  1. remote wipe

    Allow admins to remote wipe a users phone and only remove kerio email configuration not the entire phone.

    Currently we have to reset the users password, log in as the user and remote wipe their connected Mobile Phones.

  2. allow user to determine which access to allow to other users.

    allow user to determine which access to allow to other users.
    ie : some users can view events content, others can only view if a user is available or not, for a whole calendar and not only events.
    opposite to private events : a setting for the whole calendar.

  3. Phishing/scam email filter - allow admin filter to block fake sender names (match sender name and email to local directory name)

    Let's say the boss is John Doe with email johndoe@GFI.com.

    A scammer sends an email from John Doe with email johndoe@GMAIL.com to the CFO, asking him to wire transfer $10,0000.

    The CFO does the wire transfer, because the scammer made the sender name be his boss' name, John Doe, which is all the CFO sees (unless he hovers his mouse over the sender name, or looks at the mail headers).

    Solution is a two-part rule, which the user account filter allows but the admin custom rules does not:

    IF:
    sender name is John Doe
    and
    sender email is NOT …

  4. Multiple Internet connections

    Ability to have multiple internet connections and route networks accordingly. I don't want to use failover or load balancing as its not whats required.

    Say I have 3 internet connections:
    I want to send high priority network over the fast connection
    Regular traffic over the standard connection
    unimportant traffic can go over the slow laggy connection.

  5. Attachment File Type in Message Filters

    It would be nice to see attachment filters in the Message filter Rules;

    for example, allow to receive PDF attachment for specific User and restrict not to send them

  6. Message filter - more options

    Now i can create a rule "contains attachment". I suggest a rule "Contains NO attachment" even better if i can specify what kind of attachment.
    Background:
    invoice@domaim.* is solely to receive pdf invoices, no other messages. my above which can enforce the needs.

  7. Calendar Upper display

    Upper calendar Region does not resize automatically (scroll bar only). If too many daily entries are valid, they are not shown. Solution: Resize Region by no. of entries

  8. Allow an account to be locked for sending exesive email

    It would be nice if you could have accounts locked if they send more messages than allowed by the administrator. For instance a user could be limited to 100 messages in 1 hour. If they exceed that their account is locked and a email is sent the the administrator so they can investigate the situation. This would help prevent compromised computers from sending tons of spam through the mail server.

  9. SMTP service (port 25) wouldn't start because it was already in use with Exim4??

    Just installed the Kerio Connect appliance. The SMTP service (port 25) wouldn't start because it was already in use with Exim4?? Room for improvement?

  10. Backwards compatibility for ActiveSync protocol

    https://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/connect/content/email-clients/activesync/setting-a-compatible-exchange-activesync-version-for-specific-mobile-devices-1799.html

    In order to make ActiveSync backwards compatible for older versions, the online manual above suggest to manually make changes to the config file. Kerio Connect should be smart enough to detect the OS version on the mobile device and use the appropriate protocol version.

  11. Do not hide emails that contain a .ics file attachment in webmail

    The specific issue I'm having is someone sends a calendar invite to a user (ie, email that has a .ics file attached) then the email itself does not show in webmail and the only place the user can "see" the message is in their calendar inbox. This has two big problems:

    1) The user DOES get to see the actual email on their Android phone or another mail program (syncing via standard IMAP) so is confused why the email is missing from their webmail inbox.

    2) The content of the actual email is missing from the webmail system. The only…

  12. Configure maximum connections per IP from the web admin interface.

    The max HTTPS connections per IP limit (newly imposed in 9.2.6) is set to 100 by default. For domains where many users are connecting from the same network behind NAT, this causes various issues with web and Exchange clients, making Kerio Connect unusable. To increase this limit, the value MaxConnectionsIP needs to be increased from the default 100 in mailserver.cfg. It would be for more convenient to have the ability to configure/disable this limit from within the admin interface.

  13. Visibility of Folder Items Count with Soft and Hard Caps

    I would love to have a way of knowing if anyone is in violation of having more than X items in a folder. I’d like the ability to set a soft and hard cap with warnings to me and the user via email. Also some kind of warning in the admin console of the violation.

    It would be great to have visibility of users' folder items count in the admin console. However, I don't want to navigate through everyone's folder looking for issues.

  14. Delay startup on macOS 10.10 and later

    With macOS 10.10 and later, with Server installed, the system starts Postfix Master and listens on the SMTP ports (25, 587 etc.) for several seconds, EVEN if the Mail service is disabled in the Server.app. Thus Kerio Connect reports that it cant start listening on those ports, effectively disabling those services.

    It would be great if Kerio Connect could delay startup or check again after a few seconds if it could listen on the services/ports marked as Automatic.

  16. Add Ability to Block Spoofed Display Names

    The ability to be able to block spoofed display names of users from your domain would be very useful. It's getting more common and fools many people who don't take the time to look at the email address or attachment/link.

  17. activation of reverse DNS (PTR) check for Client and Server individually

    Currently,the "reverse DNS (PTR) check" affects the Server and the Client IP.
    If we deactivate the check of a Clients IP, also the Mail- Servers won't be checked.

    In some cases, we don't want the Clients IP to be checked but we can't deactivate the option due we also would deactivate the needed Check of the servers

  18. Admin panel

    Hello Kerio improvement team!

    I would like to suggest an improvement .

    At the moment we can setup automatic Items clean-out for user via Admin panel as per following article:
    https://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/connect/content/server-configuration/accounts/maintaining-user-accounts-in-kerio-connect-1179.html

    My suggestion is to implement functionality where this could be adjusted to a single sender or conversation.

    For example: we should be able to setup a rule where messages or/and all conversation received from user@domain.com will be automatically permanently deleted without an option for recovery after set amount of time (30 days or so).

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
    Regards
    Alex

  20. Anti Name-Spamming Feature

    A new Anti-Spam feature would be nice: Incoming (external!) eMails should be checked against names of the users on the kerio server (not addresses!).

    Our company get's some spam from completely external servers & unknown eMail addresses. Only the sender names are faked ones from our own employees - existing names from Kerio Connect. So the idea would be to check the received names against the names within Kerio. Additionally a whitelist would be great to allow name & address combinations from real existing second email addresses of members.
