Ok, so it seems most issues people see with Kerio is in the Outlook connector (MAPI). Seems the people who are running IMAP are doing great. What advantage is there to MAPI over IMAP? I am thinking about dropping the outlook connector and going completely IMAP. Will I lose anything? Am I offbase to think IMAP is working better? Thanks!

That's like comparing Apples to Oranges. MAPI is a full groupware protocol, where is IMAP is only a Mail protocol.

So if you need Calendaring, Contact functionality, Tasks, server side mail filters, etc, then you need to use MAPI.

If you just need mail functionality, IMAP is a possible route.

Would it be possible to somehow run MAPI to get the group functionality and IMAP to get the email. Obviously I could run an IMAP and a MAPI connection in outlook at the same time but, I guess you would need to somehow separate the email from the groupware functions in MAPI. Othwise I will have two listings of my inbox

I would mention the Kerio Synchronization Plugin here, but to be perfectly honest I would not recommend it right now. First it has some issues which we are currently working on resolving. The other thing to note is that KSP only supports syncing of 4 specific folders, the user's personal Contacts and Caledar folder, and the Public Contacts and Calendar folder. It does not support server side mail filters, it does not support Tasks or Notes, and it only supports syncing of those 4 specific folders.
