Kerio Connect 8.1 and above supports the ability to synchronize mail, contacts, and calendars to the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system via the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.
Beginning May 1, 2013, the support of Exchange ActiveSync in Kerio Connect is available as an add-on. For detailed information, read the Exchange ActiveSync FAQs.
Configuring Kerio Connect
There is no additional configuration necessary to support Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) from Microsoft Windows 8.
Check the following items:
Installing SSL certificate on your desktop
Users need to install a certificate if Kerio Connect uses a self-signed certificate.
Configuring Mail on Windows 8
Before you add an Exchange ActiveSync account, you must configure a Microsoft account (e.g. Hotmail, Windows Live, Outlook.com)
Now you can start using the Mail application and synchronize your Kerio Connect emails, contacts and calendars.
