1) Seems like BB Connector 8 will still work, however blackberry support has been discontinued. Have a read http:// download.kerio.com/dwn/connect/connect-8.1.0-1314/kerio-conn ect-notes-en-8.1.0-1314.pdf

2)People have asked for this feature, so it might be in the suggestions section still. Currently, it's not possible with the latest release. Not that I am aware of, anyway.

Thank you for your replies!

1)So BB connector can do my job but if something does not work i will not have support?

2)Do you have any estimation of 8.2 release? Can i install beta on client till final release?

Hi There!

I would never run a beta version on a live/production environment as there are usually some issues with beta software. You can run as a test system though and be part of the beta program and feed back any issues you might find though!

As to the Blackberry side, I am sorry but its now no longer supported with Kerio. If a problem were to occur with the connector, we would not be able to correct it.

I hope this helps.

I don't want to sound overly negative, because I do like Kerio Connect and switched from Exchange... but... Unless you want a world of trouble, don't even consider a BES server with Kerio, whether its supported or not. I had 80 Blackberry users. The Kerio Blackberry connector would alway hard fail and corrupt its database. I was never able to get past about 25 Blackberry users before the database for BES would corrupt and sync would stop. I spent months trying to sort it out with Kerio. Worst couple months of my life. No... I'm not kidding.
Needless to say, I have no Blackberry users anymore, no BES server and I can sleep at night. Kerio Connect is a good mail server but their functionality with BES was terrible and just a nightmare to keep running. If you have to stay with Blackberry, I personally would stay with Exchange. Then again, I'm not so sure about Blackberry staying around, so you might want to be shifting users to a different platform anyway.
Hope this helps.
