We're looking at hosting for a company with 20 users and a total of somewhere between 1000-5000 contacts. They are mostly on Windows running Outlook, but also have a few Macs. The main question is how well Kerio handles thousands of contacts. I know on the Mac side it might be best to use Kerio Connector rather than CardDAV due to performance. What about on the Windows side? Can Exchange deal with it? This would be on an Xserve already handling 150 users.

The next question is, on the Windows side can they set up this as a second Exchange account in Outlook? They are initially not going to use the email. Contacts/Calendar only, no email since they are using another provider for that.

Yes, you can add the account as a second account, but you choose the Kerio type, not Exchange! (You need the Outlook connector on the client!)

I'm not sure with all those contacts - why not fire up a demo install and test?

As long as it's Outlook, you at least won't bang your head agains data not 'supported' by Exchange/Outlook/ActiveSync!
Mac Address Bok is MUCH more flexible, and can do a lot of tricks that won't show up in either Webmail nor AS clients.. Blame it on the boggie!
