Hello. I've been using Kerio Connect Mail Server for about a year and it's been working fine, but I'm concerned about a change we want to make.

Here's our current scenario

We have domain1.org setup as (primary), and domain2.net as an alias. We have some users that are just configured in Kerio; however, most of the users were are Active Directory users that were either imported from Active Directory or Setup in Kerio by some kind of Kerio add-in that is installed on our domain server. Our domain server is configured as domain1.org

However, we want kerio to send mail by default using domain2.net. Is there an easy way to do this? Am I able to make the alias the primary domain without loosing user information (our Active Directory server would remain unchanged)? Any other side effects I should for which I should keep an eye open or be aware?

My SSL certificate is installed under domain1.org. Will it still work if domain1.org is no longer the primary domain?

Thank you.

Kinda shooting from the hip here but...

Changing the domain name should be straight forward. Under "domains" in the admin console, remove the alias (domain2.net), then use the "rename" button on the "general" tab. Then add the original domain name in as an alias. I do not know what effect this will have of clients (notably KOFF).

User's that are automatically added by the active directory add-in will (I think) have e-mail addresses that match the domain settings. I use kerberos, so I'm not sure.

SSL certificates are usually linked to a host name, so if you change that, you will need a new certificate. This is not always the case, so you'll need to check.
