Searching functionality has been added on the communication server

We glad to announce that new function is available in Bopup Communication Server version 3.3.9. Now you can easily search and display messages and file transfers from the archive by a range of different criterias.

Of course, you can select multiple items from the From / To list by holding Ctrl key.
