The users might face file corruption issues and emails stuck in the Outbox. Following errors can be displayed:
Index error in folder ~firstname.lastname@example.org/Calendar: Cannot parse calendar message file 00000019.eml

index.fld file is a local anti-virus software that has not been configured to exclude the scanning of the mail server and the store directories. We strongly recommend using the built-in Bitdefender antivirus or one of the supported antivirus plugins included with Kerio Connect to scan messages for viruses.
