OK, newb here with many years managing Exchange 2003. Looking into Connect as an alternative to Exchange 2010/13 migration.

So far I've successfully sent and received mail with Outlook 2010 and the KOC offline plugin.

Windows 2012 Essentials fully patched
Kerio Connect and KADE 8.1.2
Active directory domain: mydomain.local

Kerio Mail:
Primary domain configured: mydomain.net (Active directory mapping successful)
Additional domain: mydomain.com (Active directory mapping successful)

Two questions for now:

1. If I create a user in Windows ADU&C, in that environment, the account gets a Kerio Connect tab, with a checkbox for "Mail account enabled" and the button "Email addresses" reveals an address of joeuser<_at_>mydomain.local. Of course, I'm not using mydomain.local outside of AD, and I can't add the address for mydomain.net. If this was Exchange, I could put any address from any recipient domain on the ADU&C E-mail address tab, but with Kerio I'm restricted to the AD domain name, which is invalid for mail use. So what good does the E-mail address button serve (p.s. I'm not given the opportunity to not use a .local domain when installing Essentials 2012).

2. Now when the account I created in ADU&C appears in Kerio administration, the E-mail address listed there is joeuser@mydomain.net, as I'd expect. Then I get a separate entry for joeuser<_at_>mydomain.com under that domain. But aren't these two separate mailboxes for that AD user? Is there no way receive mail for multiple domains into a single mailbox as Exchange does so easily?

3. Finally (unrelated to the above), when trying to open another user's calendar from Outlook, I discovered that the other users in Kerio Connect were unknown to Outlook. There's nothing I can find that resembles a GAL, despite all users created thus far having check-marks to be included in the GAL. Did I miss a step somewhere? I wouldn't think that I should need to manually create a separate LDAP address book for the Kerio server to see the GAL - or am I mistaken?

Thanks, and BTW have searched and Googled and not come up with anything useful.
