Sorry for the hyperbole in the title, but it isn't too far from the truth.

We really want to use Kerio's mail client and this one missing feature makes using it in our environment (and I have to assume many others) just too risky. When you receive an email composed in html, the Kerio mail client does not let you hover preview links. This means it is impossible for a typical user to tell if a link is a phishing link or a legit link because they can't hover it and check the destination.

Here is an example of what I am talking about:


As you can see, if you hover a link in IE, you can get a preview. Same with Chrome and Firefox. However, with the Kerio Mail client, you don't get that preview.

It is worth noting that in the Kerio mail client, normal links do let you get a preview, but if the link is in an html composed email, then you can't tell if the link is legit.

While my example shows pictures in the html email, this is a problem even if you don't allow it to load pictures.

I think the Kerio mail client is wonderful except for this one very critical missing feature. Like many businesses, we are stuck with IE as our default browser, and Kerio has a bug in IE that hasn't been fixed over the past two releases (Ticket ID: DLH-683238 Department: Support - Bug Reports) and so far their advice has been to use Chrome instead of IE. As we can't do that, I saw the dedicated Kerio mail client as our salvation as it works really well and since Kerio controls both the client and server development, it 'should' get the best support. Please add the link preview feature to your mail client and you will make at least one organization very happy.

Thank you Kerio team. I look forward to any updates that add this feature.
