Anyone know how to rename a domain? I need to switch from .com to .net of the same domain, but I cannot see how to rename it without deleting all our setup and recreating it.

There are many other ways I can think of to do this, but I don't know how you're setup. Are you on Windows? UNIX? Using Active Directory? Open Directory? Kerio user accounts?

Kerio MailServer 6.7.1 w/AD
Windows Server 2003 SP 1
Dell PowerEdge 2850 (Dual Xeon 3.2ghz and 2 GB RAM)
~1300 users
~1000+ concurrent IMAPS connections
iPhone users
Outlook 2007 KOFF users
Apple iCal 10.5/10.6 users

This worked for me running Kerio 6.02 on Windows 2003:

1) Create the new domain name using the Kerio Admin Console.

2) Stop Mailserver

3) Browse the server and rename the domain folder to the new domain

4) Edit the users.cfg file using a text editor and change every appearance of the old domain to the new domain.

5) Resart Mailserver

Once I verified that everything was working I did the following two things:

1) Used the Admin Console to add a domain alias to the new domain so any mail sent to the old doamin would still be delivered to the user.

2) Edited each of the public address books changing any references of the old domain name to the new domain name.

You may also want to consider renaming their mail directories, and perhaps the log directories under the Kerio program directory, as well.

With the new versions of Kerio is this still a valid way to do it? Thanks
