Hi,

if I call the search by clicking at the magnifier I'm just able to search in the subject field. Is this a configuration problem of my server or works it as designed? If it works as designed I would be interested in the reason. Smile

And is there any posibility to search inside the whole folder if it has more than one sites. At me it only searches the displayed messages. Sad


Asking greetings

You can specify where you want the search to search. You can ask it to search in all of your folders, or some.

What you cannot do is search for words the message body. Only for words in the subject, or messages of a certain date, size, from or to a certain person, etc.

And that's the problem, why it is not possible to search in the message body? Because the search script is, of course, running on the server and normally U should have an object model of a message. This object model should have a method to return if a given field holds or contains a given value.

But's just my two pennies worth of about twenty years experience in software development. Wink

Experienced greetings

'Body-searching': a much requested feature.

Kerio states (at least that's what you can read between the lines if you've been on this forum long enough) they don't offer this functionality because it would place too much (uncontrolable) load on the server.

Kerio doesn't use a database for storing all messages, but simply keeps them as seperate files in the server's filesystem. This certainly has benefits, but a downside is that implementing things like searching is a lot more problematic.

The specifics are obviously only known to Kerio and its developers, but this is the way it is now.

OK, but should this not to be a decision of the Administrator to en- or disable such a feature if there is such a feature?

For small business like mine it would be no problem or if your server is a high end machine, isn't it?

Suggesting greetings

Well, perhaps you're right. But as long as Kerio doesn't agree, it will get you nowhere Twisted Evil Smile

I think at the moment they cannot give you the choice, because they haven't even implemented the feature. I guess they feel it would bring them into trouble.

Give people the option and they will turn it on and they will complain with Kerio for not making the search faster/more efficient/less load on the server/better/etc. No amount of "use at you own discretion" messages etc. will change that. It's my guess that that's why it's not implemented. Kerio will not implement it until they are sure it will run without any problems on the vast majority of they customer's servers.

Hi,

Drop Google Desktop search onto the box, which runs on a local loopback address -- then use stunnel to get to that remotely..

Someone who did something very similar;
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=3939

Of course, anyone then can search anyone else's e-mails.


Seems to me that Kerio could have a background process which runs at low priority and has idle capabilities if disk utilization is too high (Microsoft provides these stats if you enable them.) The process would keep updated indexes of e-mail available for searching via webmail/KOC. New/changed/deleted e-mails would be appended to a file from which this process would then scan from.

You would require at least double the disk space, but that'd be worth it to me.
