For Mac users, today is the day. The highly anticipated Mac OS X 10.7 Lion just hit the market and we're sure that many of our Mac-focused customers are excited to deploy it. In fact, we are excited as well.

With Apple Mail boasting attractive new features in Mac OS X Lion, you might be wondering when Kerio Connect will support everything the new OS has to offer. This is a question customers have been asking ever since Steve Jobs announced Lion was on its way. The answer is: we will fully support the new Mac OS X Lion in our next release of Kerio Connect.

Kerio Connect 7.2.2 will be available in just a couple of days. As always, there's good news for end users as well as administrators. For end users, we will provide complete support for Mail, iCal, and Address Book. We're also taking the opportunity to add support for Safari 5.1. Administrators will be glad to hear that Kerio Connect 7.2.2 will run without a hitch on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Workstation as well as Server editions.

Our development team has had its hands on the Golden Master of Lion for several weeks and it's fully tested now. We don’t anticipate there to be any compatibility issues with the final Lion release that will cause a delay. However email, calendaring and contacts are all business critical applications, so it is Kerio’s policy to run rigorous QA tests of its products to ensure they are as reliable as possible when they are released. The final round of compatibility testing is in progress already.

When Kerio Connect 7.2.2 becomes available, we'll update this blog post with tips and best practices for a smooth transition to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
We're all very anxious to take advantage of the new features in Mac OS X Lion, but we ask for your patience while we verify compatibility. The next simple, stable, and secure version of Kerio Connect is coming soon.

Outlook 2011 for MAC is Arriving on R1Sync servers Wednesday May 25 2011

Posted by Troy in Windows Mobile , Windows , Webmail , sync , Spam filtering , R1sync , Palm , Nokia , Mobile Device , Microsoft Outlook , Microsoft Exchange Alternative , Mail Server , Mac , Kerio , Iphone , Ical , I-Phone , Hosted , GROUPWARE , Entourage , Datebook , BlackBerry , Apple Mail , Apple Calinder , Anti Virus , Anti Spam

Today May 24th Kerio Technology release the awaited version 7.2 of Kerio Connect mail server, this update now supports Outlook 2011 for MAC. We have tested the update all day in our private cloud and are ready to start updating our entire Kerio Cloud to the new version on May 25 at 11:59pm.

Here it the info from Kerio blog:

Kerio Connect 7.2 launches with native support for Outlook 2011 for Mac

It's been a long time coming – Kerio Connect 7.2 includes native support for Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac. Mail, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes as well as public folders, categories etc. are all synced with Kerio Connect.

We've spent tremendous amount of engineering time making sure that anybody using Outlook 2011 for Mac with Kerio Connect 7.2 has a good experience. Since configuring Outlook 2011 can be a daunting task for end-users, we've developed an auto-configuration tool (available through Kerio WebMail) which removes any complexity from the initial setup and saves a ton of IT support time.

There are a few limitations to our Outlook 2011 support – in some cases related to glitches in Microsoft Outlook, in other cases related to features that are not supported by Kerio Connect. You can find a complete list of these in the Kerio Knowledge Base at http://support.kerio.com/kb/623.

Now, what else is in Kerio Connect 7.2?

"Exceptions from recurring events" has been the recurring nightmare for many of our large customers. Rapidly growing use of calendar applications for organizing one's personal time, scheduling regular meetings with colleagues, or booking resources has increased the requirements our customers have for their calendaring needs. In 7.2, we're introducing support for exceptions from recurrent events which are synchronized across all calendaring apps supported for use with Kerio Connect.

Windows Phone 7, Motorola Droid and other smartphones will now work with Kerio Connect. We've been early proponents of mobility, push email and wireless synchronization (either through Exchange ActiveSync or through open-standards protocols like CalDAV and CardDAV), so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see us push aggressively in this area. Here's the list of new devices and systems that sync with Kerio Connect:

  • Windows Phone 7
  • iPhone and iPad running iOS 4.3
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo) for all currently supported Android devices
  • Motorola Droid 2 and Droid X
  • Moxier Mail for Android
  • Motorola Motoblur

The complete list of supported smartphones is now quite long, so take a look at the matrix of supported Exchange ActiveSync-compatible phones at http://www.kerio.com/connect/wireless/activesync or explore our entire mobile email offering at http://www.kerio.com/connect/wireless which also includes BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

If you ever needed to append a disclaimer to every email leaving your messaging server, you will like the new HTML footers. Pictures, colors, fonts – they can be used to craft any kind of disclaimer you fancy for your outgoing email.

As always, there's more for everyone:

  • Special Admin Account for access to Kerio Connect Administration
  • New, faster Kerio Outlook Connector with reduced memory footprint
  • Password Change Prevention gives admins the power to ensure password complexity by preventing password changes by end-users
  • Archive Compression can be custom-scheduled by the administrator
  • Deleting users automatically removes their memberships in groups, mailing lists and aliases
  • New, faster Kerio BlackBerry Connector uses less memory and database resources
  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 4-6 and openSUSE 11-11.3 are now certified host OS for Kerio Connect

GAL, Improved Antispam for Kerio MailServer

Posted by Troy in Windows Mobile , Windows , Webmail , sync , R1sync , Mobile Device , Microsoft Exchange Alternative , Mail Server , Kerio , Hosted , GROUPWARE , Anti Virus , Anti Spam

… written by B. K. Winstead from Industry Bytes

Kerio Technologies this week announced Kerio MailServer 6.7, the latest update to its Exchange Server alternative targeted specifically at small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs). This time around, the company has added a Global Address List (GAL), improved the antispam filtering capability, and added new features for Entourage and Mac OS X users. In addition, Kerio has also introduced the Kerio IMAP Migration Tool.

"Our experience has been that if you have 40 to 50 employees plus, then it makes perfect sense to maintain that information in a single place such as Active Directory," said Dusan Vitek, vice president of worldwide marketing for Kerio. "We're seeing that it's very common for larger SMBs to utilize Microsoft Active Directory. Because we support Active Directory natively—our Kerio MailServer syncs with Active Directory, or authenticates against Active Directory—you don't need to duplicate records across different systems."

Users of Microsoft Exchange Server with Outlook of course will be familiar with the concept of the GAL and the benefits such a feature brings. But the Kerio GAL doesn't necessarily require Active Directory; as a cross-platform mail server, it also integrates with Apple Open Directory or Kerio's built-in user directory. Changes or additions to the underlying directory are dynamically synchronized to the GAL.

 

Stepping it up on the security front, Kerio MailServer 6.7 features an improved antispam gateway that can take advantage of multi-CPU server systems and gains speed from parallel processing of email messages. The implementation of the Bayesian heuristics has been beefed up as well.

For Mac users of Kerio MailServer, the latest versions brings an autoconfigure tool for Entourage. It also fixes a problem with iCal to prevent sharing details from private calendar events. And you can now sync Address Book on Macs with Kerio MailServer. Furthering its cross-platform applicability, Kerio MailServer 6.7 adds support for Debian 5 and Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Linux.

Last fall, Kerio introduced the Kerio Exchange Migration Tool. This time around, it's the Kerio IMAP Migration Tool, once again making it easier to change your mail system to Kerio's. This new tool can be used on Windows, Mac, or Linux systems to transfer domains, accounts, folders, and email messages from any local or hosted IMAP server to Kerio MailServer

 

In addition to its cross-platform support, Kerio MailServer is also available as a virtual appliance using either VMware or Parallels. As Vitek said, "Our small customers typically don't do this, but it seems a fairly common practice for larger SMBs to adopt virtualization and run Kerio MailServer in a virtual environment."

You can find pricing and additional information on R1sycs's website.
