One of our customers want to move away from CGP (email only) and TeamAgenda, so we are evaluating Kerio and other solutions (mainly Oracle Collaboration Suite).

What they have :

- network of ~50 Mac (with OS X 10.3) and ~15 Windows XP machines
- Office 2004 on the Mac, Office 2003
- TeamAgenda 4.5 and CGP 4.1
- one Palm Treo 650, 10 Treo 600, two on those Palms are on Windows machines, the others are on Mac

What they need :

- unified contact liste (right now, they have contacts in Entourage/Outlook and in TeamAgenda)
- be able to share contacts
- be able to delegate and share calendars
- be able to at least display emails, calendars and contacts in a Web portal (NOT WebMail)
- unified clien for email, calendar and contact
- public calendars and contacts
- about 10 users need to be able to work offline

So far, those are the problem that we found with Kerio (and Entourage) :

- we will have to create two Outlook profiles on the two Windows machines that need to sync with their Treo and be able to work offline, one profile for KOC and the other for KOS

- a lot of features are still missing in Entourage 2004 (I know, it's not a Kerio problem) : you can't edit sharing privileges for calendars in Entourage (you have to edit them in WebMail) and tasks are store locally, they are not stored on the server, and you can't access tasks created in WebMail in Entourage

- when exporting in iCalendar (server/ical), the tasks are not exported

- no API to access the data to build a portal. We can access mail by IMAP and the calendar by iCal, but since the tasks are not exported in iCal, we can't access the tasks. This is something that CGP is doing great

Did I miss something else ?
