**Note:** For some users with Windows Defender, there is a chance you may receive a false positive virus alert when downloading the file from your browser. The recommended workaround is to temporarily disable Windows Defender long enough to download the file then re-enable. You can then manually scan the downloaded file with Windows Defender (or other A/V program of your choice) and the file should scan successfully. We have reported this false positive to MS/Windows Defender and hope they will resolve the issue soon.

For existing AWAM users Starting with version of DAT-MAIL, a one-time conversion of the AWAM profiles to a newer format is required.   The AWAM service will not run until this conversion is performed.  The conversion can be performed by starting up the AWAM Control Center and follow the prompts to allow the conversion to run. 



Known Issues:








T18616:  We added options for Political and Election mail to PMOD requests.


T18767:  We improved the content of an error message which can occur when trying to split a file.




Bug Fixes:


B18613:  In some circumstances the DAT-MAIL Database Service Utility’s ‘Test of Folder Availability’ button did not use the correct folder when making changes to the backup folder path.  This did not affect operation of the service but could give false negative or positive readings when testing a change in path. This has been fixed.


B18617:  In wbSCAN we revised the alert text which displays when the user attempts to delete an exception from the system when the exception has already been assigned.


B18618:  In wbSCAN we fixed the QA scan feature to show correct results when re-scanning a barcode.


B18652:  We fixed a problem reported by a client with duplicate eInduction count after AWAM-processing (import, postprocess, merge).   Ticket 86293


B18720:  We fixed an issue in wbSCAN with the ‘Create Sibling’ button in the ‘Search Barcode’ operation which was causing program freezes in service mode.


B18737:   We fixed an issue found where trying to delete old temp files was freezing the Data Maintenance Utility. Also, ‘Delete old IPS temp files’ now works from the DM Setup window.   Ticket 86766
