I would like to install Kerio Connect for a friend of mine with the following at present:
There are 3 PCs running Windows 7 Home Premium in a Workgroup with MS Outlook 2010 on all of them.
There are 4 company email accounts configured on all computers such that all get a copy of the same email. (using 'Leave a copy on server' in outlook)
The purpose of installing Kerio is to:
1: Be able to share contacts and calendar events
2: Be able to collaborate customers' emails and for example one employee/user can flag an email as 'Dealth With', other computers should get the same email flagged accordingly so there is no duplication of activity against a given email.
Q1: Does Kerio has any such feature to achieve No. 2 ?
Q2: Do I need a separate server with a version of Windows 7 that has Active Directory Support before I can make use of Kerio Connect?
Q3: The company has a domain xyz.co.uk and emails are hosted at a hosting provider which hosts the website for the company too. In the Manual Section 'Before you start', it talks about setting DNS and MX records but it is not clear where exactly do you do that. Is it under 'Network and Sharing' in Windows 7?
Many thanks for help.
It sounds like you are looking for a CRM solution rather than a mail server.
