what is the max size of what the data store can be on Kerio? GB wise?

The limit is with your OS, not with Kerio.

But you'd better ask how big you think a reasonable mailbox should be. Because the bigger the mailboxes, the more difficult the backup, the more slower the synchronizations, etc. etc.

I think you shouldn't go much above a few GB per user. That will keep everything fairly ok and could be said to be within reason of what a mailbox may deliver.

Don't forget that users using mail clients (not-Webmail) can also have personal/local folders which are not counted towards the quota in Kerio. These are suitable for archives. Outlook can also automatically archive.

As regards the datastore, this consists of individual EML files and any limit on the size and number of those will be imposed by the filesystem. Modern systems like NTFS or EXT3 are unlikely to ever hit these limits.

Don't count on that. It doesn't work with KOC. It produces very quirky and unreliable results, and when I contacted support, I was told it's not supported.

I haven't tested with KOFF yet, but it's on my to-do list. Not having archive/auto-archive is causing problems, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will work. It's not in the release notes as added, so I'm not getting too hopeful yet.
