Hello,

I thinking of using kerio mailserver in the future. But before I make my dessicion, I have some questions.

Is it possible to stiil use my ISP emailacount and send only the email to the kerio mailserver when it is up? Because when my server is for some reasons down for 2 weeks, then i lost my emails for two weeks.

Is it also possible to make a imap4 connection to my isp, to have al my email on my own kerio mailserver and on my ISP email account?

I hope someone can help me with my question.

Thanks a lot,

Smika

You could have the ISP's email service be the backup MX record "just in case".

Although if your server is down for 2 weeks at a time that's bad news.

Chapter 7 in Kerio Mailserver Administrators guide tell you how to configure a backup server.

1) check if your ISPs mail server supports ETRN
2) get your ISP to configure a backup server for your domain and set up a MX record
(just configure the domain without any mailboxes)
3) on your Kerio mail server - configure ETRN download with the necessary data about
your account at the backup server
4) at your Kerio mail server - configure a schedule for checking the backup server for
mail - I prefer to check every 1 hour.

I prefer to let the primary server check the backup server - thus saving cpu cycles at the backup server and I will keep control.

I have used this to set up a Kerio Mail server as backup server - it works.

Thanks for your advise. I found today an ISP who support ETRN, SO i am thinking to move from my old ISP to this one. It also cost my 10 euro less every year Smile.
