  1. Public folder deduplication

    We use the following tools to deduplication public folders. It can heavly reduce the amount of mail on a server.

    https://github.com/quentinsf/IMAPdedup

    The option to run this from the admin console same as you can currently re-index pubic folders would be great. I've remove anywhere between a few gigabytes to a 100gb of mail from servers in the past using this tool.

  2. Connect + Control

    It would be nice if when targeted spam attack on the organization, the mail server Kerio Connect reported ip-address and a domain name server to Kerio Control that would, in turn, would create a temporary rule to block the sender hosts, those most unloaded the mail server of unnecessary traffic and inspections.
    Sorry for my English.

  3. Domain Quota Alert to Multiple Email Addresses

    The email alert that goes out if a domain is over quota should be able to go out to more than one email address. For example, a server admin and a primary user in the domain. Allowing it by using commas would be fine.

  4. Automaticly make changes to basic settings at certain date or time

    Many time changes need to done when administrator´s are not working like weekends. Nice to make example disable user account´s or disable domains or add new users when normally can´t do something yet. And also don´t have to remember them anynore if people will work only sample three weeks only.

  5. Solve POP3 Configuration Bug or Show Conflict at the dashboard

    If a user is deleted, the pop3 account, which has delivered mails to this account keeps being active and is not deleted or is been shown as "suggestion to delete".
    At least there should be a function on the dashboard or in the delivery options where orphaned accounts could be identified.

    Otherwise, mails could be downloaded from pop3 and are lost in nirvana!

  6. Signature improvement/automation

    We are also using o lot of our time for email signatures. This is no fun at all. Our suggestion is to automate the signature completly.

    Kerio normally has all infos it needs to create a signature.
    Name, email, Phone number etc.

    The only thing is to create a template to tell KC where to put which information

    example:
    king regards
    {surname} {givenname}
    {phonenumber}
    Logo (attacheable like in the footer right now)

    Then, in the mail client or webinterface you only need to put something like {keriosignature} as signature and you are done.

  7. Rename admin account

    We can set up an optional admin account… which name is "admin" and can't be changed. It could be considered as bad/annoying for two reasons :
    - Security : an account named "admin" would be the first name a hacked would try ;
    - Efficiency : I have one customer where there is an "admin" mail user, where people send administrative requests. So I can't enable the "admin" account and need to use a licence just to get an admin account on this machine. Doh !
    If we could choose the name of the admin account, it would resolve these…

  8. Easier reading of spam log (colour code Rejected versus Detected)

    When viewing the Spam logs in /admin/#spamLog, have each line colour coded to make it easier to see which emails got marked as Spam (but still submitted to the users mailbox), versus which ones got Rejected as Spam (and therefore never made it to the end user).

    I suggest text in Red for "Message rejected as spam" and text in orange (or just plain old black) for "Message detected as spam"

    It would probably be clearer to say "Message marked as spam" rather than "Message detected as spam", to make it clearer that this email was only marked, not blocked.

  9. Instant Messaging - control access from Administration Console

    Dear Connect Dev. Team,

    Use of IM can be a real time waster for some network accounts. The Administrative Console should allow who can access this module based on Usernames or Groups. We have a 911 Dispatch Center and a Maintenance Department and IT that want this however we have other departments such as Nursing Home and others that do not want there employees to access this. I think again that this is a setting that the Department Heads should choose and then provide the tools that would allow IT to turn it on or off based on user, group…

  10. Allow us root access to our Kerio Cloud servers

    Please allow root access to our Kerio Cloud servers. Doing this will allow us to perform advanced administration functions like updating the Linux OS on our VMs, and it would allow us to perform user name changes when someone gets married. Also, we sometimes need to alter configuration files. Rackspace and Amazon Web Services are able to allow this, so Kerio should also put in place the necessary infrastructure to allow it too. One of the drawbacks to Kerio Cloud is that we don't have root access for experienced Kerio admins, this is a necessary thing. It would also cut…

  12. vacation messages

    it would be great if Admins could set, reset and edit vacation messages from admin interface.

    Is ist possible to add a whitelist for vacation messages, and those messages are only send if @domain is on this list?
    So Spammers, not marked as spam get not validation.

  13. Extend Domain admin rights to allow management of Directory service accounts

    We host multiple dedicated servers for customers.
    Some are configured to use an external directory service such as Open Directory.

    We need to allow IT personnel at the customers' to manage user accounts in their mail domain, without giving them full admin rights to the entire Connect server.
    At the very least:
    -add/remove account from directory
    -edit (description etc)

  15. Improve the Message Filter on the Server

    We are receiving lots of email recently from email addresses external to our system but looking like they are from our users. For example we receive a message from "John Smith <info@spam.com>" where John Smith is the name of our Managing Director. These attempt to get the user to click a link, and although we have not had anyone do this yet, I fear it is only a matter of time.

    I would like to solve this by adding a server rule to filter messages from a username but NOT from our domain, and add "SPOOF" to the…

  16. Add an option for font and font size for automatic conversion of text emails into HTML

    If there is defined a HTML domain footer all passing plain text mails are converted into HTML, the HTML mails pass unchanged. The font to be used for conversion can't be defined anywhere. So the resulting mail usually contains a mix of fonts, what looks unesthetic (e.g. if combined TimesNewRoman and Arial).
