In a typical manager - assistant scenario, the assistant can write and respond to email messages on behalf of the manager. The manager can also allow the assistant to access their calendar and send and/or respond to meeting requests on their behalf.Delegation in Kerio Connect 8.2 works with the following clients:
Improvements in Kerio Connect client
We hear and value your voice. Based on feedback from you, we have implemented many requested features and UI improvements in the Kerio Connect client. Most of them further improve it's performance and usability. Here's a short list of the most interesting improvements:
Instant messaging - group chat
The previous release of Kerio Connect introduced instant messaging with native jabber (XMPP) support. Now we've added group chat. Set up a permanent chat room for an ongoing meeting with your colleagues, or start a group chat on the fly simply by entering their names. Need to have a private conversation? No problem. Simply lock your room with a password so you control who can get in.
In version 8.0, we introduced an anti-spam feature to prevent spoofing of local domains by enforcing authentication. We've now improved on this feature, to offer an additional level of identity verification by making sure that the authenticated user is sending from one of their own addresses, and not that of another user or domain.
Password policies are commonly used when integrating a directory service like AD or OD. Kerio Connect admins that don't use AD or OD can now set password policies against the local user dagtabase. For newly created and changed passwords, admins can define the minimum password complexity requirements like password length, use of special characters, etc. as well as specifying the password reset frequency.
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) improves the deliverability of email message by ensuring the authenticity of the sender's domain via a digital signature placed in the message header and verified against the DNS. Kerio Connect can now insert a DKIM signature on all outgoing mail.
