I am considering moving our agency off SBS and I am curious if Kerio will meet our needs so I have a question or two. Thanks in advance for taking the time.

Does Kerio connect have folder based retention policy capability? For example, I want my users to only have a 90 day Inbox and 2 year folder for archiving messages after which they will be deleted.

For those who have migrated from Exchange 2003 or higher: How did the migration go for you? How would you compare Exchange vs Kerio?

You can find the settings for automated items clean-out in the admin guide here: http://manuals.kerio.com/connect/adminguide/en/sect-domautod elete.html

In short, yes you can as long as you don't want to use any custom folders. Set inbox to 90 days, and all other folders to 2 years.

If you want to create a special 'saved' folder, with a retention policy of some arbitrary time, then no Kerio doesn't seem to support that (at least not as far as I've found).

Some email clients (I've used it on Thunderbird and Outlook) do give you that kind of granular option for individual random folders, but that's a client-side option and doesn't work for web-mail users.

Mid 2015: Quit Kerio and moved to Exchange 2013 and Meraki.
Kerio Control 8.4.0--Used since it was WinRoute, many years ago
Kerio Connect 8.4.0 on Ubuntu. Bought Connect just in time for the switch to NO SUPPORT(aka pay for support). Not. Happy.
