Alrighty, we got an interesting problem with KMS and I wanted to throw it out there...

I THINK Kerio admitted that there was a problem, but I want to ask your guys' opinions on the situation.

Kerio works pretty well in most situations, however we do have an interesting problem...

Kerio works fine when we are using it to just do emails and whatnot, however what we want it to do is to be able to have several different emails to be pulled down by KMS and to go into one centralized place. The idea is to have a comcast email, and a couple others to be pulled by KMS and when KMS replies to where the from address stays from the original email destination (if comcast, then from comcast), not from where KMS is located.

The problem is this though. We can get Kerio to pull from other emails, not a problem. However when we reply it comes from the domain that KMS is located at, and NOT from the original email KMS pulled from. If we setup a personal folder within Outlook and route it that way, then no problems, however it's a pain in the but to see where the email is unless one goes to the personal folder. Also when one sets it up to where Outlook pulls from a server (instead of Kerio) then when one replies and goes through Kerio the email looks like a draft, not like an email. In essence, KMS doesn't like to be excluded from the process.

Any ideas on this guys?

That's how e-mail works. It doesn't matter who is in the TO address, the e-mail was delivered to your KMS account, you're sending a reply from the KMS account, that's what goes in the FROM address. People get mail all the time where their address isn't in the TO field - think CC and BCC. If your FROM address on replies was based on the TO address of the original message, at least half of the mail you send would have an incorrect address as the sender.

Only advice I can give is make the users use webmail for personal accounts, or stop using personal accounts at work.
