Hello,

I am brand new to Kerio and was looking for any information on how to answer the following question posed to me from our CEO:

"Is it possible to set up my account so that NO ONE can read my inbound/outbound e-mails including the Enterprise (Network) Admin AND the Kerio Administrator?"

Thank you very much!
-B

Nope. Mail is always readable by:
- The mail admin: (s)he could change the password of the user and thus login to the account
- The windows/linux/mac server admin: (s)he could just browse to the mail store directory where all mail is stored as seperate *.eml files and read the mail there
- The network admin: (s)he could sniff the network and thus read the messages
Etc. etc. etc.

The only way to avoid this is to use mail encryption in Outlook together with some scheme so your boss is the only one who knows the private encryption key. Pretty hard to guarantee such privacy I'm afraid.

Netherlands, eh?

I lived in Kerkrade for several months!

I played football with Roda J.C. in 1995...

Thanks again!
