Good Eveving,

I have a basic kerio mailserver and recently i install a backup kerio mail server on another server machine.

the network functions as below.

the basic kms fetches all emails from my provider server, all users sending and receiving from the basic server....
tha backup kms fetches email from my provider too with a different time distance....
and everything is fine....for the incomings .
I mean that if for some reason the basic kms craches... i will connect them to the backup kms so the inboxes with be full of fine.
My problem are the sended items where are not at the backup kms.
Is there any way (to synchronize the backup kms?)

thank you very much,

I use a more simple method. I use DFS Replication on Windows Server 2008. I have an identical server with Kerio installed, but not running. That way I don't need two licenses as required by Kerio using their method of server redundancy. Only negative is the manual requirement for switching servers upon server #1 failure. It's at least quick and easy.

This still may help in your situation. Check into some type of file syncronization software solution to keep both servers identical where needed. It should be easy since Kerio uses such a simple message storage method. Also, contact Kerio Support for that KB article on redundant servers if you haven't yet, it's a good read.
