I've been watch this part of Kerio Mail Server developement for a while, but still nothing new i guess:
1. AD sync is poorly configurable
1.A. Not able to set specific AD query string (i.e. to get only "users" and or only from specific OU).
1.B. AD sync for groups is bad - only one group appeared in list (instead of 3 groups which have e-mail filled in AD - maybe because the other two have many members or some members without e-mail filled?)
2. Groups are poorly configurable
2.A. Cannot set a group to have its own storage (like a shared folder) instead of being just a sort of a mailing list.
2.A.i. Cannot set up group storage folders and rules for these folders
2.B. Cannot assign rights for users in a group (i.e. some can only read, others are admins, others can send and read etc. - separate flags - well, there are no flags whatsoever)
2.C. I assume it is impossible to send message from group's e-amil address and therefore it is impossible to control if a particular user is a member of a group when sending messages from group's e-mail address.


Some of these options are rather basic and often very convenient to use. Still they are not there.

MOST of this functionality (if not all) is covered (for example) by IceWarp (previously Merak) mail server. I would like to hear Kerio's thoughs on this.

First of all.
This is the user forum, not the technical support or developers from Kerio. Those who respond from Kerio are helping like a user.
Otherwise the answer came from resellers or (beta)users.

About your points:
1 ab ) The AD sync is running perfect. The mailbox's will be created directly from AD Users and Computers. From any OU.
Groups dito.
2) I think your missing the use of the groups.
MS way is that a distribution group is to distribute. So e-mail can be distribute to the user mailbox who is member of the group. If you want a mailbox for a group of people than that's a fake person who's mailbox will be shared along the group of people. This is also the way with Exchange. And Connect is a Exchange alternative.
Group e-mail can be divided in two groups.
Distribution and Group Mailbox (shared).
