Mimecast is pleased to announce a continuous deployment of improvements in Mimecast for Outlook, containing the following enhancements and fixes.

 

Mimecast for Outlook 6.0

27th July 2015 - Build 6.0.1301.14110

 

New features

  • Support for Microsoft Click-To-Run installations.
  • Support for Office 365 Outlook ProPlus.
  • Support for Windows 10.
  • Mimecast for Outlook now uses the main Mimecast API.
  • Support for 2-Step Authentication (Coming soon).
  • Support for Revoke Authentication (Coming soon).

Enhancements

  • Log files will now be appended should the service restart unexpectedly.
  • The cursor is now automatically focused on the Text field when Search views are opened.
  • Support for message sensitivity during Continuity.
  • Large File Send messages can now be extended up to the full remaining retention period of the message.

 

Fixes from previous releases

  • Embedded images in the body of a Large File Send message were shown as attachments.
  • Calendar appointments were sometimes being de-duplicated incorrectly.
  • Improvements to primary mailbox detection.
  • Improvements to installation with various Outlook language packs.
  • Support for 'Send As' with Secure Messaging.
  • Resolved an issue relating to permissions when attaching large files from network locations.
  • Various performance improvements.

    When upgrading to Mimecast for Outlook v6 from v5 end users using domain or cloud authentication will need to re-authenticate once upon first launch. This is due to the previous tokens having been issued by the older MSO-Webservice endpoint; the Mimecast API will issue new authentication tokens.

     

    This will not affect customers using Integrated Windows Authentication.
