Hi there,

I am in search of new mail server software and Kerio came up as one of the preferred suggestions. I do contract IT work a small company of about 25-35 employees, they are currently running Qmail and using a combination of Outlook express, Outlook 2000 and 2003. We were hoping to switch all the client machines to use the webbased interface for Kerio as a cheaper alternative to upgrading all clients to the latest version of Office which would in clude outlook.

The only problem/question we have would be that alot of the client machines have their own Personal Folders setup which are NOT tied into the mail server at all. Would there be anyway of transferring their Outlook Personal Folders with all their current e-mail to the Kerio mail server so that they would be viewable from the webbased Kerio client?

Thank you,

Erwan

This should be no problem, you will just need to gather all those PST's and then logon with Outlook via KOC to each account and import (copy/paste) the PST into the the KOC store and magically it will all be available in the webmail.

Don't do that. You'll lose all your header information. See the KB. There's one detailing how to import from a PST.

Thank you for the replies all!

When searching the KB the only relevant information came from that exact link provided above where it does mention that you might lose the header info.

sedell, do you have any other ideas?

The possibility of losing the header info isn't a bid deal, just curious as to other possibilities.

Thanks again!

Try using IMAP to import the mail. I found straight up IMAP to be quicker doing imports, and if I remember right, using IMAP preserved the headers. I'd have to test it again to be sure as it's been a while. I'm not sure I have any PSTs with intact headers to test with though. I found out the hard way prior to the KB article that headers get lost. You'll still need to use the KOC to import any non-mail items.

I've used Transend Migrator (http://www.transend.com/) for mail migration. (I migrated from Pegasus Mail to KMS, but a lot of other sources are also supported.)

Not free, but it worked nicely. (Would cost about $900,- for 35 users these days, was cheaper when I used it :-) They offer trials and their support is good.
