For about 7 years we have been using Kerio without AD. Our users are very accustomed to their account names and email address the way they are. Currently we do not enforce any naming convention for our users and it has worked out just fine.

The problem becomes now how to deal with this tying into AD.

Our AD account names are the users full first name and full last name, and thats a naming convention we want to keep.

So whats the best way to map this with Kerio? Is it possible to create a custom attribute in AD and map that custom attribute to kerio for the username? Or is it best practice to make their current email address an alias to their new login name?

The only problem with the latter is everyones Outlook would have to be reconfigured to use the new login name...
