Hi all,

I use a hosted Exchange 2013 setup for just a handful of accounts. Been very happy with the provider, but Exchange occasionally decides to play rough with OS X, and I've long fancied going with hosted KC instead. I don't use webmail.

So, daft question: in a single user environment, OS X and iOS only, would the user notice any difference between KC and Exchange?

Cheers

Tobes

Hi Tobes,

Little bit of a tough question... Kerio Connect is not a direct copy of Exchange so there are differences however depending on if the user used any Exchange specific features that only can be done with Outlook and Exchange then they may notice a difference.

However if the user is just a regular user and just sends emails and calendar invites then they probably won't notice anything different really.

If you wanted a comprehensive list of the differences between Kerio and Exchange call your closest Kerio office and speak to Sales or a Sales Engineer.

This way you can then determine if you feel the user would notice a difference.

I hope this helps a little.

All the best,
Vicky

In some ways, KC might be better, since it supports iCal, CardDav, etc, which (I'm given to understand) is pretty well implemented in most iOS and OS/X mail clients. Definitely faster than OutLook, though that comparison is irrelevant in your environment.

I use it because my customer had Outlook 2003 and didn't want to upgrade to 2010 due to cost. Exchange 2013 won't work with 2003 and barely works with 2007. I also like the built in AV and spam.
