We have an existing Kerio Connect installation using local accounts, however we have added a windows active directory catalog and would like to use ad accounts for existing mailboxes. Is this possible or is it possible to migrate mails etc between an existing mailbox to a new one mapped to a ad user account?

Did you ever get an answer on this? I'm looking to do the same thing.

Below are steps I created back when Kerio was named Kerio Mailserver using the Kerio Administrator application. Before replying to your post I tested them under Kerio Connect 7.2.2 and since there is no Apply button in the Web Administrator interface, I did not have to do steps 6 & 10.

Here how I have changed users from Internal to LDAP.

***Do a couple of test accounts before any real user accounts.

1. Open Kerio's Admin Console.

2. Highlight the account to be changed.

3. Click Remove.
* A "Remove User" window appears.

4. Make sure "Do not delete user's mailbox" is selected.

5. Click OK.

6. Click Apply (at bottom of screen).
***MUST be done before the next step else old entry not deleted

7. Click Add and select "Activate user in directory service".

8. Click the checkbox of the user account to be added from the "active Users in directory Service" window.

9. Click OK.

10. Click Apply (at bottom of screen).
***MUST be done so that LDAP entry connects to the saved mailbox.

The "Data Source" will now read LDAP instead of Internal.

If I remember correctly, the only other thing to remember is that users sync'd from AD cannot be a member of a Kerio Connect group, though I may wrong on that. We use Kerio groups to send an e-mail to, say, everyone in 'Sales'. I do not know if Kerio can honor AD security groups in the same manner.

You can assign email addresses to AD security groups. Just do Add Group from Directory Service and it should load up all the available groups to choose from to add.
