Good morning gang,

We currently run KC 8.x being a spam firewall. We we receive email from the outside world, it goes to our spam firewall which then forwards email to Kerio. Works beautifully.

We now have the need/requirement to let employees check email from their smartphones while they are out of the office. Since our external mx record points to our spam gateway and not our email server, I'm not sure how to set this up.

Have any of you run into this scenario?

Hello nixIT,

You can setup a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) that resolves to the WAN IP of your server, and use that as the server address in your smartphone setup.

Just make sure that you have all the necessary ports open on your firewall, and a valid SSL certificate.

This KnowledgeBase article should also help:

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Neil.

@Neil,

Thanx for the quick response. I will review the KB article you sent along to see if it will work.

Will this work if our email server is prohibited from having direct connection to the outside work, due to client and corporate security restrictions.

That would make it trickier - you could look at using VPN connections on the smartphones, and then connect to the server through its internal IP address.

That's the current path I'm investigating. Thanx.
