Re: [PLUG] The One True OS, migrating to

Kerio Mail Server has excellent IMAP support including soon to be released off line local caching mode. I have excellent results using both Outlook 2003, 2007 and KMS with IMAP and that includes PGP Enterprise who's integration is seamless

Subject: Re: [PLUG] The One True OS, migrating to

outlook and imap is almost useless. outlook likes to completely freeze
the interface during imap send/receive operations (ironically - it
doesn't do this with POP - makes you go hmmm...). Also, they made it
realy hard to HIDE deleted messages (cause in IMAP delete = flag for
deletion later). So instead of the message going away - it remains
with with a line through it. MS's IMAP implementation is clearly
intended to allow IMAP connections while simultaneously discouraging
them by frustrating users. IMAP and Outlook should be avoided unless
you find a 3rd party app to allow better integration.
