We recommend that you work on virtual machines and use snapshots so that you can go back in case of an error.
As communication protocols vary, BlueMind only supports versions of Outlook for Windows.
BlueMind is unable to guarantee compatibility with Outlook for MacOS versions.
In versions 4.0.x of BlueMind (4.0.x), folders created under the Inbox by Outlook are not mail folders but virtual folders.
BlueMind 4.1 provides supports for inbox subfolders.
Update from 4.0.x to 4.x
Warning: when you update from BlueMind 4.0.x to 4.x, virtual folders are not migrated and will be deleted.
To prevent this, you can move virtual folders outside the inbox before migrating in order to save them.
- Having BlueMind version 4.0 installed
- You must be able to access the following BlueMind addresses via HTTPS from client workstations:
- external server url (e.g. )
autodiscover url - typically replacing the first part of the external url by "
autodiscover" (e.g. )
To make sure that the server is configured properly and accessible, you can use Microsoft's online diagnostic tool: https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/
