Perhaps this has already been suggested or is already being worked on, but I'd like to propose a new feature:

A palm conduit that syncs directly with the Kerio server and by-passes Outlook. The Web Mail has come a long way and for us is very usable. The primary reason we use Outloook anymore is so that we can synchronize our Palms.

If a conduit existed that allowed for a direct synchronization with the server, it would accomplish a number of things:

1. Remove dependency on outlook.
2. Perhaps speed the synchronization process as you could optimize it for Kerio.
3. Add new features not supported in Outlook as they become available in Kerio.
4. Synchronization could be performed remotely with PDA Phones or other wireless PDA devices. This is huge too. I suspect this would have to be a palm application that works outside of the hotsync, but I suspect there would be some code reuse.

Anyone else like this idea? Is something already in the works?
If kerio is not working on it, I'd love to write one, but would need information on the Kerio API.

This would be a bonus for me, I'm moving all my users over to webmail and this is a sticking point.

Same here. I only use KOC on some PC's for Palm Treo 650 synchronisation. Would be terrific if the device could sync with the server directly. Devices with GPRS connectivity could then sync all over the world. My boss would really REALLY love it (he nags me about Blackberries almost weekly).

Allthough to me it seems to be quite complicated to implement and maintain. Palms change. And what about Windows Mobile?

Yeah, not sure what would be involved, but I think it would be worth doing. If Kerio didn't want to do it, I would love to try, but would need some sort of documentation on the api/protocol/etc.

Did some sniffing and apparently most everything is done via the IMAPv4 connection and it appears all the messages are standard VCards.

I've since purchased a Treo 700w, so I'm going to focus on a program to synchronize directly with the Kerio server from a Windows Mobile device instead of a Palm conduit. I think Palm might be moving away from Hotsync and towards something more along the lines of ActiveSync anyhow.

Unless, of course, Kerio is already working on something like this :) ...

Yes it would also be great for those of us Mac users who are using Entourage primarily to sync with a Palm device.

Hear, Hear.

I'm testing the server now (haven't purchased), and no Palm conduit is the sticking point.

Any news would be welcome.

Hi there, I read your post that you're using the Treo 700w. Do you mind if I ask you how is it wroking out with the Kerio mail server?

Are you able to get/sync all email and calendar information over the air, or must you physcially sync the Treo700 via a cable?
