I have been testing the two account types Exchange and Exchange IMAP in Mail on Mac's running 10.7 and 10.8 and get mixed results on what i get access to on the server and performance.

I have my email account setup as Exchange IMAP and it runs very very slowly, which wouldn't be too bad if i didn't have a 2.5GHz i7 MBP with 8GB RAM. In addition to this is have to set up additional links to my address book and calendar using LDAP, calDAV and cardDAV so that the mail app looks up email addresses automatically, its a terrible configuration

In short what I need to work out is what account types to use to get the most out of the kerio server:
I need to sync with mail on the server so it can access all email from desktop and mobile devices.
I need to sync calendar and address books so all entries are accessible on desktop and mobile devices
I need mail to look up the global address book.

There must be a simple way to achieve maximum functionality i just haven't worked it out yet Confused

Hello,

At the moment an 'Exchange' account from a Mac to Kerio Connect is currently not supported (I have amended this sentence due to a typo). The recommended settings are to use IMAP Exchange/CalDAV/CardDAV for Apple Mail, iCal and Address Book.

If you suffer from performance issues in Apple Mail then you may benefit from contacting technical support so that the problem can be debugged. I have found that the most common reason for slow performance is that the mailbox being accessed is too large (especially the Inbox).

I hope this helps,
Vicky

Hi Vicky, Thanks for your response its good to hear i have configured it right.

You hit the nail on the head with the size of the inbox as i have every email send and received since 15/1/07 Surprised

I do have support contract with with Kerio but need to save my "support tickets" for when i really have server issues.

how would i access the global address book using CardDAV and not LDAP?

Hi,

As far as I know there is not a way to do this as Apple Mail does not give you the functionality yo use CardDAV. The only option is to configure LDAP as that is the only setting for addressing in the settings. This may be something worth google-ing as I would image someone may have found a way to do this.

All the best,
Vicky
