3. Create an Admin account Next you’ll need to create an Administrator account for the Administration Console. The password can’t be left blank, and must have at least six characters. You can administer your server from a remote machine running another supported platform (Windows or Linux).
4. Storing messages Now you need to pick a directory in which to store users’ messages. The default location is /usr/local/, though you could use a local RAID system, depending on how many users you have, how much email traffic you experience, and whether users’ email clients are configured to keep messages on the server.
5. Launch the Admin Console Once the Wizard has finished, it should tell you that the software has been successfully installed: click Quit to quit the installer. Now go to /Applications/Kerio MailServer/ and launch the Administration Console. Sign in using the administrator name and password you created earlier.
6. Basic settings Clicking on Configuration will give you an overview of the services available to you. If you need any explanations, the Administrator’s Guide is available from the Help menu, or in /Applications/Kerio MailServer/. Now click the expansion triangle next to Configuration, if it isn’t already open.
7. Setting up services Click Services. As we’re running a web server on this machine, we’ve stopped both HTTP and Secure HTTP services: these would normally access mailboxes via Kerio’s webmail and other services, such as accessing mail from Microsoft Entourage 2004 or 2008, using Entourage’s Exchange interface.
8. Setting up extra domains You can handle mail from more than one domain: click on Domains to set up extra ones. If you’re not sure which should be the Primary domain, a rule of thumb is to use the one with the most users. Change the Primary domain by selecting one from the list and clicking ‘Set as primary’.
