to have used the MEBACKUP utility beforehand although, since the installation makes its own backup this is not essential.

    Simply follow the installation wizard, verifying your settings until the wizard completes. You may be asked to reboot your sever at the end of the upgrade. The underlying configuration data and options are essentially the same for all MailEnable versions.

    Note: Enterprise will use the same configuration data and options as Standard and Professional, but has two way migration wizards for changing the configuration provider. Eg: TAB Files ->Database -> TAB Files. Enterprise stores more data than Standard and Professional Editions, but the configuration format is backward compatible.

        Hello Friends,

        I would like to let you know some information about atmail webmail client if you are using with latest mailenable server. Plesk comes with light version of atmail webmail client, In the light version of atmail you can't see the date and time of sending and receiving emails. This is the bug/issue of atmail light version.

        If you face this problem then you can use following tweaks to fix the issue.

        remove the following two files from atmail webamil repository.

        <vhosts_location>\webmail\atmail\libs\Atmail\getma il.php
        <vhosts_location>\webmail\atmail\libs\Atmail\readm sg.php

        Then download and replace these two files from the following location.



        And then restart IIS service.

        But instead of using atmail webmail client or any other wemail client I would recommend to use mailenable webmail client which comes with latest versions of mailenable server.
