howdy

we are in the process of upgrading our kerio install from v6 to v8

in the process we are also looking to migrate our users from entourage 2008 to outlook 2011 (mac)

currently everyone is IMAP (with some legacy data in "folders in my computer")... but we are looking to migrate everyone to an exchange account (or is it best to remain IMAP)

what is the best method for migrating

thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Upgrading is pretty straight forward, here's an article about upgrading:
http://kb.kerio.com/article/how-do-i-update-kerio-connect-wh en-a-new-version-is-available-451.html

If you are upgrading from PowerPC, you may want to read this article as well:

Make sure you have a GOOD backup before you do it of course.

As for Entourage to Outlook 2011, I'd suggest removing Kerio from Entourage, (Optional removing Entourage), install Outlook and use the integration to configure the profile (Open webmail and click on integration with Mac), it will configure Outlook with EWS all by itself.

thanks for the reply

i just tried upgrading from entourage 2008 to outlook 2011 using the integrate with mac

all worked well... however... none of the project tags were transferred (i know that projects are no longer supported)... when i opened my old 2008 database directly in 2011 they showed up as categories... is there any way to have them remain when creating an exchange account from scratch... or is all of that info lost

also

when setting up shared project folders... in the webmail client i can set shared folders & sub-folders... however.. in outlook 2011 they don't appear to show as folder>sub-folder... but all on the same level.. is there something i am missing

thanks

anyone have an answer on this?

i migrated my server from 6.7 on an old g5 (osx 10.4) to a new macPro running kerio 7.4.3 on osx 10.6.8

i will also be migrating everyone from IMAP to exchange accounts

HOWEVER... i have tested setting up a couple of accounts... and none of my projects/categories transferred

is there no way around this?

if i set them all up again will they transfer when i upgrade to v8

is there anyway of having the categories server wide... ie. all users have access to the same categories

thanks in advance for any insight
