I've installed 6.0.3 in demo mode and have a couple of specific concerns,and one more general one.

How do I disable Kerios webserver and run the webmail component under apache? It's not realistic for me to forego the use of apache on this server.

Short of tying kerio to a directory of some sort, is there a non-gui way of administering the server? I'm a unix person and would rather not lock myself into the use of a gui if possible.

Are there any facilities available to migrate user data from an existing imap server to kerio?

And the other big general question..... is kerio a good product? I seem to see a lot of warnings and bug reports about 6.0.3 in this forum and frankly that doesnt make me want to purchase the product. Nevermind how commonly i see people saying that support is awful. I refuse to deploy microsoft as a server OS so exchange is out. and groupwise/notes is just a lot more than i really need. I've kicked around the idea of using SUSE OpenExchange but find it to be rather "unpolished" in terms of interface.

So I'm stuck in an awkward middleground and Kerio seems to be an okay fit barring the above mentioned concerns.

Any input is appreciated.

Some very short answers to your questions:
1. You can't
2. No.
3. Not really. You can only do it on a per account basis by replicating the other IMAP directories in KMS and copying messages over by drag n drop or copy.
4. Despite some mishaps in 6.0.3, KMS is still a great product IMHO.

I'm a linux/unix person and I think KMS is a great product! I don't think support is aweful at all, quite the contrary. I have to deal with support from many companies and Kerio is right up there at the top in support for me.

disagree with your answers for one and two.

1. there are options for this including reverse proxing, multiple ips, rewriting, and aliasing. However the hosts KMS servers may need to continue to run.

2. you can manage it from the console by hand editing of the XML based config files and then reloading (restarting the service) the configuration

got to agree that it is a good product, just suffering from growing pains both in development and support

desquin,

1.Yes, it can run under a webserver, but not with HTTP services disabled in KMS.
2. Yes, I supposes you could if you start and stop the mailserver process. Didn't really give it much thought.

I did say they were quick answers!

the other thing I should have dropped in for point 1 is that you can use squirrelmail without using the kerio web services.

There are many webmail packages that would work without web services in KMS being enabled. None are as polished as KMS webmail, although similar speed to the 5.7x version would be nice. One of the features that attracted us to KMS was the webmail under 5.7

Can someone point me to a howto or faq regarding the apache configuration. if kms is going to be doable for me apache must be operating normally on this machine along with kms.

the polished webmail interface is one of the biggest attractions to kms. i've used squirrelmail for years and can even lay claim to a couple minor code features now included in the codebase. It's just something I want my users to have to work with day in and day out.

i'm also about to install an evaluation of communigate pro. anyone have any opinions of cgpro versus kms?
