It is a good idea to integrate Kerio Connect and GFI Archiver so that emails processed by Kerio Connect are automatically archived by GFI Archiver.
GFI Archiver connects to the archive mailbox in Kerio Connect and downloads all the inbound and outbound emails from it. The emails in the archive mailbox get deleted automatically once downloaded by GFI Archiver. This way, you never lose emails, and searching emails becomes quick and easy.
- Enable Archiving in Kerio Connect.
a. Log in to Kerio Connect administration interface and create a new mailbox dedicated for archiving. Note: In Kerio Connect, adding a user is equivalent to creating a new mailbox (i.e.) user accounts represent physical mailboxes. When a user account is created, the email address will automatically be created as well.
b. Go to Configuration > Archiving and Backup > Archiving and under Email Archiving, check the Enable email archiving option.
c. Check Archive to the remote email address option and enter the journal mailbox email address created previously, in step 1.a.
d. Check or uncheck the different email types for archiving and click Apply to save settings.
- Connect GFI Archiver to the Kerio Connect archive mailbox.
NOTE: If installing GFI Archiver on the same machine as Kerio Connect, ensure that IIS is configured to use a different port than the default port 80 since this is used by Kerio Connect.
a. Log in to GFI Archiver.
b. Go to Configurations, and click Mail Servers to Archive.
c. Click Add.
d. On the Mail Server to Archive Wizard, select Manual enter journal mailbox details, and click Next.
e. Enter the following details:
Option Description Mail Server Enter the IP address or fully-qualified Kerio Connect mail server domain name. Connect using Select IMAP. IMAP Port The default is 143, or 993 when using SSL. Use SSL Select this option if Kerio Connect uses SSL. Login/Password Enter the Journal mailbox email address and password. Folder Select the mailbox folder from where to pick up emails to archive. By default, this is set to Inbox and requires no change.
f. Click Finish to finalize setup.
Test the integration by sending a test email to any Kerio Connect mail account and check if it is getting displayed under Archived Items in GFI Archiver.
