I just want to pick up on the Windows/Outlook performance topic again. Customers complain about slow E-Mail search and delays when they switch between folders or from the E-Mail-View into the Calendar view etc. Those performance issues are a topic since several years. Now we have customers that seriously consider to switch back to Exchange.

The performance of the Kerio Outlook connector hasn't been improved since many years. Don't get me wrong, Kerio Connect is a great product, but in connection with Outlook and Windows the lack of performance is really annoying. Most of the Windows Customers don't want to use the Webinterface or the Kerio Connect Client and insist of using Outlook, especially customers that switched from Exchange to Kerio.

I don't understand why this problem seems not to be a subject of improvement? Are there at least any plans to address this issue in future?

This all started years ago when the "offline connector" became the only way to connect Outlook to Kerio connect. If GFI wants to make serious points, they should bring back the "on-line connector". For those who've never heard of it, it used IMAP & SMTP for mail message management, with a tiny connector stub to handle calendar, contact, and task managment.

I understand that some users need 24x7 access to their mail store, even when they don't have an internet connection. Fine, they can continue to use KOFF. The rest of us really want the speed that would come from the on-line connector.
