The installation binaries below can be used to perform both new installs and upgrade versions (e.g. run the setup executable and install over the top) – the IIS and Active Directory configuration remain the same if you have installed a previous version.

I have also included a full Installation and Users Guide within this download section.

Support for Dynamic Distribution Lists

Version 2.5 now includes support for reporting on single Dynamic Distribution Lists. You will see a new button at the top of the screen entitled “Dynamic”.


Dynamic Distribution List Properties

You can also review the properties of a dynamic distribution list by click on the folder next to the distribution list name.


Group and User Properties

You will see that there are a couple of new buttons within the interface – these allow for you to expose relevant properties of both Distribution Groups and Mailbox properties.
