Do you want to create a new user and check if the address is not in conflict with another entity?

Let see how it is done in Web Administration for Kerio Connect.

During creating a new user, the background check is performed whether the picked username already exists or not. If so you can easily choose another name even before you try to send data to the server and end up with an error.

Very useful in automated registration wizards.

For example, in Kerio APIs Client Library for PHP, you can do it as follows.

$params = array(
  'addresses' => array($username),
  'updatedEntity' => array('kind' => 'EntityUser'),
  'domainId' => $domainId);

$result = $api->sendRequest('Server.findEntityByEmail', $params);
print ($result['entities'])
  ? 'Username is not available.'
  : 'Username is available.';

$username - requested username
$domainId - domain ID in where user is being checked

Neat. I'm looking forward to the day when I have 'spare' time to play with this new API toy.
