I have recently started evaluating Exchange-alternatives, and eventually came across Kerio MailServer as well. This may come as a shock to some, but I actually started by reading the documentation.

Much to my horror.

The "Kerio MailServer6 Administrator's Guide 1997-2006 Kerio Technolgies, Release Date: July 10, 2006", on page 80, states that


Kerberos 5
Kerberos is a protocol used for authorization and authentication. It secures network traffic. Kerio MailServer uses it to authenticate users against the Kerberos server (e.g. in Active Directory)

(Emphasis mine.)

Given that KMS seems to be a product being on the market for quite some time, and also given that Kerio, besides KMS, has other security-related products, including a VPN solution, this single paragraph immediately raised a big red "you should be getting the hell out of here, right now, and fast!" sign. The way it looks from where I sit is that Kerio either has serious fundamental problems with fundamental security concepts (I would like to believe this is not the case), or Kerio has serious fundamental problems with quality management.

I can not decide which is more scary to a potential customer (that would have been me).

What do others have to say about this?

While it is worded incorrectly, any person of at least normal intelligence would understand the meaning by reading the preceding and following sentences.

Is your evaluation methodology really all about looking for editing errors in the documentation? If so, there is probably no suitable solution for you.

I will bring this to the attention of our documentation team.
