I run both a webserver (Apache) and the mail server together so I need to put the mailserver on a different HTTP port so it won't conflict. Therefore, in order to access the mail you need you need to include the port eg: http://my.domain.com:1234

Is there a way to make BOTH webserver and maolserver work together on different ports without having to enter the port number in the URL? I'm running windows server 2003 and turned off IIs. I'm not great with DNS but pointing me in the right direction usually helps!

You can run a mailserver with http/https and a webserver like apache on the same box without changing any ports. You need 2 different IP's and bind each service to the appropriate IP address.

Works great on OS X and linux. Not sure if windows is up to the task.

Talk to your ISP and tell them they are the best host in the world. Then ask for another IP.

If your on a dynamic block then you may have problems hosting a mailserver.

We have a similar setup. Windows 2003 running Apache and KMS. It works fine, but you need multiple IP addresses so you can bind each server to a different IP.

That'll cause problems with Apache too.

This is not difficult.

In Kerio Admin, goto Services, then double click on HTTP. Double click on All Addresses. Change this port to the port you want for http:// and click OK twice. Do the same thing for Secure HTTP, just make sure to use two different ports that are not already occupied by other services.

Hope this helps.

God, you're on a Windows 2003 box and you turned IIS6 off and used Apache? Turn IIS back on ;)

We're in a similar situation. What we ended up doing was creating a "mail.mydomain.com" virtual host with the index.html file being composed of:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="10; URL=http://mail.mydomain.com:1234/">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
Click here blah blah if not redirected.
</BODY>
</HTML>

You could put this index.html file on any webserver anywhere, in any directory, and users can use it to access webmail easily without remembering any numbers.


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

You can do that with Apache as well. It's a fairly simple matter.

I don't trust IIS. Too many problems, too many patches, too deeply dug into the operating system, the GUI makes it really easy to configure so people who don't know what they're doing get in a configure it all wrong all too often, and the security model is hooked right into the OS which I hate. I'm really not a fan of MS web related technologies... which includes Exchange.

My apache config file has the following to do what you want:

<VirtualHost x.x.x.x>
ServerName mail.domain.com
Redirect permanent / http://domain.com:1234
</VirtualHost>
