Is there a way for me to prevent users from configuring their Kerio account on their own? In other words, I'd like to have IT involved in the setup to make sure that the account is configured properly, and not on unauthorized devices.

Thanks

Don't give the user their password?

They'd still need to get into webmail to set their Out of Office Message, so that's not really an option.

I don't know what e-mail clients are in your network, but Out of Office can be managed from Outlook on Windows (with Kerio Outlook Connector installed), Entourage 2004/2008 or Outlook 2011 on Mac.

Yes...I'm familiar with the ways to see the out of office in Kerio.

I'm looking for a way to prevent users from setting up their accounts (on a desktop client, iPhone, etc.) w/o involving IT. Hiding their passwords isn't really an option for us, so was hoping for an alternate solution.

You can stop and deny services you doesn't want to be used; limit access to allowed services only from defined IP addresses (typically desktops in your local network). It will block connections from "unknown" IP addresses: home/secondary computers, mobile devices etc.

I think it should be solved on your network, not in mailserver. You shouldn't allow connection of unknown devices/computers to your network and if they are known, user shouldn't have permissions to install new application or configure account - I think it should be solved by local computer policy rules or in Active Directory.
