MailStore Server 13.0
- Note Following Microsoft's major product renaming for consumer and SMB products, the name Office 365 has been replaced by Microsoft 365 throughout the software. All references to Microsoft 365 interchangeably apply to the Office 365 Enterprise plans and other plans that kept Office 365 in their name.
- Note This release fully removes the support for establishing unencrypted connections to MailStore Server. This also includes the HTTP-to-HTTPS redirect option, which must be considered insecure without the use of properly configured HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS).
- Note Mobile Web Access has been fully removed in this release. Many improvements and bug fixes applied to the responsive Web Access in this release make it a suitable, modern, and secure replacement on all supported mobile devices, including support of authenticating users directly against Microsoft 365 and Google G Suite.

Please note that IMAP access to the archive is no longer supported when using a directory service which authenticates users via OpenID Connect.
- Note Google has announced the removal of basic authentication types for IMAP in G Suite. IMAP is used in MailStore when authenticating users against G Suite. The existing direcory service settings for G Suite have therefore been extended to support the modern OpenID Connect authentication method. Customers of G Suite are advised to regularly check for Google's announcement on the timeline for removing basic authentication, and should plan the migration to the new setting in advance. Please note that IMAP access to the archive is no longer supported when using a directory service which authenticates users via OpenID Connect.
