So we're still trialling Kerio and we're now 95% certain that it's the one for us but I have a of query...

Our setup will be:

1 AD Domain = abc.loc

1st mail domain = def.com using AD connector
2nd mail domain = ghi.com using AD connector
3rd mail domain = klm.com using Kerio internal user database


Will this work OK? Are there any 'gotchas' I should be looking out for? Is there something I've missed I need to consider?

A mail domain is a 1 to 1 relationship with the AD domain. You can't have two mail domains using the same AD domain for authentication. There's no way to distinguish which mail domain is authenticating, or which mail domain a user account is active for.

Unless you alias domain 2 to domain 1.

IE configure your domains and in the definition of domain 1 put in domain 2.

All users will be in both domains, with exactly the same setup, plus it will count only as one message store for both domains, and a single user in both domains only counts as a single user in your license.

It is just the email domain that differs.

I'm not sure the alias will work as I don't want to create one user in two domains. Am I misunderstanding how the alias works?

I need two separate users in two different mail domains who will log onto the one AD.

Won't it work if he only imports some users in one of the mail domains and other users in the second mail domain? Then I guess that both domains can use the same AD.

There's one thing that bothers me about KMS's way of using AD and it's that the AD login name is always used as the primary email address of the users. So if a user is called jdoe in AD, then his primary email address wil be jdoe<_a.t_>example.com (if example.com was the email domain).

That's one thing to look out for...

Does this work? This is how I'd like to run it.

If KMS uses the login name as the primary email, how will this work with us where the login names have spaces in them? John Doe for example?

I can't guarantee that it will work, but I can't see why from my experiences... You could test it out for yourself, since it's pretty easy to install and configure on a test machine and with a couple of extra domains that you may have lying around.

The loginname is your Windows 2000 login name. You can see it in the Account tab in the users properties in Active Directory Users and Computers. It's usually just the real name without spaces if you haven't specified something else. If you have previously used Exchange and used initials as the email address, then the login name is probably already initials.
