Hello,

is it possible to configure the Kerio Mailserver only as an inhouse Mailserver? Kerio should fetch emails from our Mailserver from our ISP via Pop3 and deliver it inhouse via Imap.
We just have DSL, with a changing IP every 24h and not the infrastructure to host an complete Mailserver. It´s better to use the Mailserver from the ISP and a local Server inhouse.

We are using KEN from AVM and its possible to create a new user with the username and password from the ISP Mailserver. KEN catches the Mail for every single account from the ISP Server and deliver the Mail to our LAN.

Outlook connects only to out inhouse Server KEN and not to the ISP Server.

Is it possible to do so with Kerio? I installed the VMWare Image, but can´t find an option for our problem.

Thanks.

You can do that. In the KMS console, go to

Configuration > POP3 Download

and configure the options accordingly.

Yes, KMS can work in house only with your wishes.
If you look within administration console under "configuration".
You will find there "POP3 download". There you can give the useraccount to POP the emailserver of your ISP.
With "Sorting and Delivery" you can dispatch the email to the users with KMS.

I don't no if your ISP also supports ETRN. But mabye that could also be a solution to your wishes.

What i can advise you is to play with KMS and you will find the solution.

thanks!

where can i setup the smtp server for sending emails?

is it configurations->smtp server-> smtp delivery ? everyone uses the same smtp server but needs to authenticate with the pop3 login data.

Yes, indeed.
Configuration > SMTP server > SMTP delivery.
You just need one authentication to send email to SMTP.

You wouldn't need to authenticate with more then one account to the ISP's SMTP server, as you can send e-mail with any e-mail address you can think of, as long as you authenticate (doesn't need to be the same)

For instance, you have foo-bar1<_a.t_>example.com, you can also login with fooadmin<_a.t_>exaple.com, and sent as foo-bar1.

The POP3 downloader should be configured for each account separately, but this shouldn't be a big issue.

This question really requires a bit of discussion.

You can leave your existing clients configured "as-is" for sending mail, which probably uses your ISP's SMTP server. This is probably best for folks with laptops who aren't always at the office when they send mail.

Or, you can change them to use the new Kerio server as their SMTP server. The kerio server will, in turn, deliver the messages to the final recipient. This has a couple of advantages -- if the DSL link is down, messages simple queue up until it comes back on-line, and intra-office mail can be delivered more quickly.

Once the kerio server has the message to deliver, you can let it deliver it directly, or use a relay host. For you, I'd recommend using your ISP's SMTP server as a relay host. Because your IP address is dynamic, some mail server will refuse to accept mail from you.

Hope this helps.
