We are running on the latest release version of Kerio. We have many emails coming into our users mailboxes that aren't truly spam but are spam like. For example, we are in the insurance industry and sometimes we get important emails from the insurance companies that are mailed to all agents, but the majority of the time the emails are trivial (the insurance industry in the US really should find a better way). But these emails clutter up inboxes and waste user time.

What we'd like to do is have rules that find these messages for all users (based on sender mostly) and push the emails into a public folders that someone will maintain (informing management of important emails, personal lines dept of emails related to them, etc).

I can't find a way to do this without using outlook rules, but that is really a less than ideal solution because it requires rules for everybody be setup individually and that outlook is open to process said rules.

Is there anyway in Kerio to handle this situation?

Thanx,

OLIVER

Kerio rules are server side. So they will be applied as soon as the message enters the mailbox. However, still need to make rules for each mailbox.

Correct - Outlook does *not* need to be open. But you do have to create for each user. You can create the rules in Webmail, so if you have users' passwords, you don't need to visit each user's computer.

Well, I should say, if you create the rules in Outlook via the KOC, or Webmail, not using the standard Outlook method. Check the manual for details.

OK,

I figured out how to make the rules in webmail, can't figure out how to do it from the KOC. Also, it seems that it writes a little script. Is there any documentation on this stuff?

I'd like to have a rule that copies emails from a certain company into a public folder, but only from whoever receives that email first...So for instance, an insurance company sends the same email to all employees in one department. The same rule will apply for everybody which will first check to see if an email with an identical header field or subject or whatever is in the public folder. If not, it will move the email there. If there already is one, it will delete the email from the users inbox. Is this possible? If so, where can I find the docs so I can do this?

Thanx,

OLIVER

Right click the top of the tree in outlook "Outlook Today [Kerio Outlook Connector Store]" and take properties, then go to the Rules tab.

All of this being server side, this is functionally the same as setting them up in Webmail.

Has anyone submitted a suggestion to make this something that can be centrally managed? Most users have no clue on this stuff...

Alternatively it could be something where rules could be exported and imported to another user using the current interface (this would atleast be faster than creating new rules from scratch).

Also, anyone know where I can find docs on the scripting language that the rules use?

Sieve is the language these mail filter rules are written in. Details can be found on

http://www.fastmail.fm/docs/sieve/index.html

Wikipedia also has an article on it

Hope this helps
