We are currently running Kerio Mailserver 6.0.3. Our main use for it is webmail. We started with version 5.7.7. Everything was good until we went to the 6 series. At this time we have had enough and are going back to 5.7.10. Here is what I have done and my question is has anyone else done this and are there any issues that have shown up?

We have this running on a Fedora Core 2 server.

-I backed up the /opt/kerio directory and all its contents.
-I uninstalled Kerio Mailserver 6.0.3.
-I installed Kerio Mailserver 5.7.10.
-I created the users that we had.
-I logged in as each user to create the folder in the store directory.
-I then took, one by one, each of the original user directories from Kerio 6.0.3 and tared them. I moved all the tar files to the store directory in the 5.7.10 install directory. I renamed the user directories and then untared the tar files. At that point I had all the users directories back with their email that they were looking at from the point I stoped the mailserver and tared their folders. I know there are a few extra files and folders in there that are not used by Kerio 5.7.10 but so far I have not noticed any problems (but I have not used it long).

Anyone else out there do this? Was it successful? Please let me know if there are any issues with this.

The steps seems complicated. I believe you'd only need to perform the following:

rpm -Uvh kerio-version.rpm

To be safe just backup
1) mailserver.cfg
2) users.cfg
3) kerio/mailserver/store
