Hello,

We are using Kerio with Mac-Mail and IMAP since several months. As we would like to change to Outlook, there is the need to use Kerio with it's exchange capabilities.

Internally this works great (no question), but from outside our office there is no way - since i don't know which ports are needed to bring Kerio to work with Outlook, iPhones and iPads.

As i'm absolutely not experienced with Exchange & Co, i do not know, if there is a difference between the ports a real exchange-server does neet and the ports, on which kerio provides the exchange-features...

Is there a good source to learn more about ports which are needed by kerio?

Thank you for any help!

Actually, there is - see http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/adminguide/en/sect-setfire.html and http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/adminguide/en/chap-services.html.

I'd recommend to open only secure ports from the outside. ActiveSync requires only HTTPS.

As well as this, make sure that port 443 is open for Exchange ActiveSync.

It is the best way to connect Iphones and Ipads. Even Kerio Outlook connector uses this port.

Be advised as well that you CANNOT change the port for Exchange activsync, it it HTTPS (443) or HTTP (80) only.

You can change it for Kerio Outlook connector but I wouldnt bother. They all work fine together.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Basically I have port 443 forwarded through our firewall to the mail server.

Do you have an SSL certificate for the mail server?

Some mobile devices are a bit funny without one. My old Windows Mobile 6.5 phone needed one to be installed and working before it would push my email to me. Manual sync did work.

You can then connect whatever you need, Ipad Iphone, Outlook etc.

You can also browse to the webmail externally as well.
