We are evaluating Kerio as the replacement for our OSX 10.5 mail server. I need to find a way to export the mailing lists that live on 10.5 to Kerio. Anyone have any suggestions? If you can point me to a doc or link or resource, I would appreciate it.

1. Can Kerio import mailing lists?
2. If so, what format do they have to be in?

Thanks
Karell C.

See the context help in WebAdministration, Administrator's Guide or online help on our pages.

You can import members by using the Import from CSV file option in Web Administration -> Mailing lists -> Members -> Add. For details on how to create a CSV file with user accounts, refer to the manual: http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/adminguide/7.1.4/en/sect-im portaccounts.html#fig-importcsv1

as far as getting data out of mailman...

try this from terminal

/usr/share/mailman/bin/list_members <listname>

so if your list is 'press'

/usr/share/mailman/bin/list_members press

Thanks for your response, I am still playing with the trial version. I will post back and let you'll know what the best method for me was. Smile

Ok, here is what I have discovered so far.

From terminal:
cd /usr/share/mailman/bin
sudo ./list_members LISTNAME> /Volumes/XXXX/LISTNAME.txt

In my case:
sudo ./list_members Offsite> /Volumes/MacHD/Offsite.txt

Will give you a straight list of the mailing list members. You can then import that .txt file into Excel 2008 for Mac as a delimited file and save it back out as a .csv file.

I still have to test the re-import of the .csv file into Kerio according to the instructions provided previously, but we are waiting on a new Mac-Mini server to install Kerio on. Will post back when I get those results.

If your mailing list is small, it may not be a big deal to simply recreate it in a .csv file from scratch. But, we have some large size mailing lists, so this will help me a lot.

Thanks again for your time folks Very Happy

I finally got a chance this weekend to do the migration. This information worked great, and I only ran into one little problem. You need to have the word "email" at the top of your *.csv email column, or you will get an error from Kerio and it will not import the lists. Your *.csv file should look like this....

Email
bob<_at_>email.com
james<_at_>email.com
susie<_at_>email.com
david<_at_>email.com

-and so on...
