I need some advice, and hope you Kerio users and/or staff can and will help.

We currently use Kerio MailServer for our domain mydomain.com, and have a sixty user license, of which we are using about 45. All is good there.

A separate group in my company has a listserve, which has a separate domain theirdomain.com . It operates about seven hundred mail lists. The lists cannot be operated as lists within Kerio MailServer because of the maintenance burden -- the other listserve software is much more suited to maintaining 700 lists with 2,200 members.

The smtp server on their machine is poor, and their incoming spam fiiltering is also mediocre to poor. We would like to route incoming and outgoing messages through our Kerio installation. We would not want to change their domain (listname<_a.t_>theirdomain.com). I could easily reconfigure their listServe software to use our Kerio smtp server, but I am concerned that recipients will see the theirdomain.com address with the IP from smtp.mydomain.com and flag the listserve as a spammer. What can we do to avoid that? The people who run the listserve do not remember who registered theirdomain.com, and they have even less of a clue about A records and MX records than I do (at least I know how to access and change mine!). If we need to change such records, then: 1) what exactly needs to be changed? 2) How can I find out how to get access to theirdomain.com DNS records?

About getting the incoming listserve mail through our Kerio MailServer:
There are 700 lists, each with address <listName><_a.t_><theirdomain.com>
We have a 60-user license.
Can we route incoming <theirdomain.com> mail through our Kerio MailServer and on to the internal IP -- honestly and legally -- of the listServe without buying seven hundred and sixty Kerio MailServer user licenses? We just want to be a passthrough that takes advantage of the spam filtering in Kerio MailServer.

Thanks very much in advance.

Buy a Barracuda for filtering, and use MailMan to control the lists on a OSX server.
