Other than the server telling me that an upgrade is available, exactly what does the upgrade functionality do?? I click it and it downloads a package somewhere (running on OS X) and then expects me to magically know where the package went so that I can install it manually. Why doesn't the admin console offer to install it after downloading?

Of note: I just signed up for the email to tell me when upgrades are available. At the bottom of the confirmation email it says, "This mail system is powered by Kerio MailServer 6.0.3." Apparently Kerio has problems figuring out how to upgrade, as well.

After the update finishes downloading, it let you know where the update is located. And if I am not in error, I think it also tells you how to instrall the update.

Not sure which OS you're on, but not on OS X; At least not as far as any screen indicators I can see.

It's actually logged in the warning log once you've downloaded it(I think it should be in the config log myself.....). Here is an excerpt from my last upgrade:

New version was downloaded from Kerio website. For upgrade to the newest version run setup file C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/tmp/KMS-6-0-4-T-0-0.exe

I guess it can't be launched from within the Admin GUI, since that too needs to be upgraded when you run the setup file, but I agree, it could be a bit more descriptive from the console once you've downloaded it.

That's correct. It can't be launched from Administration Console. The upgrade needs an interaction from the user so it have to be launched locally on the desktop. The new file (in store/tmp) is downloaded through secured channel directly from our server thus there is guaranteed an authenticity of that file.

Why make us look in the log? Why not display a msg in the download window telling us where it is?
