I'm getting constantly more customers which start using IPv6. What about Kerio Connect and IPv6?

We sure would like that, and 64-bit as well.

At least the suggestion already made it to the Review stage. Less than three years ago.

... and just now I got an email notification that it was started. So this would be in what? 8.6? 8.7?

Out of curiosity. What is you main reason for adopting IPv6?

Not the op but about the ipv6 question pavel ... because in some countries its already hard to get an ipv4 or even impossible.

Also it's the future and the ip adress ranges are already all given away.

I already use ipv6 with ipv4 fallback on my private connection at home and it's standard with every new connection installed in germany - even if not activated in the router.

ipv6 has many improvements over ipv4 (like route discovery enforcement etc.).

Also the coding and change for it shouldn't be that hard. The OS does all the connection stuff, kerio just needs to update the GUI and the rules / logs. So you can type an address like [2008:23sd:23e2::1] (usual ip check would say "not a XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX format"). Or the log might need a small lookup update. It's really not that hard.

I agree with Maerad here: getting IPv4 addresses is getting harder, usage of IPv6 is rising.

Today we wouldn't setup a mail server that doesn't support IPv6, not because we need it now, but because it gives us the chance to do some testing well before switching over. Other server software was supporting IPv6 for years, their implementation can be considered mature, which will likely not be true for another few versions of Kerio.

To be clear, major adoption reason is lack of IPv4 addresses for clients, right?
Because receiving emails over IPv6 only makes no sense.

We handle millions of emails a day on our platforms. Which have been IPv6 enabled for over a decade.
If we look at our statistics 32% of these emails go over IPv6. Yes IPv6 only would make no sense.
But equally 'no IPv6 enabled mailserver' makes no sense as well.

Of course IPv6 only makes no sense, and IPv4 will be used for a while in local networks, but as Maerad pointed out IPv6 is common for customer access in Germany already, with IPv4 access tunneled by the provider.

I understand that supporting IPv6 in Kerio is a major task, but this makes it even stranger that apparently not much work was done to upgrade the different parts one after another.

I find it very hard to stay calm in a discussion about the sense or nonsense of IPv6 on a mail server. Where have you been the last 10 years when you ask why some one needs IPv6?
