Hi,

I have been informed that a "legal" requirement for a client's mailserver is that all email, that is all email sent or received by the server must be copied to a specific account.

I see from the manual I can make a copy of all the email that passes through the server go to an email address. What the manual doesn't make clear is whether an account on the server is a valid destination or not as there is potential for a mail loop - I don't wish to DoS my own server!

Can anyone please clarify whether this is possible or not?

KMS has a simple function called BACKUP.

if enabled, a copy of ALL incoming + outgoing mail will be stored in the defined backup folder.

this is valid for:

extern -> intern
intern -> extern
intern -> intern
extern -> extern (messages forwarded to an external adress)

That kind of backup is regrettably not acceptable...

Crazy I know, but they want the backup online in an accessible folder.

Currently I am using backup to forward all email (e2i, i2e, i2i, e2e) to a single external address. Yes, I know the backup folder can be accessible to Admin, but Admin is not the same person who must have copies of all email.

Unfortunately they need a full audit trail...

This is very easy to realize.

- create a user group called <backup_admin> and assign users to the group
- in configuration -> backup -> backup folder administrator you can select the user or group for access to the backup folder
-> select the group <backup_admin>

now the only thing left is to login with a user assigned to <backup_admin> group via web interface and subcribe the backup folder (webinterface -> settings-> folder subscriptions)

have fun... :)

I'm with Zakk on this one, you definitely want to use KMS's backup functionality. You *can* make it available online via folder subscriptions.

I would do this, as its much easier and much more flexible than forwarding everything to a special account.

Kerio MailServer 6.7.1 w/AD
Windows Server 2003 SP 1
Dell PowerEdge 2850 (Dual Xeon 3.2ghz and 2 GB RAM)
~1300 users
~1000+ concurrent IMAPS connections
iPhone users
Outlook 2007 KOFF users
Apple iCal 10.5/10.6 users

Thanks Zakk.

I'll go with that approach.
