I've just taken over the management of a Kerio Connect Server (Version 7.3) running on OS X 10.4. It's got 10 mailboxes ranging in size from 500MB to 29GB. Before the migration I am going have each user reduce the mailbox to a maximum of 10GB

The plan is integrate it into our Kerio Connect Server (version 8.5) which currently has 37 users on it. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on the best way to do it.

I assume based on reading the KB's that using the internal Kerio backup from 7.3 won't restore into 8.5 but if I'm wrong please tell me.

My thoughts so far are:
1) The Kerio Migration Tool
2) Clone the server, upgrade the OS and Kerio until I am at a version that can restored via backup into our existing installation

I appreciate any feedback that might help

You should be able to simply copy over each users folder. Kerio Connect does some sanity checking on access, so any missing or incompatible files will be added or rebuilt.
So let's say you want to move the user Joe from server A to server B.
1. Find Joe's folder on server A (e.g., /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/abc.com/joe)
2. Copy his folder to server B (e.g., /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/def.com/joe)
3. Add Joe to server B.
4. Log in to Joe's account and make sure it works. It might take a few minutes to do any necessary repairs or updates to the mailbox.
