I've supported Outlook with Exchange since the mid-90s, but only recently started supporting Kerio. I've been very impressed with the product, but I have a few questions.

I've got a few users who never want to archive, and keep everything on the server. I've got a couple of questions I'd love to get some answers to.

Is there a size limitation for email boxes on the server?

Is there a size limitation for the store.fdb file before it starts getting corrupted or messes up like the old .pst or .ost files used with Exchange?

I remember with Outlook 2000 you really couldn't allow pst files to get past 2GB before they would just lock up. Then with Outlook 2003, and 2007 the default was 4GB, but you can tweak the registry to allow up to 20GB.

I am curious to know if there are similar restrictions with the store.fdb file. This way I know when to force the users to start archiving.

Kerio stores each email/contact/calendar item as a separate file in a browsable file system so the only limitation is what storage you can throw at it.

Just tonight I had a user accidentally trash their INBOX. I stopped the server, unzipped last night's backup and browsed to her INBOX folder, selected the missing files and put them back into her folder inside the current mailstore. I then started the server back up and they were happy.
