I think I know the answer to this and it disappoints me, but I wanted to get clarification. It seems Kerberos is only supported at the server level and not at the client level with Kerio. Meaning Mail.app or Outlook can not be configured for kerberos and thus lacks SSO capability.

I was hoping Kerio would be solution but because we have strict password policies I can't ask the end users to change passwords in three different locations every month.

Tell me I'm overlooking something...

You're partly right... If your Kerio Connect server is installed on a Windows computer, then you can use "Secure Password Authentication" which is using NTLM. This allows KOFF to use the Windows logon credentials and give the users SSO.

This won't work if Connect is installed on a Mac og Linux server.

Thanks, I was referring to an Apple installation. Do you know if you have Kerio installed on a Windows server (AD), do the Mac mail clients have single sso when authentication against AD?

I wonder if Kerio spends more time on the Windows product then the Mac product. I know Kerio will never tell me what product is more polished, but I wonder what Kerio administrators think.

AD or OD integration / Windows or Mac OSX

I remember testing with NTLM authentication in Apple Mail and seem to remember that it worked, but I'm not 100% sure. The problem is that I don't think it will work if you're disconnected from your LAN because then you haven't got a Kerberos ticket.

Thanks... now I need to decide if Kerio is the right choice or maybe Open Directory needs to go.
