How can we improve Kerio Connect?

Migrate from Kerio to Kerio

As servers come and go it should be easier to migrate a mail domain and users with the settings from one Kerio server to another.

This will be useful for example if you want to migrate multiple Kerio servers to 1 server or want to split a heavy loaded server to multiple servers.

    Workaround solutions are helpful for one-time activity, but we need to do it several times during the year. I think a console-feauture is needed! Able to move 1 or more user from 1 server to another or move complete domain.
    Can I submit a suggestion? Developers can use the koff-tecnology to migrate users?

    Actually (only few users) I use Koff-Plugin to migrate user, syncronize profile from old server and when it's done I connect the new server and redo the activity.

    I have 69 votes left, I'd like to go all-in on this.
    this would make it so much easier to move installations between architectures and OS versions as well.

    If I could give this one 1000 votes I would. This is a great idea. Currently, the best way to move from Kerio to Kerio is to use rsync. While working with GetSync'd, I performed several migrations this way. Migration Wiz will also work, but it doesn't move the calendars and contacts.

    add ability to migrate Kerio accounts to another Kerio Server including Contacts and Calendars.

    I could offer a workaround.

    1 - Add the user at the new server
    2 - Copy the files from the mailstore (Linux offers rsync or scp)
    3 - Check new kerio mailbox via webmail
    4 - remove user from old kerio install
    5 - enjoy
