Time to change IP providers soon, so what's the best way to re-issue the IP to out Kerio mail server ?

Thanks

It depends on your platform.

My DNS host is pretty quick to update MX records, maybe 4 hours of downtime so I've set it to transfer at night and by the morning everything works.

I also use Katharion for hosted anti-spam filtering so the email is queued there if my KMS cannot be found. No mail lost at all.

Thanks Ryan,

We use a Barracuda Spam Firewall in front of our MTA and wala, nada for virus or spam. I was just wondering what in the Kerio config if anything needed to be updated ?

Cheers

As long as DNS is properly updated in a timely fashion you should be good to go.

I would recommend as far as the DNS goes that you change the TTL to 300 (or 5 minutes) so you have minimal downtime. After the change kicks in, you can change at will. Note that not all DNS providers will let you do that, so hope they do...

As far as Kerio, you just need to make sure that whatever FQDN listed in Kerio under Domains is going to be redirected as well.

That's correct. We have Nictool so it is really nice have that for controlling our DNS servers & FQDN's.
