I am working as mailing solution architect since last three years and loving to suggest for Kerio to end users. It is really a alternate to MS Exchange. It is already proven that Kerio Connect can support more than 4500 (yes, four thousand five hundred). Although Kerio Connect is a good choice over Exchange, but it lacks some features like:
1. Password Reset Option when end users forget their password. There must me an option to mention alternate email address while creating mail id in kerio connect and there will be a link in login page as " Forgot Password?". If a user forgets his/ her password, he/ she will have to answer the secret question and Kerio Connect Server will send a new password to that alternate mail id.

2. Change Password at First Login option must be included. Most of the users don't change the password that is provided by Mail Server Administrator. Enabling Change Password at First Login, we can force users to change their password. The same feature is available in exchange.

3. In admin console of kerio connect, there is no reporting tool as such. We need to know which users are inactive, which users have reached their mail box quota, to which mail domain maximum email was sent, from which domain maximum mail was received, which users are locked out due to maximum login try with wrong password.

4. In Kerio Connect, we can host multiple mail domain. That is pretty good, but each mail domain must have it's customized webmail login page. At preset all the mail domains use the single login page. This is not good at all. Different mail domains will have different SSL certificate. At preset we can generate a single CSR for the whole mail server or rather all domains. It must be corrected in next release.

Full ACK. But we need an Password Policy too. When users start changing passwords to 123456 we have a big problem.
