Does anyone know if it is possible to have a domain shared between Kerio and an Exchange server? And what about Groupwise? We are merging three businesses into one and all have different mail servers, and no one wants to change of course.

Thanks

You can have Kerio deliver unknown email accounts to another server, so just point it at the Exchange server. That's under Domain->Your domain->Forwarding tab.

Yeah, that's how we do things at the moment, but we will need a proper distributed domain soon. We need shared contacts, calendars, resources, etc. I don't know if I will be able to persuade our sister company's IT Director that his Exchange server is a bloated piece of cr<_at_>pware born of a monopolistic dinosaur, and that he should switch to the infinitely better alternative that is Kerio.

I might work on rephrasing my pitch a little of course Wink

The idea is sound, the pitch was a bit intense....The Kerio migration tool works well with Exchange, maybe you could demo it for them with moving over those accounts and showing how everything is still there?

To have an unique dom ain, really working with a common contact list and share calendars, you must convince 2 of the 3 to move to one platform. Other solutions will give you a los of headache and work (hand work) to keep those thing syncronized writing interface programs, etc.etc. Better solution is to move to one platform, best solution comes looking at the cost of having Kerio or Exchange platform. I suggest you should read, and make reluctant people read the article on ownership cost comparison between kerio and exchange.

no matter that this article comes from Kerio, figures are close to actual world.

I often find my sense of humor doesn't translate through this medium Wink

OK, just thought I'd check. Thanks.
