We've been using Kerio Connect for a really long time and we're quite familiar with the changes and upgrades over the years, reasons behind them and appreciate the amount of work and quality that goes into Kerio products in general.

Recently our spam volumes have greatly increased mainly due to our users being what they're best at - non technical online victims.

We installed SpamTitan as our primary spam server and Kerio Connect relays outgoing emails through an internal IP. This leads to a bit of frustration as some users are seen as complete spammers by SpamTitan, but whitelisting helps.

The problem we're facing is that SpamTitan uses 'dynamic user authentication' to check whether a mailbox exists on Kerio (RCPT TO probe to the mail server). Unfortunately it fails on Mailing Lists (Groups) because Kerio does something weird - it uses Group Name as the primary address, but it responds only to the addresses defined in the 'Email Addresses' (or Moderators/Members) tab. And interestingly enough the primary email (Group Name or Mailing List Name) CANNOT be repeated in the 'Email Addresses'.

What's the best way of doing this? In general what's the best way of integrating SpamTitan if anyone has experience with it?

Thank you

Will SpamTitan work the way you'd like if you use Mailing Lists instead of Groups?

Mailing Lists and Groups in Kerio work pretty much the same - their name doesn't work for authentication.

There's a workaround - call them 'random45645' and add the desired email to the other tab. But this would lead to having a 'random45645' email on the system.
