Hi everyone,
We're using Kerio Mailserver for about one year without major problems, we have now about 100 users using MS Outlook with the offline client. Kerio is installed on a virtual machine running Linux (Centos 5). We do the Kerio backup this way:
Every day we do a backup using "TAR" to the "/var/kerio/mailserver/" directory but only coping files that have been change in this day, and weekly (every sunday) we do a full backup of this directory (using "tar" too). we transfer this files using "SCP" to a Windows box, because the server is VMWare ESX 3i and we can't use USB Storage direcly connected to the server.

We do it this way because in case we need to restore or look for an old message we could easily restored from the backup file in any computer because the backup is in "tar" format and gzip compressed (we can open this files using "winrar").
I would like you to give me your opinion about this backup method or if you can see some problems with it.

Thank you in advanced for your time.
Best Regards.

Why would you do this over Kerio's built in backup?

I think this way is easier for access the emails backed up from any other computer without Kerio Mailserver installed.

Kerio's built in backup creates zip files.
