In this scenario we have a Microsoft Outlook user with KOffline Connector that needs to have all inbound and outbound emails forwarded to another user's email address. I want this setting enabled for both webmail and KOfflineConnector.

I have changed the user settings to successfully forward to a specific address, but that only handles INBOUND messages.

The rule setting in webmail doesn't accomplish what I describe. And I don't want to fool around with Outlook rules at the user level.

Is there a way in Kerio to forward OUTBOUND (sent) items to another user's email address?

Just create a special account, and do the settings in Kerio Console to archive (see the Archive and Backup section) inbound and ouubound mails to this special account.
Works great, and without setting any special rules to remember for each new regular account... It works globally.

But doesn't that mean emails from ALL users get archived to that special email address?

Yes, from all users.
But you've just to create server side rules on the archive user to delete inboud/outboud e-mails not related to the desired user.
A bit tricky but it works Smile

Well I made it work, but without server side rules since I don't have access to the user's Outlook as described in http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/userguide/en/sect-koffrules .html

Instead I archived to a gmail account, then I created a gmail filter to forward email created by that specific user to the other user's account. A kludge to be sure, but it gets the job done (plus it fills up my gmail account in no time!).

Thanks for your suggestion!!

Kerio support tells me outbound emails cannot be forwarded presently, but they have added the request to the developers.

If you haven't access to the rules via Outlook Connector (strange...), you can still define them via the Webmail, that will give you the same result.

Login to the person's webmail, and set a filter in place there, to deliver a copy of each message to the address of your choice.

Very easy, very effective!

Setting a filter in webmail only forwards inbound emails, not email that user sends out.

Hi there. Ah yes, good point.

What if you go into Kerio Webmail for the user, and right-click on the specific Sent mailbox, and allocate Access Rights to another user? Then the 'other user' has access to the Sent messages that way?

Cheers,
D.

Perhaps...I've never used that approach. Can you elaborate? If I assign rights then how would the 'other user' gain access via the assigned rights?

Hi there.

There are various ways to access the files, but you start by allocating access from within Webmail.

Then, for example, you can 'subscribe' to the shared folders, provided that you have allocated access to that user. (For example, you can login to the 2nd account's webmail, and subscribe to the folder from Kerio web mail).

The Kerio online manual has more info. But start by "subscribing" to the folder, so that the 2nd user actually has been granted access from their end too.

Cheers,
D.
