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.

Fixed saving Active Directory (LDAP) Integration settings on the IM server

Today new version of Bopup Communication Server has been released. Version 4.0.12 comes with built-in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express that was added in previous version of the server and also fixes problem with saving settings in the "Active Directory (LDAP) Intergation" dialog available in the Tools menu of the Management Console.

The problem with saving LDAP integration settings comes from version 4.0.0 of the communication server in which we moved that options from the Options dialog to a separate window. Starting from that version the Active Directory integration could not even turned on (by default it is off) so it was impossible to search, import and create user accounts "on-the-fly" from the LDAP catalog.

For more information about this feature please refer to online documentation of Bopup Communication Server available at http://www.bopup.com/onlinehelp/server/tools/active_directory_ldap_integration.html
