I am a Kerio hosting reseller. I received and email yesterday asking about signing up for Kerio Hosting account. I responded with an offer to talk to the person by phone. I received this email in response:

---------------------------------------------------------

Do you do email or online sign up because I am deaf and dumb and there
is no way I can speak to you

---------------------------------------------------------

What is really strange is that I received an almost identical request 6 months ago from a "different" person. Here was there response to me then:

---------------------------------------------------------

I would have love to call you on phone but there is no way that could happen because I am deaf and dumb and the only ways you can contact me is either email or post

---------------------------------------------------------

Nothing ever came of the first email. I did send him pricing, but I've been in this business a while now and this seemed a bit odd to me. Not sure if there is anything to this or not but Just posting this here so that others can be aware.

I will like to host Kerio Email Server here I don't know the method of
payment that you accept, please give me more details about your
hosting services

Here's what I got when I told them I needed more info:



I wish I could but I cannot because I am deaf and dumb

That's the same email I got. Not quite sure what their angle is but definitely feels "fishy" to me.

Yeah, they wanted 2 seats so it's not worth the possible aggravation.

We go the same thing, the first thing we do is check there domain out and it did not add up. They have a website with only one page(Strange for an IT install company) and has 8 MX DNS entry's. This does not add up to have 8 MX entry's and only have 2 email accounts.
