A Look Ahead
Open-Xchange Roadmap

Open-Xchange is committed to continuously developing tried-and-trusted email, productivity and security solutions. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming releases of OX, Dovecot and PowerDNS products.

Please note that planned release dates and all roadmap information are subject to change.

What’s next? 

  • OX Abuse Shield 2.0
    • Long-term behavior analysis
      OX Abuse Shield analyzes and stores previous known good logins and detects anomalies when logins do not fit the normal profile.

    • Report API
      A report API is able to retrieve information about user logins and devices. The information can then be presented to users in OX App Suite or other applications.

    • Customizable alerting and actions
      Mobile text messages or email alerts about suspicious logins can be customized and sent to subscribers. IPs that consistently abuse the system can be blocked and operator abuse teams can be alerted about compromised users.

    • Reports, dashboards and search
      OX Abuse Shield uses Kibana to provide abuse and operator teams with reports, dashboards and search options.

  • OX Engage 1.0

    OX Engage is a patented solution that lets you inject emails on an IMAP level in your customers’ inboxes on all devices, desktop clients or mobile apps based on Dovecot Pro.

    • Email delivery based on IMAP-injection
      OX Engage injects email messages directly into your users’ inboxes, using Dovecot Pro IMAP technology. Bypassing server-side spam filtering, our unique real-time targeting abilities ensure that your messages reach your users when they are engaged.

    • Reach users independently of clients or apps
      With OX Engage you can monetize users regardless of their preferred email solution. Coverage is available for every browser-based webmail, desktop client and Mail mobile app.

    • Campaign and database management
      OX Engage comes with a convenient dashboard, schedule management and split-testing capabilities. Its open API’s let you integrate your preferred DMP, backend CRM or data warehouse to our frontend in order to easily update lists, schedule campaigns, review statistics and more.

    • In-depth analytics to optimize performance
      Thanks to a robust in-depth analytics engine, OX Engage can provide high-performance, member activity drill-down and delivery analysis. This lets you understand your users better and optimize your communications accordingly.

    • Various use capabilities
      OX Engage can also be used for non-advertising needs, for example to onboard new users or simply communicate with your customers. It also lets you notify and alert about important topics when necessary.
