Contact List permissions has been improved

New versions both of the IM server and messenger software are available for download. Version 4.3.18 of Bopup Communication Server improved messaging and permissions functionality, see the list of changes below:


Added new option that restricts IM other contacts that are not included to user's Contact List

New setting called "Prevent messaging with users that are not from contacts" added to Contact List tab of user's properties dialog in the console.


This option becomes available only if the contacts are locked on the server. Using this option will disable sending replies to contacts when they appear under Not In Contacts list even those users are located in visible/accessible Organizational Unit.


Added new setting that checks OU permission on delivery of private messages between users

The Messaging tab of the Options dialog box in the console added new checkbox called "Check OU permissions on delivering every personal message"


Recent versions of the communication server checked those permissions each time but it could make instant messaging slower in most of times. So now this option is available as a stand-alone and turned off by default.


Improved Active Directory Import Wizard

The server console added some improvements to import wizard. Now it does not stop/start the service that forced a disconnect of all users if the wizard has been executed in Update or Synchronize modes. Restart of the service occurs now only if the wizard went out from Create new mode.

Please note that it is required to update the messenger application to version 6.5.7 in order to support new option that prevents sending messaging to non-contacts users.
