Apologies for the rookie question, but I want to implement IM via Kerio and I can't quite figure out what to do. I did look at the help topics, but I'm still a bit confused.
I only want IM within our domain so it sounds like I don't need to add a server SRV record or do I?
Also, in the example provided in the help topic I understand that the feelmorelaw would be changed to our domain, but I'm not sure what the connect.feelmorelaw.com would get changed to for the IM server. It says Kerio Connect, but is that what I change it to?

again, sorry for these lame questions.

any help setting this up would be greatly appreciated.

thank you!
Justin

Basically you just add the client srv to your dns server.

Let's say you own the domain "AwesomeDomain.com" and Kerio is installed on a Server with a DNS Name of "mail.AwesomeDomain.com".

Then it should look like this:

_xmpp-client._tcp.AwesomeDomain.com. 18000 IN SRV 0 5 5222
mail.awesomedomain.com.

Just take a look at you adminhandbook (Kerio Connect > Download > Manual)

The following items can be changed:
feelmorelaw.com -- domain
connect.feelmorelaw.com -- instant messaging server (Kerio Connect)
18000 -- TTL
0 -- record priority
5 -- record weight
5222 -- port of the service

I added just the client SRV record with our DNS provider (Network Solutions), see below

_xmpp-client._tcp.ourdomain.com. 18000 IN SRV 0 5 5222 mail.ourdomain.com.

Then, I configured iChat per the instructions but I get an error message saying that iChat can't communicate with the Jabber account "myname<_at_>ourdomain.com", could not connect to host mail.ourdomain.com

any ideas?
