Hello, i want to migrate my 20 users that are connection to our provider using POP to a new Kerio server.

Here is the list and order i came with and questions at each step, if you have better idea let me know

-Install server (windows and Kerio)We are going to run on a win3k 4GB 4 x 73GB RAID 10

-Configure the domaine in kerio with all options (Spam anti-virus etc)

-Activate user account by selecting them from the AD list

- Configure the necessary ports on the firewall.

- Install KOC on every clients and connect to account.

- Ask provider to change the MX to point to our IP.

- Start receiving new mail...

- Export all the local PST and import it back to Kerio.

- Delete the POP account and close the PST.

- Go to bed Smile

Anny more idea?

Thanks

Hi,

Just a few tips:

1. Why not use KOFF?

2. Make sure that the username in AD matches the users email addresses before the <_a.t_> or create aliases that matches the email address. Else the email will be lost when it starts entering KMS.

3. You should probably export the PST before configuring the Kerio account in Outlook. If you don't then you will end up with a few duplicate mails because mails received from KMS will also end up in the PST.

4. I some users are very dependend on Outlook rules, then you should make a note of them because they need to be recreated in their KMS account.

I think that's it. Good luck with it... I migrated 80 users (60 Outlook and 20 Entourage) from two different Exchange serves a month ago and it has mostly been a positive experience. Some users complain about that Outlook is slow, but I haven't been able to find out what the problem is.

I would also, as a backup, leave the current mailserver in the MX loop (at a lower priority / higher number) and setup Kerio to POP in mails from the old mail server for a month or so to make sure that your system proves out. If, at the end of a month, you're still showing a lot of messages being received via POP, you may want to double check your network settings.

Do you mean the Internet domain og the Active Directory domain? If it's the Internet domain, then just test with some other domains that you have control over.

If it's the AD domain then just don't enter any AD information in Kerio and test with local users. When the AD is available you can enter the information and activate the users that you need. It's actually that simple.
