Note that v6.12 has wide ranging changes in the admin pages while making them HTML5 compliant and working towards toolkit harmonisation. While the changes have been tested (this is the main reason for the long time between 6.11 and 6.12), there is the chance that something has broken and hasn't been spotted. Let us know if you find something which used to work and now doesn't, and we'll try to fix it ASAP and release a patch.
The main differences between 6.12 and 6.11 are:
- Many improvements/fixes to admin pages
- Add quota report
- Improvements to autoresponder macros
- Update Admin pages to be HTML5 compliant and remove old versions of Dojo toolkit
- First attempt at Admin page internationalisation support
- And lots more
The main differences between 6.0 and 5.0 are:
- Configurable bandwidth limits for VPOP3 services
- POP3 service can 'hold' messages rather than delete them, as a crude backup facility
- Have options to hold messages for a certain time once they arrive in the outqueue, and to delete them if they have been in the outqueue for a long time. Eg, you could say to hold messages for 10 minutes after they are sent, so that there is chance for a message to be deleted before being sent, or you could say that messages should be held for 10 days, so that they have to be manually released before they can be sent. This can be set globally or for individual users, or even scripted using Lua
- Support mass deletions/holds for outqueue messages, using searches to be able to filter messages to hold/delete
- Add security lockouts to IMAP4/Webmail/POP3 for IP addresses which repeatedly attempt to login using bad details
- Lots of improvements to CalDAV support for better compatibility with iPads, Macs, Android phones and other devices/software
- Improvements to Webmail
- Make it easier to store the Archive main store on a network share
- Can Pause/Unpause scheduling from the status monitor
- Some improvements to Download Rules
- And lots more

- Webmail includes Calendar support
- Message Rules (VPOP3 Enterprise) to filter incoming messages to different folders on the server

- Uses PostgreSQL 9.1 to allow replication of database for warm standby servers
- All message data is stored in the database to allow easier restores/migrates, and replication to standby servers
- Most configuration data is now in the database to allow replication of configuration changes to standby servers as well
- Partial restore from backups (VPOP3 Enterprise)
- Message 'recycle bin' to undo accidental deletes easily (VPOP3 Enterprise)
- Simple mobile compatible Webmail

From VPOP3 v6 onwards we are not issuing new licence keys. You can download and use this software with your existing VPOP3 v5 licence key, as long as your software maintenance expires on or after the release date of the version of the software you are downloading.
If your software maintenance expired before the release date, then you can download older versions here (including previous v6 builds if any).
For more information, see our Blog.
If you are not sure when your software maintenance expires, you can see this, by going to My Account or the Upgrade Checker. The VPOP3 installer will check the software maintenance expiry during installation so you do not accidentally install a version you are not licenced to use.
If you are upgrading from a previous version to version 5.x or later see our upgrade instructions.
