I didn't want to resurrect the old thread here but I have the exact same question. Kerio is installed on a CentOS server and we have Windows 2008 AD. When using KOFF client I can authenticate against Active Directory manually but not via Secure Password Authentication. Since our users have to change their passwords periodically it would be useful if there was a way for me to do this. In the original thread there doesn't seem to be any definitive answer on whether or not this is possible. Could anybody get me further info on this?

Bump. Does anyone know if this is possible? This is becoming a serious issue and we are not willing to migrate to the Windows version of Kerio due to cost and stability concerns. Any pointers would be helpful.

What happens when using manual authentication is this:

  1. User changes AD password during Windows logon when prompted (every 60 days)
  2. User opens Outlook with KOFF and password saved
  3. KOFF apparently tries the expired password several times because it locks the user's account in AD before prompting them for the new password

If KOFF would prompt the user after just one password failure this wouldn't be a serious issue because they could just enter their password and be done with it. Group Policy is set to allow up to 5 password failures so KOFF must be sending the wrong password at least that many times. Obviously SPA would solve this issue but I'm open to other solutions. I would like to just tell users not to save their passwords in Outlook at all but I tried suggesting that and it didn't go over very well.
