Kerio MailServer 6.7
Kerio has released MailServer 6.7, adding a Global Address List, native support for iCal/CalDAV, and enhanced anti-spam support. The new version also includes an IMAP migration tool, making it easier to move data from other server software with minimal disruption.
The Global Address List allows all users -- including those on mobile devices like the iPhone -- to view a company-wide list of contacts. The list can also be synchronized with Apple's Open Directory, Microsoft's Active Directory and Kerio's user dictionary. New users can be added to the list automatically when their accounts are created.
Improved support for iCal and CalDAV allows Mac users to create private and shared calendars. Address Book groups are now natively supported, and Kerio has added improved configuration tools for both iCal and Microsoft Entourage.
Kerio says it has also optimized its anti-spam engine to take advantage of multi-core servers. A new "auto-learn" function helps the server more efficiently use spam that it receives as a tool to block future junk mail.
The IMAP migration tool is aimed at reducing customer fears of losing data should they choose to switch to MailServer. The tool -- which runs on Windows, Mac OS X or Linux -- transfers domains, accounts, folders and e-mail messages from any local or hosted IMAP server.
MailServer 6.7 sells for $500 under a 10-user license; adding an extra $100 includes McAfee Antivirus.
