Hi

I just setup beta2 of Windows Vista and tried to access my KMS Webmail. The login page looks a bit strange as user name and password input boxes stick out of the frame, but that is just cosmetic.

A bigger problem is that I can't login, I always get the prompt that my password is wrong.

I am using 6.1.0 on Win2003 SP1, though (don't want to upgrade at the moment).

Has anyone already tested this?

Regards, Pascal

MS IE 7+ works ok with KMS 6.1.3 and higher.
Tested 6.1.3, 6.1.4 and 6.2.0.

OK, thanks. Maybe a reason to upgrade to 6.2 early next year...

Actually IE 7(+) works with WebMail, but with limitations. It is not yet officially supported browser. There are design glitches and some things may not work at all.

Yes, I think, MS has to ajust as well, I guess more than KMS.

It is beta, so still buggy.

Only glitch I've seen in the month view on calendar is expanded to very large making it a bit difficult to use. Not too bad for a beta browser. I do hope things are fixed soon because I've got a few users that have fallen in love with tabs... Keep up the great work Kerio!

Perhaps get them to Firefox? Or one of the IE shells that features tabs? There are lots of good options besides IE7 until IE7 one is mature.

Firefox... Tried it, didn't work. My office uses a number of B2B web portals for various functions. While technically it did work, some sites displayed various problems that made using Firefox much harder, even one impossible. I.E. 7 so far has worked very well with these sites. Interestingly, I'm using Firefox here now on the Kerio forums because the forums here don't work with I.E. 7.

Anyway, the way I see it most web sites that don't work with I.E. 7 should. Because the biggest change to I.E. 7 is security and privacy. Parts of the site that don't work should for the purpose of security if nothing else. Like here in the Kerio forums, the cookies don't process correctly. I have no problems with cookies in most other web sites, but the Kerio forums don't use them correctly (or arguably: nicely) so I.E. 7 won't work here. Firefox is a very good browser, and I peronsally love the extentions I can get, including the I.E. tab stuff. But, it's just like the old I.E. in that it can be very unsecure and quite buggy, especially if used outside it's normal operating modes by inserting the I.E. tab extention and other extentions.

Also, technically I.E. 7 is beta, but a PUBLIC beta. Which has two very important meanings. 1. It's fully feature complete which means that all the functionality won't change once it's released and developers should be hot on working with it. Which I'm confident Kerio is. 2. It's already in the wild and a large number of the public are currently using it and more will join them very soon. Most developers worth their pay will have already had I.E. 7 installed on a test machine and been working with it before the public beta. Microsoft has been talking about I.E. 7 for 6 months publicly and 18 months to the developers. It's in Kerio's best interest to get 100% functional with I.E. 7 as soon as possible. My tests so far with Kerio 6.1.4 have been very positive, and I can use I.E. 7 with the web mail easily. So if there is any thing to fix, im guessing it is minor.

These days the only developer that can, in reality, get away with saying that support for a product will be done when it's done is game developers. Application developers unfortunately have to feel the wrath of the general public, no matter what state the supporting system is in. Having worked in both types of developement houses, I will keep my push of Kerio on I.E. 7 to a minimum. But, I will still push.

Yes, IE7 runs on our testing machine for months already :-) We are currently preparing full support. Our aim is to have it before Microsoft ships final version. Currently IE7 has less than 1% browser share (http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?qprid=6), so hopefully not many our users are affected. But of course the share will rise quickly.

Full support for IE7 is included in KMS 6.3.0 beta 2, released today: http://forums.kerio.com/index.php?t=rview&goto=38839

If you'll find any problem, we'd like to hear from you :-)
