Hi, after watching the Apple WWDC keynote and reading some other stuff online, I'm wondering which direction Kerio will go with the MailServer product.

With Snow Leopard SERVER, Apple is introducing iCal Server 2, along with some other improvements in Mail and Address Book.

With Snow Leopard CLIENT, Apple has announced that Mail, iCal, and Address Book will all support Exchange 2007 natively.

I'm wondering which method Kerio will pursue for Mac users and which way will give us the most functionality. Will Kerio Mailserver emulate Exchange 2007 for Mac clients that way, or will Kerio Mailserver add the functions that the new iCal server 2 has?

I'm particularly interested in which method might give iPhone or other Exchange Activesync users access to public calendars wirelessly.

Anyone, especially Kerio admins, have any comments?

Thanks!

I'm sorry but this forum is not intended to provide official public announcements or comments from Kerio.

I'm not going to comment Snow Leopard features. It's still a beta and under NDA.
I can't talk about public folders on Exchange - it's a question for Microsoft. But the truth is that neither the protocol (ActiveSync) nor devices (WM, iPhone) are designed to support shared or public folders or user permissions.

However, as you probably know, new iPhone firmware contains CalDAV client. You can create multiple CalDAV accounts and use them for subscribing shared calendars of other users or resources or public calendars. This unique feature will be available only with Kerio MailServer. Exchange users cannot see public calendars in the iPhone.

Personally, Kerio will still rule the roost because Snow Leopard Server has no Outlook support (that I can tell). Sure, it will be great for Mac users however I don't know of too many 100% Mac shops, all have at least a few Windows computers that will need to connect.

I think I'm safe in this discussion, since we're only discussing stuff that's on Apple's public website. But I would assume the Snow Leopard Exchange functionality will eventually work with Kerio assuming that KMS reaches feature parity with the required Exchange version (Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 Update Rollup 4, according to their public website).

Kerio won't discussion their future releases publicly, but I imagine they would work towards compatibility in the future.*

The real question is how will Kerio interact with the new Entourage.

As far as Apple Mail server, windows can still interact via IMAP and POP. Calendar and contacts I can not speak to though.
