Instant messengers improved GUI on larger font settings in Windows

We released new versions both of the messenger and observer clients. Bopup Messenger 7.0.7 and Bopup Observer 6.0.2 fixed displaying user inteface and GUI issues if medium or larger font settings are used in Windows options. Previous versions could display some elements and position them on dialog of the application.

Bopup Messenger version 7.0.7 also improved receipt of urgent (high priority) instant messages. Now they are always opened and shown in conversation window regardless the messenger settings. In addition urgent messages are marked with red color similar to displaying such messages in the main window.

Block user password, schedule database backups and more in new version of IM server

New version 5.2.9 of Bopup Communication Server has been released. In this release we tried to implement recent requests and suggestions we got from our customers. See the list of changes below.

What's new:

Added option to block user's password
There is a new setting added to the user's properties dialog in the server console. Now it is possible to prevent changing password by user himself from the messenger software by checking "Block password" option on Authentication tab. It works only if Private login/password authentication is used for the user (set globally or personally).

Send messages to all or only connected users from a command line interface
We extended BCSCmd.exe command line tool that added support to send messages to all user accounts on the communication server. So it is possible to deliver an instant message to only currently connected (online) users or all users on the server with /OFFLINE switch.

Backup SQL database from a command line
Another great improvement is option to make backup files of IM server database using the same BCSCmd.exe command line utility. It can be now called from Windows Task Scheduler to make database backups regularly with saving data into specified folder/file path.

Minor useful improvements and additions
New version of the communication server also includes update version of IM Client Configuration Tool, improved bulk edit of user accounts and many more.

We released new messenger and observer updates, and Bopup Messenger version 7.0.6 and Bopup Observer version 6.0.1 are available for download at

New releases includes bugfixes and interface immprovements. Among those changes there are the following additions:

Added to support to prevent changing user password if appropriate option is set on IM server
This new function is now supported both the messenger and observer software. It requires a new version 5.2.9 of Bopup Communication Server that is going to be released in the next few days which will have a new option that prevents users from changing password by themselves from the IM clients.

Improved receipt of messages, fixed duplicating and missing offline IM
This important change fixes possible issues with receiving and displaying instant messages in the IM clients when the messenger gets few messages at the same time like offline messages from the communication server on startup.

Fixed auto-response messages in the Away mode
This fix is related to Bopup Messenger client only that could wrongly send a previously used away message in the idle away instead of sending a special idle away message.

Many interface improvements
Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer improve displaying and formatting text of messages. The messenger also fixes scrolling the conversation window and now always shows most recent message at bottom.
