I just keep in mind for long time about:
+++ Why Kerio Connect message store is not encrypted like MS Exchange Server ? because if message store is not encrypted the Windows Administrator Account can easily read other user mail message.

This is a good "idea" to be taken by Kerio for new releases. Message SHOULD be encrypted. Perhaps there should be a possibility for the Administrator, to recover and see the "envelope" of the message, but the message itself, should not be visible for everybody with administration rigths.

But Exchange doesn't encrypt their stores either. Exchange mailboxes are .edb b-tree files, so the data may be obfuscated but it's not encrypted.

Well, if you're the administrator you can read the mail anyway, no matter if it's encrypted or not. Someone or something must know the encryption key, and that would likely be the administrator. If the encryption is done with the user's password, it can be easily changed by the administrator.

What are you trying to avoid, non-technically speaking?
