Excellent, just installed it. Looks nice, so far.

To someone at Kerio:

Can we now define custom spam rules in 6.0?

Pllllleeeasseee respond!

Wow, the new webmail interface looks freakin' slick. The calendar and "Today" stuff is cool.

I have a question for the seasoned users of KMS. I currently run KMS on Red Hat 8. I am going to get another PC for the v6 Beta and am wondering what platform works best. We don't use MS's AD, so that wouldn't be a plus for the Win2k. But I am much more familiar with Win2k, but wary because of the frequent patches.
I am leaning towards Red Hat 9 Enterprise but may sway back to Win2k for familiarity.

Thanks

I am currently debating whether to move our KMS Win2k3 box to RedHat. Both Windows and RedHat require frequent patches. Windows is easier to patch and I can run perl/bash/etc on it, so I'm leaning towards sticking with Win2k3. The stability has been great too. I would say that you should stick with Win2k. If anything install the tools you miss from UNIX.

RedHat will definitely require more admin time, and if it ain't broke, why fix it?

I am currently using Red Hat so it would be a change. I assume there would be some simple import facility to bring all the users and stuff over to a new install of v6.

Re: Can we define custom spam rules?

Yes, it appears we can! It appears that both adding rules to local.cf and adding .cf files (like from SARE) work and KMS utilizes them. I was able to add some custom rules to local.cf and add extra .cf files and they both worked. Flippin' awesome. I may actually be able to can the Postfix MX server I got and running, now.

Good job, guys. Hope this pans out well.

Webmail is also working well in Safari so far.

To Kerio: (MAX! ;)
Any schedule for a final release of 6.0?

To anyone:
I've been unable to get KMS 6.0 to integrate with AD. I keep getting LDAP errors. Anyone else get this working yet? I'll keep working on it.

I run KMS on RedHat ESv3 and it has been very easy to maintain. As far as patching, if you use the Redhat Network, it will update automatically. I don't have to spend much time at all "maintaining" the OS.

However, I do spend a lot of time on mail administration. I don't think this is OS specific though. I'm sure I would spend just as much time doing mail administration on a windows platform because KMS operates the same on both platforms. I write a lot of bash scripts to "monitor" KMS.

Since KMS basically operates the same for each OS, I say go with the platform you are most comfortable with (as far as writing scripts, etc).
